Thanks for the awesome experience! Matt Trombley was great to work with!! I love the relaxed environment where you can walk in and play and not feel like your bothering anyone. My 3 year old even got to bang around on some drums! Thanks guys! I'll be back!! Great people and great deals!

In my opinion I think Advance Music is the best music store in the world. Mike Trombley is the finest music store owner on the planet, and he has a big heart. I have done alot more business at other music stores before I moved to Burlington, and compared to the friendliness of the staff at the Burlington store, I never felt welcome or my business appreciated. I want to make a living playing music again, so I can do lots of business. They treat me like a friend and even family. The best drum set of my life which is in this picture I bought at Advance for a generous trade in of an old set, and only four hundred dollars. Everything i have ever bought at Advance Music has worked perfectly. I wish I could do radio testimonials for them. All are wonderful down at the store, but Mike Trombley is by far the coolest music store owner on the planet. It is my favorite place to do business.

Tell her I've played so much my lip & thumb are sore & I had to put it down!!! And Jess is thrilled with her guitar. We always feel at home when we come to your store & I just wanted to say "Thank you!" I always say the good service people give aren't complimented enough & I wanted to give you guys a pat on the back. Thanks once again!!

Matt and Chris from the Drum Department helped me out tremendously recently when I needed assistance restoring a vintage marching snare drum I inherited from my Dad. They threw a lot of terms at me I had never heard before, but they did not make fun of me for not knowing drum lingo. :^) They were very helpful, cheerful, humorous, and they even gave me the name and number of two experts who could appraise my instrument. I will definitely shop at Advanced again for repairs and for percussion "toys". :^)

Of all the places in Burlington, Advance Music here, treats me better than all other establishments put together. . They value me as a customer. The nicest drumset deal of my life, I got at Advance Music. I also appreciate how Wyatt and the other staff tried to get me out there and fixing my floor tom. They were also gracious when my drumset got stolen and sold, where other stores would have been nasty. They cut me slack as a customer, more than any other place.

Drove into B town a day or two ago
Headed to Advance Music
It's the only place go
Every employee there is great
Was looking for a new Snare Drum
I had time to contemplate
This Ludwig Black Beauty
Was sitting there on a stand
Tis a very fine snare drum
Maybe the fairest in the land
It kept calling out to me
In your hands I want to be
This snare will blow you away
In the Advance Music Family
I will always stay
So thanks to Mike and crew
You guys always know what to do

Shopping at Advance will always be a memory of me and my dad's relationship. As soon as my Dad told me about Advance, around age 10, I have shopped since, spending every penny I saved as a kid. Great staff, great store. Support Local Businesses.
