Our Store Policies

We work with musicians of all types, from students to professional performers to casual players. We love helping people find the right instrument and the accessories they need to bring that instrument to life. We are committed to customer service, and operate with flexible store policies and services.

Here, you’ll find information about payment options, instrument appraisals, selling your used instruments, and our customer privacy policy.

Payment Options

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express as well as personal and certified checks. Please allow 1-2 weeks (shipping delay) for processing personal checks. We also offer a financing program for accessories or instrument purchases through First Mutual. Please call us at 800-926-5587 for more information regarding the First Mutual Financing option.

For international orders (excluding Canada), we can no longer accept credit cards as a method of payment. International instrument and bocal orders must be paid in full by wire transfer in advance of shipping the instrument, any wire transfer fees are the responsibility of the customer. All international sales are final (call or e-mail for details).
