What our customers say…

As a person who lives in Mildura in Regional Victoria I walked into Cranbourne Music to buy a guitar case for my old acoustic guitar which has been passed down for generations. I received prompt customer service at the Elizabeth Street store from the sales assistant. She was very helpful and knew the exact hard cover case I would need for my guitar, even though I did not have the guitar with me on this trip. The sales assistant was very friendly and helpful and if I am back in Melbourne again I will definitely be visiting this store again.

I was greeted by the boss on the way in and given a brief history of the company after mentioning I’d been to one in the city. I was able to browse at my own leisure and the amount of stock they carried and the quality was just sensational. The staff were all very well informed and had a wealth of product knowledge and had no problems with me trying out some gear and making recommendations based on said gear and preferences. I bought some strings and I noticed they did a better price than what was on the pack as well without having to ask. 10/10 would visit again.

I’ve been a long time customer of Cranbourne Music and I’ll tell you why... they love music and are as passionate about making music as I am and are always willing to have a dialogue with you about your needs. Both Declan at the front counter & Aaron in Hi-tech at Lynbrook have been nothing but friendly and helpful. They don’t mind having a joke and making you feel relaxed in the store and really do go the extra mile when called upon...In response to some of the 1 star reviews I’ve seen here, I have an idea on this breed of customer from 30+ years in customer service in my ‘day job’, trust me I’ve seen it all. All I’ll say is this, you get what you give. For anyone to go into someone’s place of work with a chip on the shoulder and a ‘customer is always right’ attitude of entitlement, you are not negotiating a deal, you’re making demands, which is no way to get what you ‘need’ (as opposed to what you think you want...) just something for you to keep in mind as you go about your day �Thanks for the great service over the years guys (and girls), looking forward to many more making music with you!Peace - Leigh

I've been with these guys ever since I was a kid buying my guitars through the Cranbourne based store. Now they're in Lynbrook with a tricked out store and so many friendly staff who know their stuff. Spoke to Dominic and Christian today who offered amazing customer service and a passion for music that I don't receive elsewhere. I've trusted these guys with my guitars for over 10 years now and will continue doing so. Love your work! ���

I have always found shopping with Cranbourne Music an excellent experience, in particular the city store. My most recent purchase was a Fender Elite Jazz IV bass - incredible instrument, by the way - which I finally paid off yesterday. The entire experience was so easy & stress-free. I have always found the staff to be friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable & keen to help. Whenever I walk into the amazing new store in Elizabeth St I somehow feel like I'm at home. Cheers, guys, for everything.

Very nice service! Ive bought three fabulous guitars from Cranbourne Music. One of the three is Maton: EM100C, Series No. 2954 1GH. I got my Messiah for very reasonable price! I only paid 3200 bucks for a 4000 bucks guitar! Also, Sherry, the cutest girl who is one of the receptionists helps me a lot. She introduced all the guitars and amplifiers in details, when I am interested in one of the goods.

I've been a Cranbourne customer for over 10 years. I know the guys in store have the right ear to help me get the sound I want. I've bought pick ups, strings, pick guards, amps, guitars, leads and mics. Software and interfaces. The staff are great help, and I've never had a bad experience. I will keep coming back, best store in Melbourne hands down.

It's great to see an Australian music store that still has some Vibe!! Loved the music they were playing and the staff gave me some really helpful advice on getting my pedal chain sounding right! All the staff have been particularly helpful but in particular Tim and Nick were especially helpful in the purchase of my Fender American Custom Strat!5 stars �

Went to Lynbrook Have been playing for 10 yearsDefinitely the best store I have ever been to The owner is immensely versed in not only the musicality and tone of the instruments but the construction and engineering behind themIt makes it so easy to make an informed decision on a purchase You will always know exactly what you want because you are making an informed decision The bad reviews here are simply inaccurate in my experience They go above and beyond Maybe they are eccentric but they a good people and you will do well whenever you walk into this store

Finally bought that digital piano which lovely Kate demonstrated for us some time ago. After doing some research on price, Kate beat the best price we could find online, then assisted us with appropriate music books to increase our skill level. While we've been shopping at Cranbourne Music for many years and always been satisfied customers, this experience has been further reinforced - we'd be reluctant to go anywhere else for our music needs. Thank you Kate!

Have alway found the staff polite, attentive & helpful.Not so keen on large display room type environments particularly guitars mounted on high. Too much division between client & merchandise.Hence the score of 4 as opposed to 5.But then again I don't run a successful music retail business, so what do I know.Overall everything is well displayed in sight.What they don't have they're prepared to get where possible.

I went in today and found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. The guys were great at including my daughter which makes a huge difference with a family. The only reason i didnt put a 5 is because they didnt have everything i was after at the time, however they were helpful in finding alternatives. Ill be back for sure.

The new store is excellently situated in their new location. Inside area is large enough to accommodate all the musical gears that they have got to offer. And if you're a serious buyer you can really get a very good deal from any of the friendly staff up to the big boss...who??? give them a visit one of these days and you'll know what and who am I talking about...

We have visited three weeks in a row with my11yo daughter Madison Lisa-Ann, after saving her money earned by busking, the wonderful and very knowledgable Caity helped Madison to purchase a new Ukulele at a great price. We went back the next week to order a hard case and then the following week for more bits as she earned more money. Thank you for helping to keep music fun and exciting for her. 🙂 Madison can't wait for the play like a girl nights.
