Trial period / return policy

We at Matthew's Music hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase. However, should you wish to return a product to us, we will be happy to refund the cost of the item when returned to us within 14 days of delivery to you. We ask you to pay the return shipping only. Before returning any products we advise you to contact us as we may be able to resolve without the need to return the item.

If you wish to exchange a bought article? No problem, if the article has remained undamaged, you can send the article back to us within 14 days. All we ask is for you to pay the return shipping. If you choose to exchange the product for a product with a different price, we will settle the difference with you.


Damage during delivery

It is our responsibility to get your order to you in perfect condition. We check the instruments we send out very carefully and pack them to be able to undergo even a quite long voyage. We have had very few problems with damage at the other end. Should something occur in transit, we will solve it either by having it repaired locally and refunding the costs or simply replacing the instrument. Your risk until you have played the instrument and adjudge it to be perfect is none. 



During the 30 years of our existence, we have selected a range of high quality products in which we have full confidence. We are an authorized dealer of all the instruments and articles we sell and all instruments come with the full manufacturer's warranty. We extend, as well, a one-year guarantee on the instruments we sell.

In practice what this means is that within one year of purchase if you have a problem with an instrument which we send to you, we can either:

  • Have the problem rectified at a qualified repair facility near you and we pick up the bill.
  • Repair the instrument in our own workshop and reimburse you for all shipping costs.
  • Replace the instrument - no cost to you.
