IMPORTANT!

WE DO NOT POST OUT INSTRUMENTS!

We know that a lot of shops and sites do, but would you not rather play and see it first? If it needs tweaking, new strings or adjustment it can done whilst you wait. Best of all you don’t waste your hard earned money on something which you haven’t seen! We have also found out the hard way that 99% of couriers are reluctant to cover musical instruments under their insurance policies.
