Bad Experience – I went in to buy some strings and as others here have said, I was immediately greeted with a "what do you need" attitude, in fact I was taken back because I politely said hello and complimented him on his store.
I told him I didn't know there was a store here and how cool I thought it was, he bluntly let me know that it had been there for years and in so many words berated me for not knowing that. Then he again bluntly asked me what I wanted.
I hate to leave anyone a bad review but this guy was clearly rude and for no apparent reason. I will never go there again, Hillsboro has some stores with much politer owners.
Flying Pig Stinks – My son and I went in to inquire about lessons for my son. I wanted to suprise my husband when he returned from his deployment. Most of the time I was there Ed was clearly annoyed and troubled by having to talk to me.
He did comment that he was in the military and asked me what branch my husband was in. I said that he was in the National Guard. His comment to me was "I thought you meant he was in a real Branch of the Military".
Excuse me..... My husband has been deployed for 2 years of the 8 years we have been married don't tell me he is not in a 'Real' Branch of the Military. Ed you are rude and I hope this rating influences many people not to do business with you!
Great Place for Lessons – We recently signed our 11 year old daughter up for lessons with Flying Pig. She's been having a great time and is enjoying every minute. The owner advised us to rent an instrument to start with instead of buying to see if she enjoys it, and we were really comfortable with his low key, practical approach. He does not seem to be interested in pushing us to spend as much money as we can, which is something pretty rare these days. He spends a lot of time both in and out of lessons to answer questions and give advice. It is the best experience we've had at a music store. This store is great for families with kids--they love the name and the cool pig in the window!
Don't go there – The owner/main employee of this store acted like he resented me for even stepping into his store, and he verbally abused me when I asked him why he seemed to have a problem with my being there. He spouted some nonsense like, "Are you the guy we had problems with the last time?" It would be funny if this person weren't so menacing. Avoid this store ... there are so many better places to shop for musical instruments.
Terrible Service – I am a student at the local university and I play guitar. I went in to flying pig music to see if they carried any flamenco guitars. The gentlemen working (who i'm guessing was the owner) was extremely rude when I asked him if he carried any of these ,he replied very rudely " yea I have tons of guitars in the back, but people just come in here to waste time so I keep them there". After saying this he proceeded to ignore me and when I asked him a question "well what brands or models do you sell here?" , he replied by not answering and looking at me in a frustrated manner. So at this point I probably should have left but there was an item which I did still need and they had. However when asked to buy it he refused to sell it to me. If you're looking to be abused and purchase refusals, this is the place. I have heard of resturants with gimmicks like rude service but not in a guitar shop. If you're in the area just turn around and head home don't even bother going in not worth the effort.
