How Do We Update Our Reviews?

You might find that some of our reviews and recommendations are infrequently updated. Predominantly that is because very little has changed within that instrument group. For example, electric guitar models do not change very often, so until something better comes along, there’s no need to update our reviews.

However, other categories, such as headphones, change often. We update these reviews and recommendations at least once a year.

We are passionate about helping you find the perfect instrument. We aim to make the sometimes confusing and hard buying decision much easier. If you have any feedback or questions, please contact us via or contact us page, Facebook, or over Twitter.
