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 its playing response is often effected by a players 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 Minstrels Music 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 after contacting Minstrels Music, within fourteen days*, either by e-mail or letter, for repair, replacement or refund.  * A longer time period in certain cases will be considered.
