Special conditions for the return of Harmonicas

Harmonicas are subject to wear and tear, the stresses of playing and may eventually loose their pitch or go out of tune.

The longevity of a harmonica and it's playing response is often effected by a player's style and playing technique. Some players manage to 'blow out' a harmonica within weeks, while some can enjoy years of trouble free playing. Therefore, it is impossible to put a minimum playing life on a harmonica, although Honkin’ Harmonica Shop would consider the matter if it was agreed the harmonica had failed prematurely. 

Harmonicas are guaranteed to be in tune and free from manufacturing defects at the time of purchase.

Once received, harmonicas cannot be returned once they have been played unless there is a tuning problem, or they suffer from a manufacturing defect. If this is the case they should be returned to Manufacturer direct after contacting us, this is how our suppliers have instructed us to deal with returns. It is their decision to repair or replace.

Special conditions for the return of personalised or made to order goods

Any item that is personalised (eg, engraved harmonica) or made to order (t-shirt) is refundable only to the value of the standard item. The cost of the additional work made by external craftsman is non-refundable.

Additional Shipping Insurance

Most orders are sent standard delivery. In some instances, usually when an order is of reasonable value and is being shipped internationally, additional insured and tracked postage service will be reccommended. The customer is at liberty to refuse the extra cover but should this be the case Honkin Hrmonica Shop will not be held responsibel for goods lost or damadged in transit.
