Hi Richard,Thanks for the saxophone - it's arrived safely and my daughter loves it!
H.T. Surbiton (New Trevor James Alphasax)
Thanks for your excellent service and it was a pleasure dealing with you,
F.J. Offton (Ex rental Yamaha YAS-25 alto saxophone)
Thanks Richard. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and the service you offer really does help to give people a chance to learn on a good quality instrument, at a very reasonable cost whilst getting more pleasure from music. Especially at the early stages when a poor quality instrument could easily put them off. I will happily recommend you to any other parents/players. Who knows, if I prove myself on the alto then a tenor could be next! Thanks again.
All the best,
M.G. Chelmsford (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Just to let you know, the Alpha Sax has arrived. Looks great, so much lighter and keys look manageable for 7 year old hands. Thank you for your efficient service.
There's a good chance others in our school may use you.
C.B. Salisbury (NewAlphasax)
Hello Hazel, Pleased to report that the saxophone arrived safely this afternoon.
The adventure has begun - thank you to all for your supporting my decision making, prompt delivery and helpful videos
I look forward to the journey
D.H. Edinburgh (Esprit alto saxophone)
Hey Richard - Wow time flies!
Yes go ahead and charge my account for the balance - have absolutely loved learning to play!
Such a great thing you're doing, have recommended you to all my friends.
M.T. London (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
I hope you had a wonderful holiday.
Thank you for updating me and arranging the final payment.
You have all been most helpful and I will certainly come back to you should I be on the market again for another sax.
Thank you again Helen
C.G. Islewoth (Yanagisawa S992 sopano saxophone)
That’s wonderful! Thanks ever so much Helen, I will be recommending you to my colleagues!
E.M. Swanscombe (ex rental Yamaha YBS-32e baritone saxophone)
That’s great thank you Helen, it’s been a brilliant sax as has your service. Having a decent instrument is really helpful in these early months but comes with the dilemma of committing a fairly large amount of money when you don’t have that much idea about different brands , sounds and instruments and what you’ll want as you go along, especially in somewhere like Cornwall.
A.P. St Agnes (New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
It was pleasure to meet Hazel and chat with her about music.
Please thank her for completing the hire paperwork in such a painless manner.
I will keep you posted about how the clarinet blows.
C.H. Wetherby (Ex demo mint condition Yamaha YCL-255s clarinet)
Good morning Hazel,
The Sax arrived as arranged this morning very promptly. We are not easy to find so DPD did well. Thanks very much, your service has been very prompt and efficient.
The Sax is a birthday present for my wife, so hopefully she will do well - she is very musical, puts me to shame. So we may want to purchase, we shall see.
But anyway thanks again, I couldn't have asked for a better service, if you need reccomendations etc I will be happy to provide one.
All the best,
I.H. Rossendale (New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Many thanks Helen, for your fantastically prompt & efficient service. Much appreciated.
G.P. Monxton (Ex rental Trevor James Alphasax)
Many thanks for this Helen. It has been a very positive and stress fee process hiring and buying the instrument with uk sax hire. I will certainly recommend the company.
K.L. London (Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thank you for confirming this. Charlie is enjoying playing even though it is only short lessons through school!
Thanks for your help! I have recommended you to friends and told the music teachers to recommend your company.
F.H. West Kirby (Esprit alto saxophone)
Hello Helen,Thank you so much for your email confirming that we now own the sax and for the fabulous customer service we’ve received from yourselves. I will most certainly be recommending you to others who are thinking of taking up an instrument.
CD West Kirby (Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks for this email confirming proof of ownership. It was a pleasure for me trading with UKSaxhire.
I wish everybody at the company all the best.
M.A. London (New Yamaha YOB-241b oboe)
Just to confirm that we received the saxophone today. It’s a beautiful instrument and it was an absolute pleasure to make the purchase through your company.
I am very impressed by the professional, courteous and very prompt service.
R.S. Enfield (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thanks so much for all of this over the last year, it's been super. I've left you all a cracking review on Google maps and will be sure to recommend you all to any friends in the future!
N.A. Sheffield (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Playing is going well, my son is loving it! We think the sax is perfect for him and therefore we would like to complete the purchase for £269.
Thank you for the fantastic service over the last year and hopefully we'll be in touch in later years to purchase a larger sax!
L.S. Grimsby (Trevor James Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks Hazel, yes, I will need to find some extra time from somewhere. Very excited though. I would like to say that your set up is very good, and I found everything very easy, and the prices are very reasonable. Well done!
