In most cases, when returning a product, you can request an identical replacement item, or request a refund. When procedures are followed, there are no restocking fees. • How do I return a product? A return authorization number is required to return a product. Please remember: you can return many products for any reason. Being honest about the reason will just help us process your exchange, replacement, or refund more quickly. We will respond to your request swiftly. You will receive a return authorization number, instructions for sending your product back, and an address for the return. • Products that match the following categories can only be returned for replacement if they are defective or damaged in transit, or only for exchange or refund if they are still sealed (with shrinkwrap and barcode still affixed). •• Copyrighted materials cannot be returned once opened due to copyright law. This includes books, videotapes, DVDs, sample libraries, style disks, sound expansion boards, and software (which may also include software bundled with hardware). •• Downloadable products, such as sheet music and sample libraries, cannot be returned. •• Blank media cannot be returned once opened due to the possibility they have been used. This includes cassettes, open reel tape, ADAT, DAT, CD, DVD, removable memory cards, and hard drives. •• Disposable products cannot be returned once opened.

Gift certificates cannot be returned. •• Avid products that include Pro Tools software cannot be returned once the manufacturer's seal has been broken.

If there are any questions as to whether an item is included in the list of exceptions before you buy, please contact us. • As musicians, we understand that having a reliable return policy is integral to a good purchasing experience. However, we reserve the right to limit return privileges to those who take advantage of our policy with excessive or dubious returns. These decisions are at the sole discretion of the returns department. • Who pays original and return shipping? If the return is needed as a result of a damaged or defective product, or from our mistake, we will pay the shipping charges -- both to have your item sent back to us, and to send you a replacement item. Often we issue a factory-fresh product in advance (pending an approval) to get you playing music as soon as possible -- because we're musicians too. These exceptions are at the sole discretion of zZounds Music and its returns department. • If you return a product for any reason in exchange for a different product, we pay the shipping charges on the product we ship to you in exchange for the product you return, but you are responsible for the return shipping on the product you send back, and we do not credit any original shipping charges toward the exchange. • In the case of an outright return for refund, we refund the full purchase price of the product, but you are responsible for return shipping on the product you are returning and we do not credit the original shipping charges toward the exchange. • When do we charge restocking fees? Rarely. We can only accept items that are returned without signs of wear and tear and with all of the original contents and packaging. Wear and tear refers to any damage that was not present when you received your merchandise -- rack mounting damage, scratches, dents, etc. Contents consists of any included parts and accessories, as well as the warranty card and manual without user's notes or markings. Packaging includes all inner and outer packaging, complete with the original barcode affixed. • Items not returned in the condition described here may be subject to restocking fees (minimum 10% of the purchase price, as determined by our cost of replacing the missing items including a processing fee for this labor-intensive process) or refusal of the return. Larger items and items that we ship directly from our vendors can be subject to a minimum 30% restocking fee. This fee may apply if you refuse delivery or as a result of delivery exceptions, as well as from a typical return. These conditions apply to all returns regardless of the reason for the return. A restocking fee will be charged for any defective item that is returned in damaged condition. • How long does it take to receive a refund? Once the warehouse receives the returned merchandise, a refund is typically processed within 2-4 business days (Monday through Friday). Processing time may vary depending on daily return volume. When your return has been processed, you will receive a message from Reverb.com. • The zZounds Reverb Team would always prefer to have our communication handled directly through the message portal - right here on Reverb! However, if you feel that you must speak to somebody on the phone, please message us with your phone number and one of our team members will contact you ASAP!
