Policies at SoundCheck Music Entertainment

Service as It Should Be

In today’s online shopping market, we believe that honesty is the best policy. That’s why we designed the most generous, fair and transparent store policy for our customers. Read the following sections below to find out more about how we ship or exchange products, or about how we secure your personal data. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

We truly appreciate your business, and we want you to be 100% happy with your purchase. However, we know that one of the drawbacks of internet shopping is that you can't try something before you buy it. That's where our money-back guarantee comes in. If you are not completely satisfied with an item, for any reason, call us at 1-800-837-7857. We will do whatever it takes to put things right. 

Please do not accept any shipment if the packaging appears damaged in any way. Check your order on receipt to be sure everything is included and in proper working order. Hidden damage and missing items should be reported within 48 hours of receipt.


Shipping Costs on Returns

Except for damaged and defective items, you must pay any return shipping and, if we sent you your purchase with Free Shipping (free to you but not to us), we will deduct the outbound shipping cost from your refund as follows:

  • Free Ground Shipping – we will deduct $10 from your refund

  • Free 2nd Day Air Shipping – we will deduct $50 from your refund

  • Free Truck Freight (on Oversized Items) – we will deduct $75 from your refund


Damaged and Defective Items

For obvious damage, just refuse the shipment and we’ll make it right. For hidden damage or defects, call our Customer Service at 1-800-837-7857 and we’ll send you a shipping label so you can return the item at our expense.

Conditions of Returns


Returns must be in original packaging, complete with blank warranty cards, owner’s manual, all included parts and accessories, and no sign of wear or abuse. Otherwise, you may be subject to a restocking fee, repair charge, or disqualification. Items must include all original packing materials and must be double boxed if we sent them double boxed.
