I’m a bit wary about buying online, how do I know I can trust this site?
We are a family run ‘bricks and mortar’ store that has been trading from one large store in the town centre of Ipswich in Suffolk for over 35 years. Our website is extremely safe to order from and includes the very latest high quality and up-to-date security. Payments through the Music World website are taken via Global Iris which is HSBC’s online payment processing system. Payments are secured with SSL encryption technology.
We don’t just shift boxes out of a warehouse! We are musicians ourselves who take great personal pride in delivering the best service we can! We carefully choose the items we stock and check everything thoroughly before dispatch to make sure it meets our high standards!
I want an item that is not on your website – can you get it for me?
Yes! if we deal with the supplier of your product, we can get it for you! We deal with the majority of major brands in the music industry and can usually order anything, just contact us to find out!
Do items bought from Music World come with a warranty?
All new items come with a 12 month warranty against manufacturer defects. Some manufacturers offer extended warranties on their products and details will be included with the product. Second hand and B-stock items come with a 3 month parts & labour warranty.
Does Music World arrange shipping and cover shipping costs for returns, exchanges or repairs?
We will cover return shipping charges only if a product develops a fault within its warranty period. If you need to return an item to us for repair outside of its warranty, you may be liable for shipping costs.
Do you price match if I have seen something else cheaper elsewhere?
We will do our best to price match anything! We pride ourselves on being competitively priced and are constantly checking prices for you! Just drop us an e-mail or give us a call if you want to ask about anything in particular.
I would like to sell some musical gear I don’t use anymore, do you buy items or part exchange?
If you are looking to sell instruments or any other musical equipment please give us a call, email or visit the shop and we will be happy to take a look! We may also be able to offer part exchange on your items!
