About

Askheide.co.za is an independent online store selling a variety of original music CD’s and DVD’s, both locally available and imported, within the borders of South Africa, at the lowest possible price.

Askheide.co.za offers customers the opportunity to own music that is not otherwise available in South Africa, by locating and importing products where necessary.

The new generation salespeople in music shops don’t have a clue what classical music is really about, so they cannot assist a customer looking for it. Music shops therefore no longer stock the items, because it doesn’t get sold. I have over 39 years of first-hand experience in the music industry, with an in-depth knowledge of especially Classical Music, and I’ve assisted many a customer in their purchases of quality music.

I personally have a private collection of ±2000 audio CD’s, of which ±1500 is Classical music. The remainder of my collection consists of light music, which broadened my knowledge of MOR, Country, Instrumental, Gospel, Soundtracks, and music from other cultures such as German. I have also been able to assist people on ethnic level in suggesting music such as soul and jazz, to which satisfied customers returned to me later on, expressing their gratitude for my suggestions, because they really enjoyed their products.

Askheide.co.za offers an effortless online shopping experience from within the comfort of a customer’s own home. I am truly committed to providing top quality, personal service to every customer, to fulfil their musical need.

CERTIFICATE OF GOOD STANDING

To Whom it may Concern.

I, AMV le Grange, confirm herewith that I am dealing with Me. H Marais for more than a decade. Since most of my orders were not available in South Africa, it had to be imported from Europe. Me. Marais has always walked the ‘extra mile’ for me to make sure that my orders were obtained.

I have also never received a ‘wrong’ order during all these years. There were never unnecessary delays and my orders were always delivered in good time.

Me. Marais has an extensive knowledge of music and the workings of electronic systems.
Her motto is to be professional in her working environment and in her dealings with her clients.

My orders were always well packaged and were received in good condition.

I strongly recommend her admittance to her own website.

Kort getuigskrif

Heide,
Sy is ‘n persoon wat haar musiek baie goed ken. As jy iets wil weet van ‘n opname
hetsy cd of dvd sal sy altyd die beste wat beskikbaar is en ook die nuutste wat op die rakke is vir jou gee. As ‘n komposisie nie bekend klink nie, gaan sy uit haar pad om meer inligting daaroor te kry via die internet of by Mark van Classic FM. ‘n Mens kan nie help om eers vir haar te vra voordat jy iets graag wil hê nie. Sy het baie komposisies vir my in die hande gekry nadat dit oor die radio gespeel is, wat ek regtig gedink het onverkrygbaar is.

Haar vriendelike en beleefde houding maak dat ‘n, mens keer op keer terugkeer na haar toe.

Sy ken ook haar musiekgeskiedenis baie goed en sal vir jou uitstekende inligting verskaf as jy ‘n cd of dvd aankoop.

Al bly sy nou in De Aar, sorg sy nog steeds dat ek die musiek wat ek wil aankoop vir my kry en hou my ook op die hoogte van nuwe vrystellings.

Sy is ‘n behulpsame mens en jy sal ver gaan soek om haar gelyke in die klassieke musiek wêreld te kry.

Sy is vir my ‘n bron van onuitputlike kennis en ek waardeer haar daarvoor.

Beethovengroete

I have known Heide for many years since the time that she was working for the music industry. I quickly learnt that she is extremely knowledgeable regarding any music that I may require, especially classical music, the music as well as the performers old and recent.

She would go to great length to assist a client, even dropped off music at my house that I badly wanted. I still remember how much trouble she took in finding me Beethoven’s Quintet for Piano and Wood Winds, Opus 16.

But she also knows lighter music and artists, like Rod McKuen, and knows exactly what is still on the market and what will be available soon.

I am delighted that I may make use of her services again even though she now stays far away, and I know that this website is going to be a winner in many ways..
