I came from Knoxville Tennessee where one of the owners of the music I bought everything from was friends with my father. And I've purchased items from my fathers friend at the music store at home since I was in grade school. And I have grandkids. Now imagine coming to Charlotte in finding a music store that feels just like the one at home. When I'm in Knoxville and I visit Lunsford Music I told all my friends about how much I enjoy Sam Ash music. It's a home music store away from home. And I've been purchasing all of my music and anything else I need for my instruments at Sam Ash. The staff is great and they've had everything that I've needed.
