The plane back is gonna be a bit heavier! Sax, Woodwind and Brass the musician's one stop shop with the Lot!" - John Kellaway
"We went to New York showroom in Manhattan last month and tried to see whether we could choose A Festival clarinet. I was so disappointed to see the showroom was so empty with only some saxophones, couples of trumpets and several others and they only had only ONE clarinet in stock. I can’t even choose… Coming back to Sax and Woodwind, they have a whole wall of the clarinet display! A whole series of Buffet clarinets! And saxophones, trumpets, bass… if you’ve been to New York showroom, you’ll understand why I was so excited! Good on you Sax and Woodwind!" - JM
"I had the absolute pleasure of purchasing my Besson Prestige Baritone this weekend from Rob. I had a great selection of Besson's to play, all of my queries answered, blowing through different mouth pieces to make sure i was 100% happy with my choice. I would recommend the trip to Sydney to see Rob and the team at Sax and Woodwind, you will be well looked after. Thanks again!" - BR
"I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated the service I received for this order. My Bam Bb case arrived this morning - only a day and a half after I ordered it. Your very helpful staff and prompt service is a credit to your business. I'll definitely recommend you to others I know in the market for instrument-related products. AD" ....Thanks for the kind words - SW&B
"You guys must have the largest range of trumpets in Australia! I shop nowhere else and the new Brass Vault is absolutely awesome" Paul Panichi Thanks Paul! SW&B
"I can recommend without reservation the wonderful work done by Sax&Woodwind...and Brass. They have an experienced and dedicated staff who are able to cater for the needs of all students and teachers. It is quite clear to me that they really care about what they do, it is a lot more than just selling product. Their knowledge and experience mean that the customer gets a real service, quite rare, sadly in today's times. I have known Rob Murphy for many years and am thoroughly impressed with the way he has developed this business here in Sydney. It is absolutely first class. As I said, I can give them the highest recommendation and I look forward to my continued association with them, and hope to return to Australia soon as a performer and clinician, and will be happy to work closely with them." Steven Mead ....Wow-thanks Steve! - SW&B

"I refer my students to Sax & Woodwind…and Brass because I trust Rob and his team. They really know their stuff when it comes to woodwind and brass. But more than this, they care about making certain that each customer is totally satisfied." Andy Firth .....Thanks Andy! - SW&B
"I have been sending my students to you for around 10 years and I have total confidence in your reliability and professionalism - not once have you let any of my students down. The range at Sax and Woodwind is second to none and the staff at your shop are always knowledgeable and helpful." Chris Wallace ...thank you Chris! - SW&B
I came in with my daughter because she needed to upgrade her saxophone. I just wanted to let you know that we were delighted with your range of instruments and the level of service that was provided. Tanya was very patient with us whilst we tried numerous horns (and mouthpieces). We did not feel rushed or pressured and walked out with a Selmer Reference 54 Alto that is striking in sound and appearance. Keep up the good work. GN
