Over the years BlackCat Music Shop has remained the same, and I mean that in a very good way! It has a very friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and offers a great selection of brands that other local shops don't carry. No matter how big or how small the purchase is, Adam has always been extremely helpful and has been such a great guy to deal with. I've been to other local music shops, and the experience just isn't the same. I highly recommend this store!
Only been there once but was treated like a long time customer. That means a lot to me, had what I was looking for and a lot I'd like to have. I will be back. Thanks!
Incredible service, beyond better than best. Wow. If only all business' could operate in such a genuine and friendly way. The prices are also very, very competitive. Not enough good things can be said about BlackCat Music Shop!!!
Adam is first class and an absolute joy to deal with. Please, if you have any hesitation in buying from Black Cat Music Shop, don't worry! This was my first time buying from Reverb to begin with and I am extremely impressed. Adam made the whole experience very easy. The communication was stellar and I had the sense he was very willing to put the customer first, in all aspects of the deal. I will be using him again at some point!
What a terrific seller! Top-notch and 100% trustworthy. Consider yourself lucky if you get the opportunity to deal with Adam. You won't regret it!

Great seller! Professional and friendly with good communication. Would work with Black Cat anytime! Thanks again! Very pleased!!!
One of the coolest music shops I've been in. I find instruments there that are not found in other places. Cool instruments...like that you would find in a super cool music shop. Check it out!
The best seller I’ve ever had the pleasure to strike a deal with! Sold me an outstanding guitar at a great price! I can’t express how happy I am with their service. Highly recommend them.
Adam was extremely helpful and responsive in my time crunch situation. Very pleasant to work with, in fact, a joy!
BlackCat is a gem among gems to discover in Berkeley Springs, WVA. It is a must see place - whether you are a musician, or music lover out to appreciate the local talent, or just want to check out the unique items in the shop or the friendly staff. BlackCat is also a proud sponsor of the the local school of rock events. We love playing live music there and just stopping in to check in with our friends.
CONSIDERING BLACKCAT? READ THIS! I purchased a keyboard they had listed as excellent that truly deserved a mint rating. Their packaging was better than professional in terms of securing the instrument. Shipping exceed my expectations! I ordered on a Saturday afternoon, so I did not expect them to ship it until Monday morning. They had it out that day! Don't count on Guitar Center to do that. All said, you can buy with confidence from BlackCat Music Shop.
Wow. What a great experience. I have bought gear before but never have I had great communication and customer service like this! Any questions I had were answered right away, the bass came in great shape and is amazing. BlackCat deserves 10 stars instead of 5! Thank you BlackCat Music!!
Adam, I personally want to thank you for opening up your establishment in Berkeley Springs. You have built a cornerstone where young and old alike can learn, listen, hangout and purchase all things music.
Going to BlackCat is always a good experience. Adam and Janet are always helpful and knowledgable. They can get you what you need even if you don't know yet what that that is, lol!
BlackCat was so easy to work with, and responsive to my inquiries and emails. Fast shipping too! Adam is a great guy to work with and answered all my questions.
I HIGHLY recommend Adam and BlackCat.
I really appreciate what you do for the local music scene Adam.. Your shop has easily become my favorite local music establishment! You are always so nice, so helpful with prices, and you really care so much it generally makes the whole experience great!.. No place I'd rather see my money going for musical purposes!
Really admire what you have going on, it's great to have a place for all the musicians from around the area to meet up. It blows me away how much talent is around the area. Last night I had a blast and I'm looking forward to doing it again, hope you have us back.

Best Music Shop in the World! You won't find a more knowledgeable, kind guy than shop owner, Adam Kary. He supports all of the local artists and if you talk to any of them, they will tell you they're his number one fans. His selection of guitars, instruments, speakers, etc. are incredible and the shop is always buzzing with all kinds of musicians just "hanging out". His School of Rock guys do a tremendous job and Jonathan and Adam have become mentors to all of them. The shop is truly a gem in the small town of Berkeley Springs! - Francis Peet
I visited BlackCat Music Shop for the first time recently and was greeted by Adam Kary who was very personable, knowledgable and "nice". My Ovation Acoustic/Electric guitar needed repair. Adam suggested Daniel Zarcone who is BlackCat’s guitar technician. I left my guitar in the capable hands of BlackCat Music Shop and within a few days, Daniel called to explain to me the problem he found. He explained in layman's terms how he was going to make the repair. He also made suggestions of some tweeking he could do to the guitar that would make playing much easier on my fingers. He applied no pressure in regard to me having him do the extra adjustments, totally my choice - I am so glad I had him make the adjustment he had suggested, first quality work. He throughly checked the guitar to make sure there were no other problems. He was super nice on the phone and you just knew that you knew, this guy knows what he's talking about. Thank you Adam and Daniel!
Just received my Ohana Zebrawood Ukulele and it's just a BEAUTIFUL piece of work! The texture, the size, the detail, EVERYTHING is just perfect! Better in person that's for sure! The photos provided online made this Ukulele look beautiful already; but the photos do not do this Unique Zebrewood pattern justice!!! Thanks Adam for all your help! You were truly AMAZING!!! Very attentive and very patient and kind.
Wow. What a great experience. I have bought items on Reverb before but never have I had great communication and customer service like this. Any questions I had were answered right away. The bass came in great shape and is amazing. Black cat music deserves 10 stars instead of 5. Thank you Black Cat Music!!!!!
I highly recommend BlackCat Music Shop for your musical needs. I was surprised at the selection of quality instruments and supplies they also keep on hand. Stop by and check them out, you will not be disappointed.
