Internet Sales: Shipping and Tax Information

  • Timeliness: We try to promptly remove SOLD items from this list, and mark instruments "ON HOLD", but the only way to obtain the up to the minute status of an instrument is to CALL. In addition, we normally only answer emails sporadically and after store hours... please call if you would like immediate response to your inquiry.
  • Duty: Made in North America and Shipped to North America: no duty
    Instruments made outside North America are subject to duty if shipped from Canada to the U.S.
  • Sales Tax: No Sales Tax is charged if an instrument is shipped out of Canada.
    Only GST (6%) is charged if an instrument is shipped out of Ontario and within Canada.
    PST (8%) and GST (5%) are charged for shipments within Ontario.
  • Packaging: We may charge up to $50.00 dollars "packing and shipping" for some instruments/amplifiers depending on the amount of effort needed to ensure the item is well pacakged. For instruments in stock without a case, the purchase of a hardshell case is highly recommended.
  • Inspection: We do not normally offer an inspection period for internet sales. All Sales/Shipments are considered final unless otherwise negotiated in advance.
  • Payment: The best way to pay for your purchase is by a Money Order or Certified Cheque payable in Canadian or U.S. Funds. We can also accept a 'Paypal' payment. Alternatively, you can arrange a 'wire transfer' into our account (call/email for details). We will hold your instrument while your payment is 'in transit'.