P.G. Maidstone (ex demo Trevor James Esprit alto saxophone hire)
Hi Richard & Helen,
Thanks for your email. Please charge the balance to my card ending 4721. How exciting!
By the way, an experienced classical player who I took some lessons with, said that he was impressed with the instrument and its preparation - I thought you'd like to hear the good opinion
Please process the final charges now, and I would be grateful if you could send the transfer of ownership documentation asap.
J. B. New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Many thanks for this clear email.
Thank you also for your excellent service and I’ll be in touch if I need anything in future and be sure to recommend you to anyone and everyone!
With warm wishes
S.S. Chichester (Ex rental Buffet E13 clarinet)
Many thanks for the confirmation that we now own it, that’s great. Will is still living playing-he’s doing really well and is about to do Grade 2! I will absolutely be in touch in touch, you’ve been brilliant and so easy to deal with.
Many thanks again, and kind regards
R.K. Edinburgh (Trevor James Alphasax)
Hi Hazel and Richard
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the saxophone - It is beautiful.
My son had his first lesson on it today and the teacher also wrote me a note to say what a great sax it is.
Thought it would be nice to let you know!
Thanks so much
M.L. Radlett (New Trevor James Artemis curved soprano saxophone)
Thank you and thank you for all your help. Edward is absolutely delighted with his trumpet, it sounds fantastic.
S.B. Bradwell (New Yamaha YTR-2330 trumpet purchased via AIPS VAT free scheme).
Thank you very much for your email! I think you're business model is fantastic, and you have really helped me out. I don't think I could have managed to buy such a great instrument outright.
A.M. Sheffield (Trevor James Classic ii tenor saxophone).
Thank you very much for a great service. A very nice and shiny saxophone arrived today.
J. P. London - (New Trevor James Alphasax hire)
It was great to meet Richard on Saturday and to absorb his excellent advice.
Having a great time going through my homework each day.
Thankyou for the additional documents.
All the best,
S.R. Buxton (ex rental Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone hire)
Thank you Helen
Your company has been great.
If I hear of anyone wanting to hire an instrument I will definitely recommend you.
H.C. Wellingborough (ex demo Buffet B12 clarinet)
Thanks very much Helen. I’d just like to thank you and the team for the fantastic service you provide and an opportunity to give budding musicians a chance to try out something new without a huge outlay from the outset. I will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family.
N.W. Bexley (Esprit alto saxophone)
The Soprano has arrived safe and sound and looks beautiful! Thank you for the quick delivery and great service as ever! I will recommend your company to as many people as possible.
T.T. Hastings (ex demo mint condition Yanagisawa S901s silver plated soprano saxophone)
Just to let you know that the sax has been delivered and what a lovely surprise...quality is great for a beginner and so much more manageable!!
All the best,
N.J.B. Haywards Heath (New Trevor James Alphasax for daughter aged 8)
I received my flute this morning and I couldn't be more impressed with the instrument and how well packaged it was! Your service is truly incredible and it's safe to say I will be spreading the word.
Thank you so much, you have made my day!
I.J. Down (New Trevor James 10x flute)
Thank you so much for all your fantastic service, sax has arrived and is already in use as I’m writing!
However, as he is playing, he’s realized that it would be really good for him to have a padded strap (I’m currently improvising with a scarf so his neck is protected). Is there any chance we can still add this to our hire, I think there’s an additional charge of £1 per month? Or could you advise us on buying one? Could you let me know please.
R. H. Totnes - New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Thanks for your email.
We had a good trip thanks and were really pleased to meet Richard. He was extremely helpful.
Meg has loved being able to play her Tenor in the University Big Band this week and has a Tenor lesson scheduled with her teacher this week. She has already passed your name on to another student who may be looking to rent an instrument.
Many thanks for all your help.
J.B. Bingley - New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Hi Richard and all,
Just a quick note to say that the saxophone has been delivered safe and sound. What a gorgeous Sax it is too !! I’m very pleased.
Thank you for your quick response in processing my order, a top service.
I.A. - Holsworthy - new Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Thanks for the email and such wonderful service. I will definitely recommend your company to friends and family.
S.G. Hanbury - Ex demo Esprit alto saxophone
The saxophone arrived safely yesterday and my son is very pleased with it.
Thank you so much for your very excellent efficient service!
