Terms and conditions of sale

Orders, payments and deadlines

Any order will be considered as confirmed upon receipt of a deposit of 50% of the total amount of the instrument. This reservation deposit is recoverable at 25% of the total amount in case of withdrawal by the buyer.

The remaining 50% must be paid upon delivery of the instrument.

As an indication, the manufacturing and delivery times of my instruments are generally between 1 to 6 weeks. A more precise estimate will be defined at the time of the order.

The different methods of payment are described here

Customs taxes

If you live outside the European Union, customs taxes may be added to the receipt of your instrument. These taxes are variable. They depend on the carrier and the laws of your country.

I pay at each transaction taxes in France of about 20% for the development of France and French social rights. That’s why the external taxes are to be paid by the buyer because they participate to the economy of his country.

My prices do not include customs taxes. Thank you for your understanding

SHIPPING for SBD instruments

Shipping Worldwide is possible

Every instruments are sent in very (very) good conditions in hard box with protections.

International Shipping conditions

For an available instrument, delay is more than one week.
BUT customs authorities can stop package for unknown reason.
I do my best to reduce delay !

France Shipping conditions

For an available instrument, delay is 72h max.

Estimated shipping costs

Basically, I count the price of transport + 50 euros for my preparation and the material.

To estimate the price of a delivery, it depends on the transport companies, the destination, the weight, the price of your instrument for 100% loss coverage … The price changes a lot.

In general, a basic Sylent-oud costing 1100 euros with a 100% loss coverage for France costs 60 euros, 170 euros for Los Angeles USA, 250 euros for Saudi Arabia …

Please tell me your city and country to estimate the global price.
