What Folks Have To Say About Us:

"You'll not find a nicer family to do business with nor one with more knowledge!  Simply GREAT all around." - Banjopa1

"Best guitar I've ever played in 50 years.  It's me all the way!" - Garry

"I just returned home from a very successful weekend of playing multiple sets at the Gettysburg Music Muster, with the banjo that was serviced at your shop prior to this event. Thank you Karl for your fine craftsmanship and prompt delivery." - Jim K.

"I bought an Oscar Schmidt Ukulele from your store for my son's 15th birthday.  It was a tenor with some very nice pearl inlay.  He loves it!  Also bought him his own Snark Tuner so he doesn't steal mine!  Both of these items had very nice price points, and Evelyn was a big help too, so it was an easy decision to buy from the Bucks County Folk Music Shop!" - Jim D.

"I am 100% completely satisfied with my purchase!  The quality, sound, and set up of the instrument far exceeded my expectations.  Also, thank you for helping me select my accessories.  They are perfect!  I would highly recommend Bucks County Folk Music to anyone -- especially those with a discriminating ear and taste for fine instruments.  Lastly, it was such a pleasure to meet you.  Thank you for your hospitality and for taking the time to go over the instrument with me, and I greatly appreciate the sharing of your knowledge about music, information about the store, and opportunities to meet other musicians in the area.  You are really, really, really great people!!!  Please accept my deepest heartfelt thanks for everything." - David C.
