Before returning any item you must contact us. Returns using incorrectly marked customs forms may not be accepted.
Mouthpiece returns and trials
Returns on played but undamaged production model mouthpieces are generally accepted within one week of customer receipt of the mouthpiece, subject to a discretionary cleaning and restocking fee (see below). Please use a mouthpiece patch to avoid bite marks. NB: metal ligatures can scratch mouthpieces, ideally use a fabric ligature or place some protective material, e.g. a piece of card or electrical tape, between ligature and mouthpiece.
If you buy two or more mouthpieces for comparison with the intention to keep one and return the others, you can take advantage of our two mouthpiece discount, which will apply even if you return one.
Our mouthpieces may have slight inconsistencies in external appearance due to the manual machining and hand finishing process. You may see slight scratching or other marks on the table or inside the chamber, this is not a defect. Unlike mass produced mouthpieces, ours are not necessarily cosmetically finished, they are finished to the extent that the mouthpiece plays at its best. Further polishing after this point may be detrimental to the sound and response, so we do not take returns due to these very slight scratches caused by the machining process.
We try to keep these to an absolute minimum and will not charge for mint condition returns. Depending on any polishing or plating due to ligature damage can be from £5 for refurbishing of mint condition mouthpieces up to £25 for Onyxite or £80 for metal in some cases if replating or refinishing is required due to damage. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Ten year mouthpiece guarantee
If the product is found to be faulty due to either materials or workmanship it may be returned for a full refund. Note that bite marks are not included and are counted as were and tear. We advise the use of a mouthpiece patch.
