There are a few Terms and Conditions relating to our Returns process. We want to make the process as simple and easy as possible for our customers whilst safeguarding the service we provide.

  • If your items are unwanted, you must notify us of your intention to return within 30 days from receipt of your goods (not the invoice date).
  • If your goods are faulty or damaged you have 30 days to notify us from receipt of your goods.
  • Original packaging must be retained and you should ensure that the goods are returned to us packaged to the same standard as they were originally delivered.
  • If we arrange a collection it is important that someone is available to hand over the goods at the mutually agreed date/time. If no-one is at the collection address when the driver arrives we will still be charged for the visit and unfortunately any subsequent visits to collect will be chargeable.
  • For unwanted items: Whilst we appreciate that you will want to inspect/try the goods they must be returned to us in an ‘as new’ condition. We reserve the right to charge a re-stocking fee should goods be returned with any damage, cosmetic or otherwise, this will be deducted from your refund. In cases of extreme damage your return may be refused.

The majority of problems can be sorted quickly/easily providing you notify support of your intention to visit and the nature of the issue in advance. Please note, engraving your instrument will void all warranties.
