Please note: Some vintage or antique instruments are sold as collectors items and should not necessarily be expected to function as a modern instrument. Please ask if unsure. In the unlikely event of damage in transit, claims should be made within 48hrs of receipt and claims for non-delivery within 28 days (see returns page) otherwise insurance may have expired. International buyers who opt not to pay for insurance as quoted buy at their own risk. International buyers are also responsible for their own import and customs duties. Items return to us because of non delivery due to the recipient not being available will incurr a handling fee.