C.C. York -new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone
Good morning Richard
I just wanted to say thank you so much for such an efficient service. Everything was packaged so beautifully. I'm so pleased and managed to reach lesson 16 - so far so good!
Thank you so much, what a wonderful service you provide!
Have a good day,
C.B. Nantwich - New Esprit alto saxophone
Just to let you know that the sax arrived yesterday and is great.
L.S. Carlisle (ex demo) mint condition Esprit alto saxophone hire
Hi Helen, Thank you for taking the time out to discuss purchase of the Bari sax. i can confirm that i have made a BACS payment of £2780.02 to your account in full payment.
I would to say thank you for a superb service and hire of a quality instrument. I will certainly recommend you to my fellow musicians.
Please can you confirm receipt of payment.
M.G. Wickford (ex rental Yanagisawa B901 baritone saxophone)
Thank you very much. You offer and run a brilliant service. I will definitely be back if, and when, I need an upgrade.
V.E. Derby (ex demo mint condition Buffet B12 clarinet)
Many thanks for your email. My daughter has made really good progress with the flute and is very keen to continue. My clarinet progress has been minimal but we would like to go ahead and purchase both instruments. Can the outstanding £360 for both be charged to my credit card?
Many thanks for the excellent service we received both at the start and now. I would willingly recommend your company to friends as your prices are very reasonable and everyone has been very helpful.
S.P. Westhill (Yamaha YFL-211 flute and Buffet B12 clarinet)
Thank you, yes I love the sax!
Thank you very much, it has been a wonderful way to get to know the sax.
D.C. Edinburgh - ex demo (mint condition) Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Many thanks Hazel, will definitely use your services again reassured, will pass on the details to friends too, you do an amazing service.
J.G. London - New Yamaha YCL-255 clarinet.
Thank you for your email and the receipt. It was a pleasure meeting you last Sunday and I really appreciated the sax lesson. The Yamaha YAS 280 is brilliant. It really does just encourage me to play.
Thank you again. I am sure we will talk again soon.
Gordon - Buxton (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Yes, please keep me on your database.
I am doing a blog post soon to answer FAQs for prospective Saxophone students, I will be popping a link to you in there, all my guys who use you are very pleased with the instruments and customer service.
Alison Diamond (sax teacher) email@example.com www.alisondiamond.co.uk
I just wanted to say thanks for the Yanagisawa which arrived safely on Friday. Having spent the weekend playing it, I am delighted - it is a beautiful instrument. The tone is lovely and the sound and intonation are so consistent across the whole range of the sax. I did like my Yamaha, but this is so easy to play it's a whole different ball game!
Thanks also for the reeds you included - I've always played Ricos and never tried Vandorens before. I didn't get on with the Java (although it might just be that particular one), but I liked the ZZ so much I am going to get some more.
M.W. Cornwall (Yamaha alto sax taken in part exchange for a New Yanagisawa AW01 alto sax)
Yes, thanks the playing is going well (at least I think it is – not sure about my wife) frustrating at times but rewarding. I had no musical experience whatsoever so it’s all knew. I got ABRSM grade 1 a few months ago. At 64 I was just a bit older than the other candidates! Without your scheme I would not have taken the plunge and bought a decent instrument so either wouldn’t have done it at all or would have ended up with a dodgy used one and given up.
I’m very happy with this sax and can’t really see a time when it would hold me back! What’s more likely is that I’ll want a tenor but that would be in addition to the alto.
J.B. Walgrave (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
I hope you remember me. I came to see you on 23 January this year with my partner and bought a black and gold Alphasax from you. I also bought a Saxholder harness from you which I really like.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and enthusiasm on that day and let you know that I absolutely love the Alphasax and am really enjoying learning how to play it. I have a lesson each week from a really good teacher and am getting there slowly but surely.
It has given me a new interest and has even encouraged Dennis (who you also met on that day) to pick up his guitar again after many years. We even play some duets, although we wouldn't make much money busking!
Anyhow, thanks again. I just thought you would appreciate some positive feedback for all your hard work.
Sonia (New Trevor James Alphasax)
Thanks very much for sending the Sax...it's beautiful! Am I able to hire a sax stand please?
N.O. London (ex demo Esprit alto saxophone).
Oh wow this is wonderful! I am so happy I own my sax!
It’s the best saxophone in the world and I will never let with it. Even my teacher says it’s amazing!
With regards to the discount for instrument hire is this just for new rentals as I am currently hiring a trumpet?
