  1. What is Woodwind and Brasswind's return policy?

    New Gear: If you're not satisfied, neither are we. If for any reason you're not completely satisfied with your purchase of a new item, simply return it in its original condition within 45 days of purchase (see exceptions below) and we'll give you a full refund. It's that simple.

    Returned items must be in original, brand-new condition, showing no signs of wear or use such as belt-buckle or pick scratches, scuffs, dings or scrapes on the instrument or collateral materials. Items must also include all original packaging, manuals, warrantees and accessories or your return may be subject to a return handling charge.

    Your refund will be promptly processed upon successful evaluation of your returned item from our trained category professionals. Refunds are made for product value only, excluding shipping and handling charges. If you received Free Shipping on your order, the value of the uncharged shipping cost will be deducted from your refund.

    Open Box: If for any reason you're not completely satisfied with your purchase of a open box item, simply return it in its original condition within 30 days of shipment and we'll give you a full refund. Items not returned in original condition are subject to a return handling charge. Select open box items are not returnable.

    International Shipments: Our return policies for new and open box gear also apply to international shipments. Please see any additional policies and information shipped with your package for more details.
