I contacted getinthemix by phone twice and both times they were very polite and helpful. Good customer service ?
I recently used Get in the Mix to purchase an Akai MPC One. I'm really happy with my purchase which arrived in a reasonable timescale (C-19 times considered) and in perfect condition. The (small amount of) discussion I had with the staff was great and inspired confidence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Get in the Mix and will be very happy to deal with them again in the future.