I may look to upgrade the trumpet at some point if my daughter continues.
N.S. (Trevor James Horn 88 tenor saxophone purchase and Yamaha trumpet hire)
Many thanks for confirming proof of ownership and for the great service you've given us over the last year.
D. S. Guildford (hired and then purchased an ex demo Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thank you so much. I never thought I’d be playing a saxophone this year, let alone the owner of a beautiful Yanagisawa Soprano, when I rang you last year. I thought I was going to have to give up playing. For that I am truly grateful.
Thank you to you and your team for being so professional and efficient.
I will be recommending at every opportunity.
R.S. Dorset (hired an ex demo Yanagisawa S901s and then used the rental paid towards the purchase of a new Yanagisawa SW-020 soprano saxophone)
Hello Helen, Thanks so much.
I’d like to take this opportunity to say what a complete pleasure it’s been dealing with you.... your level of customer service and flexibility is brilliant and pretty rare.
A.L. Leek (new Yanagisawa B901 baritone saxophone)
We received the sax yesterday thank you and have opened it up this eve whilst our daughter was at Brownies. Excellent service! Can’t wait for her Birthday now. 1st lesson arranged for Sat 10th March.
J.W. Deeside (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone hire)
Thanks for the receipt. Just want to say a big thank you to Richard for Saturday, the lesson was fun and for letting me try out a few different saxophones without feeling any pressure what so ever to buy a certain model.
I did have a bit of a practice Saturday when I got back, so pleased with my purchase and glad I went with what sounded and felt right for me.
The hire service you guys offer is a brilliant way to learn an instrument, I’m not sure I would have picked up the Saxophone if you guys didn’t offer this.
I would recommend you to anyone I know thinking of having a go at learning to play an instrument
H.C. Sheffield (new Esprit alto sax hire and then transferred the rental paid towards the purchase of a new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thank you again Helen, I'm very glad I choose UK sax hire. Outstanding service.
T.S. Bridgnorth (Hired an Esprit alto sax and then transferred the rental paid towards the purchase of a Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thankyou so much for the receipt and the excellent service I've had along the way. It's been so easy to deal with you and your team. I think it's a great way to buy - spreads the cost, and gives you time to decide whether you like the instrument. I liked the fact that I could hire 2 simultaneously for a period of time as the comparison over a period of time, as opposed to half a day in a music shop was much more useful. It was great that you were able to take in my vintage sax and old B12 too in part exchange - less risky than going to e-Bay route.
I'll certainly be back if I decide to try another instrument in the future, and will continue to recommend you to my musical friends.
J.H. Lonffield (New Yanagisawa AW010 alto saxophone)
Many thanks for your help and thank you to Richard a very enjoyable lesson.
F.P. Sutton Coldfield (Ex demo Trevor James Classic alto saxophone)
Thank you for your email. I’m very pleased with the sax.
S.M. Swansea (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Dear Richard Hazel Helen Kate
...thank you all for making this Xmas a little bit more special for my daughter Catherine (and me )
... and when she opened the box she was able to play all the notes a lot easier than the old sax she had been practising on;.... and both herself and her boyfriend loved the tone !!!
M.O. South Harrow (a proud dad!) - New Yamaha YAS-62 alto saxophone
Thank you for the video, and your time yesterday.
Harry loves the sax!
G.C. Stockport (ex rental Artemis alto saxophone)
Thank you so much for sending the saxaphone, it arrived today and is currently being played as we speak. It has a lovely sound and I'm looking forward to many hours of hearing it (I think!).
J.H. Berkshire (Ex rental Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks very much for the smooth and efficient service.
R.M. Sale (New Esprit alto saxophone)
I am really enjoying playing my saxophone. I am so glad that a company like yours exists because I could never have afforded to buy a saxophone but being able to rent one has finally meant that I could learn to play one which I have wanted to do for years. I would like to buy the saxophone using the 12 monthly instalments plan.
A. W. Sheffield (New Esprit alto saxophone)
Hi Richard and Helen,
I’m emailing to confirm receipt of my saxophone and to thank you for your prompt advice and assistance; firstly with the hiring of my first saxophone and secondly with my purchase.
As a complete beginner, the option to hire everything needed to start playing was brilliant and the hire terms excellent value for money. I would highly recommend you to anyone wishing to take up an instrument. I looked at various options before choosing uksaxhire and did so as a result of the feedback given on your website.
Please feel free to use my comments.
