As any musician knows, buying an instrument can be a game of luck. Finding a music store that offers you value and quality is one thing. But being sure that the store will still be around in the future, to honour any problems with your instrument, is quite another. To help remedy this uncertainty, the Trusted Music Store (TMS) scheme has been launched. The scheme not only ensures value and quality, but most of all guaranteed peace of mind. At Markson Pianos, we are very proud to be recognised as a Trusted Music Store by the Music Industries Association (MIA).
What is the Trusted Music Store (TMS) scheme?
The TMS scheme has been launched by the Music Industries Association (MIA) to help ensure that musicians are able to shop with confidence and security. Music stores included in the scheme will now display the TMS logo, and there is a store locator to enable musicians to find their closest participating store.
Guaranteeing Great Value and Service
For a store to be recognised as a TMS, it must meet the scheme’s criteria on both value and quality of service. Each store will not only offer a great selection of instruments, but also provide expert advice, support and guidance for musicians, as well as music tutoring services, and finance and rental options.
Giving You Piece of Mind
Most importantly, the scheme will also provide musicians with guaranteed peace in mind. The unique 24-month warranty service is honoured by the entire nationwide scheme and means your warranty will be guaranteed for 24 months should the TMS you bought your instrument from cease to trade. This allows you to buy with confidence, knowing that your warranty will always be honoured.
Look out for the TMS logo when you purchase your next musical instrument. Showcasing the very best music stores in the UK, the TMS scheme guarantees that you will always be able to buy with confidence.
