Instruments purchased from our website may be eligible for a return or exchange. The customer must contact Flute Specialists within 7 days of the original invoice date to initiate the process. All returns are subject to inspection for damage to the instrument and all related accessories. In the event of a valid return the customer is responsible for all shipping costs, transaction fees and restocking fees.