V. H. Tonbridge (Excited owner of a brand new SR Evo!)
New Esprit alto saxophone and then upgraded to a new Trevor James SR Evo alto sax on purchase.
Thank you so much for the rental arrangements and being so helpful and efficient in your transactions.
Kathryn is getting on well with the clarinet and if we need anything else we will let you know. Could be in the market for an A clarinet in due course if you come across anything!
J.M. Harpenden (New Buffet R13 clarinet)
Thank you so much for the lesson today; I really enjoyed it.
R.W. Swanbourne (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Dear Richard ,Hazel and Helen.
Since hiring my Yamaha YAS 280 from you earlier in the year, I have since passed my ABRSM Grade Alto Sax exam In November with merit.
I'm delighted with myself, so thank you for the hire of a great saxophone ideally suited for a beginner.
There were times when I thought I'm giving this up, issues with faulty embouchure, nerves, even at my age , but fortunately I persevered , so preparing now for grade 2 in 2018.
Have a happy and prosperous Christmas.
One very happy customer.
D. M. Huntingdon (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Good morning Richard
The Sax arrived safely on Friday, thank you again for organising everything so quickly. We are really pleased with the instrument and look forward to hearing Amelia progress.

Just to confirm saxophone arrived this afternoon, one very happy and excited little boy at home.
D.J. Abergwilli (ex rental Alphasax)
Just confirming that I have received the sax. It’s all’s in order, and I’ve already insured it with New Moon (thanks for the discount code). I've had a quick toot at lunchtime. It blows well and sounds lovely. I tested the tuning at the end of my session, and it’s remarkable, right across the range.
Thanks very much,
S.M. Nottingham (New Yanagisawa AW-01 alto saxophone)
I just wanted to thank you for forwarding the Bari Saxophone so promptly, it is a lovely instrument.
My son, Will, is very pleased with it and glad to have something to practice on whilst awaiting his audition for the RAF Band.
Once again many thanks.

P.B. Chippenham (Yamaha YCL-221 bass clarinet)
Hi Richard and Hazel,
We took the sax up to Lottie this weekend, she is very pleased with it.
Thanks for your help sorting this in a short timescale.
J.N. Stockport (Ex demo mint condition New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
The saxo has arrived in good conditions and my son is already enjoying playing.
M. T. Huntington (Ex demo Esprit alto saxophone)
I thought you might like to see the feedback we got from Ashlynn's school music teacher regarding her instrument.
"Ashlynn did very well yesterday and the instrument you have hired for her is very good, much better than others I have seen this term, so her progress should be steady and consistent now that she has something to practise on."
K.L. London (new Trevor James Classic ii alto saxophone)
We received the sax today! Ash my daughter was ecstatic especially as it came with quite a few extras. Thank you for the quick turnaround and making the whole process so easy. Fingers crossed she'll love playing it!
K.L. London (New Trevor James Classic ii alto saxophone)
Thank you all,

Thank you do much for such prompt service, will def recommend to others!
Ps I used to play and can't wait to have a go later I have my reeds at the ready....I always regret not carrying on.
L.S. Crewe (Esprit alto saxophone)
So sorry, I meant to send you a mail on Tuesday to confirm receipt of the flute, she took it to school yesterday and they confirmed it's exactly what she needs for her beginner lesson, thank you again.
D.D. Glasgow (Vivace flute)
Thanks for your email, that's great. Yes, you will receive a text message on Tuesday morning from the courier with the tracking info to let you know when it will arrive.
Thank you so much for filling in the rental form for the flute, we have processed your order and have scheduled the delivery to leave us on Monday the 4th of September, to be with you at your work address for Tuesday the 5th as requested.
Just to let you know that the Saxophone arrived safely on Monday as arranged. It looks beautiful if a little complicated, but Finlay is looking forward to his first lesson on Thursday evening.
Thank you very much for your assistance and great service.
All the best
J.S.Banchory - (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Just to confirm safe receipt of the euphonium. It looks beautiful!! My daughter will be thrilled when she gets home from school!!
L.C. Surrey (Ex demo mint condition Rosetti 4 value compensating euphonium)
Thank you so much for today - we both thought you were a great teacher. Sam would have liked to continue learning with you but it's just too far. He is upstairs playing pink panther ha ha it sounds really good !! Thanks for getting him off to such a good start.
R.E. Stockport (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Thank you for the rental year and for enabling me to play this wonderful instrument!
