I had rented an instrument in the past from McCrea's with no problem and I didn't think to check the web before I sold my daughter's flute to them. What a nightmare! They quoted a price and took the flute - I left with a receipt and the promise that Mrs. McCrea would send a check in 10 days. I never received payment. I called - I got the run around. I called again and again and again. I was put on hold and hung up on. This is the worst business I have ever dealt with. The owners are thieves and liars! Be warned! Go elsewhere!

I wanted to purchase a trumpet for my son so I went to what I thought was a professional, established music company. First, they tried to sell me a used trumpet that had several problems. I ordered a new trumpet and was assured it would be in within two weeks. It didn't arrive on schedule and I kept getting excuses from McCrea's. Finally, I found out that they had severe financial problems and the shipper would not release it to them until they paid for it. I cancelled the order after a month and it took another month to get them to refund my deposit.
