You will notice an increase in prices. Most of my prices have been in effect since 2002. Regretfully, It has become necessary to raise them. A modest part of the increase reflect higher labor and utility costs. Scarcity of materials used in construction of quality instruments dictates the larger part of the increase. Boxwood, quality leather and horn tips for mouthpieces are all imported. They have become difficult and costly to obtain, necessitating an increase in prices.
A deposit of 25% of the purchase price is due at the time of order. People from outside the United States should make all payments in US dollars using either a bank draft , electronic wire transfer, or Pay Pal ©.
Prices are subject to change without notice, and the balance based on the price at the time of delivery will be requested before completion of the instrument. Airmail postage, insurance, and handling charges will be included in the bill. If an order is cancelled after work has begun, the full deposit will be returned, but not until the completion and sale of the instrument at full price.
An instrument may be returned undamaged within 10 days of receipt, and a full refund (less postage, insurance, and handling) will be made.