H.B. Reading (New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Hello Ralf, thank you for confirming safe receipt and I'm so pleased that you like the Yamaha.
You can leave the sax assembled during the day but at the end of the day I recommend removing the reed and storing it in the plastic case to keep it flat and also removing the mouthpiece from the neck cork to allow it to breath (or it will compact the cork). You can keep the rest of the sax on the stand to dry fully.
It would be great if you can come for the free one hour lesson next year too.
25 August 2017
The horn arrived safely yesterday - thanks a million for the quick despatch. The YAS-280 is absolutely fantastic and, even to my inexperienced ears, it plays and sounds far superior than the Antigua I used to have. I was struggling yesterday with high notes after not playing for over 2 months. It's already back to my normal self today, though! 😊
Just a quick question for you. When I leave the sax on the stand, can I leave the reed on or is it better to dismantle the mouthpiece?
Again, thanks a lot for the opportunity to get back to practising and for the super fast despatch, it's greatly appreciated!
Every year at the end of March, we go for a few day short break. I believe you are based in a very nice area, so we might be exploring this part of the UK next year. That would give me the opportunity to get my lesson with you 😊If that's OK then I will be in touch with you in January/February for some recommendations!
R.W. Edinburgh (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Richard, thanks very much for the very comprehensive lesson - I learnt loads!
B.H. Durham (ex rental Yamaha YAS-32 alto saxophone)
Can't thank you enough, it was such fun being able to play with dad while he was over here.
Really appreciate the hire and hope to be in touch again soon.
P.S. London (Yamaha YTS-62 02 tenor sax purchase and short term rental of ex demo Jupiter trombone)
Hi Richard, Helen and Hazel,
The soprano arrived safely this morning at 9:15. Thanks your your help. I'll have no hesitation in recommending your hire service to others in the future!
M.M. Leicester (Hired a Yamaha YTS-280 tenor sax and then used the rental paid towards the purchase of a Bauhaus curved soprano saxophone)
Many thanks for your quick response and for confirming about rental counting towards price - I had assumed it was only towards our specific rented instrument.
I'll try and confirm a time with you first thing Thursday morning next week to try the R13 prestige and Selmer Recital/Signature - likely to be midday-ish to afternoon Thursday or Friday depending on our car availability.
D.M. - Sheffield (Ex demo Buffet E13 "A" clarinet)
Thank you very much for you call earlier. I can now play my first 1 octave scale. I'm sure the excitement over playing scales won't last 😊😊😊😊
C.B. (ex rental Buffet B12 clarinet)
Yes, a really enjoyable visit. And many thanks for your time and Richards patience with my first lesson. All great fun.
Once again thanks for your help so far. I will be in touch for another lesson when I next visit the area in a couple of months time. I hope Richard doesn’t start 'running for the trees’ at the prospect.
Regards and Best Wishes,
T.S. Warrington (ex demo Yanagisawa T901 tenor saxophone)
Thank you for the great service.
D.G. Newcastle (Ex demo Yamaha YAS-480s silver plated Yamaha alto saxophone)
Thank you, yes it was a very positive buying experience that is difficult to get these days. Emily is chuffed to bits with the soprano and spent all night giving it a workout to the point where the dog was ready for leaving home.
We will pass on your details to other band and group members with a strong recommendation to visit before buying elsewhere.
D.W. Whaley Bridge (ex demo mint condition Yanagisawa S901b soprano saxophone)
The soprano arrived today and I wanted to thank you for the very friendly and excellent service that you provided.
S. R. Somerset (new Yanagisawa S902 soprano saxophone)
Dear Helen, you will be my first call should we need to upgrade.
Thank you for your fantastic service.

I am just letting you know that the saxophone I ordered arrived at precisely the stated time.
Having unpacked everything I got the immediate impression the instrument had never been used.
I shall take good care of it whilst it is in my possession. I am looking forward to making full use of it.
Thank you for your prompt service and attention/ terms and financial facilities.
A. K. Ringstead (Ex demo mint condition Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks for the email below which I will print out as proof of purchase.

Many thanks Helen for the paperwork.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of visiting you all on Monday – a potentially difficult decision was made much easier by the time and attention I received.
I expect to come back in a few months to try some mouthpieces.
Already enjoying the sax of course.
All the best,

p.s. thanks again for the coffee!
