Shipping and Pricing Information

All pricing on our website is in Canadian funds. Canada/USA customers may use PayPal, Visa or MasterCard. For international purchases, we will only accept PayPal and only from a verified address.

Canada/Expedited Shipping: We ship via CanPar, Canada Post or UPS depending on the most cost-effective and expedited method. Most Canadian orders over $199.00 receive free shipping. We reserve the right to charge shipping costs on heavy or large items such as amplifiers, guitars, and will contact you regarding these situations.

USA, International Shipping: Shipping charges are calculated as a percentage of your purchase. We only want to charge what your order costs us to ship so if the checkout calculates a shipping charge which is too high we will refund the difference. In cases where shipping charged is not enough to cover the actual cost of shipping, we may need to contact you to collect the additional shipping cost. Please contact us if you would like a quote.

Sales Taxes: GST (5%) will be added on all Canadian orders. PST+GST (12%) will be added to B.C. purchases (books are PST exempt but the 5% GST is applicable). There is no tax on the USA or International orders.

Return Policy

We have a 10-day return policy for items purchased in-store and a 15-day return policy on items purchased online or by phone. We must be contacted for a return authorization before returning any item. Items must be returned in new condition in original packaging. 

Sale or Clearance items are FINAL SALE and are not returnable unless defective.
We reserve the right to determine if a returned item is defective and will be returned if not.

All NEW items returned (with authorization) must be in BRAND NEW condition with zero signs of wear or use and must be returned in the original packaging with ALL materials (warranty cards, plastic, pouches, manuals etc.) If the item is received in subpar condition a 25% restocking fee will be charged.
