A Message from the Ash Family

Dear Friends,

Sam Ash, founder

Thank you for visiting Sam Ash Direct. Your continued patronage of our company has helped our business flourish for more than eighty years, and your support and inspiration has helped us make Sam Ash Music the premier destination for musicians of all styles, abilities, and walks of life. If you are new to Sam Ash Music, we hope that you will return often. If you are an old friend, then we think you will like the changes and investments we have made to make your online shopping experience fast, convenient, and trouble-free.

When Sam and Rose Ash opened the first Sam Ash Music store in Brooklyn, NY, in 1924, they could never have imagined what it would become. Sam Ash Music is now the largest family-owned musical instrument retailer in the world — and it remains family owned and operated to this day. Three generations of the Ash family still run our company, and each of us is "hands on" with the day-to-day operations of the business.

Often, people who call us for information are surprised to find themselves speaking with a member of the Ash family. Our long-time customers know this is our tradition from back when we were one little store in Brooklyn, NY, and it continues even now with our scores of retail stores across the United States. Our family's name is on the door, so we take a personal interest in you, your experience and your satisfaction.

Of course, Sam Ash is a lot more than just the Ash family. Our company has over 1600 employees, most of whom are serious musicians who care about our customers. So, when you call Sam Ash Direct, you'll always get the most honest and helpful advice, no matter what kind of music you're into. We are committed to serving all of your musical needs with our vast selection of the finest musical instruments, products, and print music in any price range. Whether you are a novice, a professional, or someone who just loves to make music, we have something that's just right for you.

Keep your web browser pointed to SamAsh.com for all the latest news and information about Sam Ash Direct. As always we guarantee the highest level of service and the absolute lowest prices, just as we have since 1924.

Most important, we want to make your experience with us the very best it can be. Any suggestions you have are welcome. So, don't hesitate to share your thoughts and comments with us.

And keep playing!