Hello Richard, Helen, Hazel
The alto was delivered about an hour ago during the 1 hour slot within which DPD had told me they would deliver. So that was good.
I’ve given the alto a run through and haven’t come across any problems yet. I do like it. Thanks for the complimentary care kit and extra Juno reed – much appreciated.
This was an incredibly easy transaction and I thank you for that.
I look forward to meeting you all when I visit you for a lesson later this year.

R.R. London (new Trevor James Signature RAW tenor saxophone)
Dear Helen, Richard and Hazel
I wish to say thanks for your help over the last few months. It has been a pleasure dealing with your company from start to finish, we will endeavour to keep the girls playing and hope their interest continues!.
I wish you all the best for continued good times.
C.B. Devizes (ex rental Bossey and Hawkes clarinet)
Could you put this on the comments section for me.
I am so pleased with my sax, Richard helped from start to finish, My playing has stepped up a grade now that I have a decent instrument. Richard helped from start to finish and this couldn't have been smoother. It is clear that I bought this of a musician who actually cares about what other musicians are getting. I will recommend this to anyone , who like me have had difficulty in finding a decent and fair hire scheme,
Once again thanks again, the sax is fantastic.
C.B. New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone
Many thanks for this. As always, a pleasure to do business with you.
S.W. - Edinburgh (new Selmer Privilege bass clarinet to low C)
Hello Richard and all the staff at U.K. Sax Hire.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your friendly and professional advice to help me choose a saxophone and for all your e mail support. I chose an Espirit Alto Saxophone and it arrived safely and well packed in time for Christmas. It was my present this year and I was so excited when I opened it on Christmas Day. The saxophone was everything you said it would be and the sax stand, neck strap and book were excellent added extras. The saxophone itself plays beautifully. I have played clarinet before but this is my first saxophone. I am more than impressed with the instrument and I am really looking forward to learning to play. I have recently recommended you to a friend who is looking to hire a sax for her son and if I need any further instruments you will be the first person I come to. I would highly recommend UK Sax Hire as the staff are wonderful and my new sax is amazing!
Thanks you all and Happy New Year!
N.S. Whitby (New Esprit alto saxophone)
The saxophone was delivered this afternoon. Delighted with product and the service.
D.H. Batley (New Esprit alto saxophone)
Hi Richard and Team
I just wanted to say thank you to you all. I really enjoyed meeting you all yesterday and the experience of hiring my Saxophone was so positive, you made me feel I can really play this instrument and with practice I'm sure I'll gain my confidence. I have wanted to play the Saxophone for so long and just the way things have worked out this year it has happened for me.
Thank you again for all of your help. Look forward to seeing you again.
K.C. Sterndale (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Just writing to confirm I have received my saxophone today - it looks pristine ! I shall be in touch to let you know how I am getting on shortly !
Thanks for how quickly and efficiently this all went through !
B. D. Faversham (New Esprit alto saxophone)
The sax arrived today and we love it.
Many thanks for all of your assistance. Can't wait to see her reaction on Christmas Day.
M.C. Lancashire (ex rental pink Alphasax)
Just to let you know the bass has arrived safe and sound and is slowly acclimitsing to the house!
Thanks again for great service, its a lovely instrument - feels much easier and responsive than mine.
R.M. ELLERKER (Ex rental Selmer Privilege low c pro wooden bass clarinet)
just to inform you: I have got the instrument and had my first lesson last Saturday. Practicing now "Mary had a little lamb" :-) using three notes - big progress!!
Thank you for arranging the delivery - was very fast and efficient,
I.F.Epsom (Ex rental Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks for all your help. Caitlin is very happy with her new clarinet!
C. G .Derby (Ex rental Buffet E13 clarinet)
The Yani 911 really is a beautiful instrument and after a very pleasant weekend with it I am in no doubt that I should purchase outright straightaway. Please will you calculate how much this will be?
The conductor of the orchestra in Inverness is very pleased with the idea of having a soprano, and has suggested that I could dep for the oboe - I can easily manage the necessary transposition using Finale Notepad, a lot easier than trying to transpose at sight.
And Richard ~ the time you spent sorting out the subtle differences between the Soprano and my Alto was invaluable. Thank you very much indeed.
R.C. Solihull (ex demo Yanagisawa S991 soprano saxophone)
Thanks for the documents.
Ellie really enjoyed the lesson with Richard on Sunday and is now successfully playing the first 3 bars of 3 blind mice, and a bit of row row your boat :-)
Thankfully we have a detached house as she was playing again between 21:00 and 22:00 last night !!
