All backorders remain on order unless cancelled. You may also request to be placed on “no backorder” status. Please contact your sales representative to make this kind of arrangement.
Do you have dealer exclusive territories?
As a general rule, no. If con icts arise, The Music Link will consider, on a case-by-case basis, factors such as customer loyalty and business volume in order to nd the most reasonable solution for The Music Link and its customers.
What is your warranty policy?
The warranty for Music Link products begins when the item is sold to an end-user. At the store’s discretion, the retailer may choose to act in service to the end-user as a liaison when contacting The Music Link. In either case an email should be sent to email@example.com, or info@ the relevant brand name (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc). The warranty process begins when an email including: the item # of the product, the issue needing warranty service, and an image or copy of the original purchase receipt, is sent to one of the above addresses. A customer service representative from The Music Link will then respond and process all necessary information.
Warranty periods from the time of purchase are listed on p. 214. All freight charges incurred when sending a warrantied item to The Music Link are the responsibility of the end user. Items must be safely packed in double box packaging and The Music Link recommends confirming shipping insurance for the value of the instrument with the end user’s chosen shipping company. Upon arrival, the item will be inspected to determine the defect and to con rm the product falls under our warranty policy guidelines. The Music Link will provide repair or replacement with an identical or similar item that meets warranty requirements. See p. 214 or the “Warranty” section of any of The Music Link’s brand websites for more information.
What is your refund policy?
If a situation occurs where the customer is given a refund, The Music Link provides in house credit only. The Music Link does not provide refunds in the form of cash credits or charges back to a credit card.
