www.sheetmusicplus.com reliability

February 21, 2005 at 07:02 AM · Has anyone ever used www.sheetmusicplus.com to buy some music?

I usually go to the music store, but lately, I have a hard time securing a ride. Thus, I'm asked to order over the net...

I've never done so before, so...I'd be happy for any critique of sheetmuicplus or other recommendations of good sheet music sites?

Th freight costs even to overseas destinations are very low and the music comes very well packaged in a very stiff envelope. That said, the orders do sometimes take a while to arrive, so you might need to think quite a way "ahead" of what you will be needing. For example, an airmail order of mine, from clicking the mouse to actually receiving it was a couple of months.

The only other problem I have had is ordering music that they can't obtain. It takes a few weeks for them to actually send you an email to say they cannot get it.

But all things considered, I am pretty happy with them and it is refreshing to deal with a company that charges a realistic (actual) shipping rate.

February 21, 2005 at 02:01 PM · I have ordered about eight items and never had a problem. They are reliable and deliver quickly.

February 21, 2005 at 02:46 PM · I've ordered one item. No problem with product or shipping.

February 21, 2005 at 04:14 PM · Same here. They are nice and quick.

February 21, 2005 at 03:59 PM · Same here. If you live close to them, even the budget shipping gets to you in first-class time, (like the next day or two). I did notice that they'll put something on backorder, and then later, weeks later you might get an e-mail saying they've cancelled the order because they could not get the title.

Their gift certificates work great too for Christmas presents to teachers, and others. E-mail option is great.

February 21, 2005 at 09:19 PM · I order from there all the time and have never had a problem, and it ships quickly, too, without damage.

February 21, 2005 at 11:10 PM · 100% satisfaction so far...

I used it to purchase the Bach Sonatas and Partitas. The scores are plain and make no suggestions for bowing or dynamics but you can preview items before you purchase them. Just a thought ;)

February 22, 2005 at 06:10 AM · I downloaded the Bach S&Ps from www.virtualsheetmusic.com, and I didn't pay a cent for them. :-)

February 22, 2005 at 02:04 PM · Werner Icking Musical Archive also allows you to download, among others, the Bach S&Ps for free.