J .B. Huddersfield (ex rental Windcraft alto saxophone)
Thank you for the delivery of the Saxophone which arrived yesterday. I was very pleased with the instrument and my son was over the moon last night when I gave it to him.
He has his first lesson today, so I look forward to see his progression in the coming months.
Once again many thanks, great service and communication.
My Best Regards
D.P. Bradford (ex demo Esprit alto saxophone)
Just to let you know that the sax was delivered about 30 mins ago. It looks fine to me but I will get Amelia to check it out when home from school.
Thanks for making this so easy and I will highly recommend to the music teacher at Amelia's prep school!!
N.M. Bicester (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
I hope you are well, thanks for your email, I was only thinking the other day that I would need to contact you in the coming month. Am not sure if you would remember but the Sax was a gift last Xmas to my partner and although he has yet to fully master the art he is very attached to it, so we would like to purchase. The instalments would be helpful given the time of year and so if possible can I take the 6 month payment option. Am happy for you to continue to charge the card mentioned below.
Thanks for your help and the great service, let me know if you need any further info.
R.S. (Esprit alto saxophone).
Thanks for the documents
Yes, really enjoyed my visit and have been putting in some time since.
I have booked with a trial lesson local tutor and looking forward to making progress !
I was very impressed with your service and will certainly recommend ukSaxHire to any friends who might be inspired by my experience to take up the horn ( assuming I don't put them off in the process)!
P.B. Rochdale (New Trevor James Horn 88 alto saxophone)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending the saxophone so quickly. Grace has just come home from school and opened it and she's positively thrilled!
Thanks for sorting it all out for us. You've been very professional, friendly and helpful and I shall happily recommend your business to my other musical friends and colleagues.
K.B. Sheffield (new Yamaha YAS-480 alto saxophone hire)
Many thanks for your email and your assistance. I'll be recommending UK Sax Hire to any friends and family looking to follow in my footsteps!
J.M. (Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Thanks for this!!
It's been great dealing with you and I will definitely recommend your services.
C.D. (Alphasax hire for 12 months and then transferred to buy a new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Just to let you know the sax arrived safely last Wednesday. All i need to say is wow what a fantastic instrument, many thanks for such a good and prompt service.
All the best
D. H. Harlow (New Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Pleasure doing business with you.
M.H. (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)
Hi Richard, The oboe has arrived and I can play it!!! Absolutely delighted!! Took me a couple of minutes to get used to the reed but I managed to play it quite easily then. I think, if I can really get the hang of it, I'll end up buying this beautiful oboe. Thank you so much for making this possible.
J.A. Edinburgh (ex rental Yamaha YOB-241b oboe)
The sax arrived as planned. Really pleased, excellent instrument.
P.A. London (ex demo Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Wow! That sax is something else.
S.B. London (new Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)
Thanks for you message, and yes, we would like to buy the saxophone now. I was talking to Delyth's teacher a couple of weeks ago, I asked her what we should be looking to buy now that the rental was coming to an end, and she said 'Buy the one she's renting'! Delyth's loving the saxophone, she's now working towards Grade 3 and playing in the County Foundation orchestra, I cannot thank you enough for giving us an affordable way to get her started and decide whether the investment was the right one.
If you could confirm the online banking details I will get my husband to transfer the balance to you in the next day or so.
J.G. (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone).
Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. The saxophone is beautiful and arrived as promised on Tuesday. Samuel had his first saxophone lesson on Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed it. He was very keen to show us all he had learnt. I was wondering if it would be possible to return the book and have an additional mouthpiece/ligature/cap instead as our third accessory as I'd like to have a go too. Please advise how I should proceed.
E.B. Hinckley (Ex demo Esprit alto saxophone)
Thanks Emma, I'm so pleased that Samuel is enjoying the sax. Please return it by recorded delivery in a hard envelope so that it does not get crumpled with your name inside (I receive a lot of anonymous accessories!) I will then post the mouthpiece / ligature and cap to you for the cost of the postage.
Happy playing! Richard 07484 885 619
Many thanks for the e-mail about John’s YAS-280.
It is absolutely no problem about referring my students to you – you are quite simply the best at doing what you do in the UK – that’s why I always recommend you, I have to believe in other people as it’s my reputation as well as yours that I have to make sure is 100% solid – I hope the feeling is mutual!
All the best and keep up the great work!
