we have a quality music instrument store in Waco. My family has gone to Buzze's for many years. I got my own first trumpet here, and am now renting a clarinet for my daughter. The staff is always friendly and very helpful with any questions we have. In this economic downturn, with other music stores closing here in town, this little store seems to just keep chugging along. Their cards say they've been in business since 1942! The prices for both supplies and repair seem very fair based on what some of my friends have told me about other stores.
Based on my experience, if you have any children in the school band, save yourself the trouble and stop by Buzze Music first.
