Warranties & Repairs

Manufacturer Warranties: Many products, especially electronics, come with a manufacturer’s warranty covering defects and malfunctions. The length and terms vary depending on brand and model. Be sure to check all materials in your packaging for warranty information or talk to a sales rep for more details on the warranty period for any product.

Repair Services: In many cases, warranty issues may be addressed by our in-house repair staff instead of requiring a full return and exchange. Our knowledgeable technicians have years of experience with all types of musical equipment. If you notice any problems with functionality, bring the item into the store and we’ll take a look!

If the issue is not resolvable onsite and the product is still under manufacturer warranty, we will help facilitate sending the unit out for covered repair or replacement.

For out-of-warranty repair quotes, talk to a store manager.

Returns Due to Defect/Damage after Manufacturer Warranty: If an item stops functioning correctly or is damaged after the original manufacturer warranty has expired, Music Go Round staff will evaluate the item and provide an out-of-warranty repair quote. No functionality issues will be eligible for standard return/exchange if not covered under manufacturer warranty.

However, if the issue presents a health/safety concern (i.e. electric shock) or if damage occurred at the fault of Music Go Round (i.e. item was damaged in transit to customer or during an on-site repair), exceptions may be made to the standard policy. Talk to a store manager for more details.

Special Orders

Custom/Specially Ordered Items: For any custom builds or special factory orders, there may be different policies regarding returns, repairs, and warranty coverage. Talk to a sales representative before placing your custom order to understand any unique considerations that may impact exchanges or refunds later on. We want to be sure you fully know the ins and outs of your purchase before finalizing.

Shipping: Standard return policy applies only for items originally purchased in-store. For online orders and items shipped from other locations, additional shipping fees and courier services may impact overall process. Check with the supervising location for specific return guidelines.
