Exceptions: If you are at an APO address, there is no automated way for us to provide your tracking number. If you order a small item such as a shoulder rest or mute, it will be sent via USPS, with which there is no tracking. Orders are typically received within 5 business days or less.
UPS will usually leave your package on your doorstep unless your place of residence is an apartment complex. If you prefer, we can arrange for your order to be kept at the UPS facility for pickup. Simply let us know your preference in the "special delivery" comment box of your online order.
If you live in an area where you believe your instrument may be stolen from your door step, please request the "signature required" service as we cannot be responsible for stolen merchandise. We send most violin orders out without a required signature; however, we usually require a signature for violins valued at $250.00 or more, especially for instruments sent to urban areas well-known for theft.
If you send us an email or call us before 12:00 noon Pacific Standard Time, on the day of your purchase, we are able to change or cancel your order.

If your instrument is stolen, it is not our responsibility, so if you believe that your package may be stolen from your delivery address, please request the "signature required" service so UPS does not leave your package unattended.
