We work hard to ensure all orders are carefully inspected and packaged to minimise the risk of damage in transit, but on rare occasions things can still go wrong.  

On those rare occasions, if you find the goods you ordered are damaged on arrival, we’ve got you covered with our Free Transit Protection.  

Simply contact us via phone or email and we will work with you to determine the best possible solution for you which may include:

  • Replacement of the damaged product (if a replacement is available)
  • Return it for a free repair (under manufacturer's warranty or by our experienced technicians)
  • An agreed discount or a full refund.  

Please note:

If you re-direct your shipment to use Australia’ Post’s ‘Safe Drop’ service, or any courier’s ‘Authority to Leave' you are solely reliable for the goods from that point on, and are no longer Transit Covered. We require signature on delivery for all our shipments to ensure the goods actually get delivered to you.


Express orders must be placed before 11am to be dispatched on the same business day (Monday-Friday). If you need something urgently for an important gig or special event please contact us before placing your order so we can confirm your delivery timeframe is achievable and ensure that your order is fast-tracked.

Express Shipping is available on most orders, provided your item is in stock and express shipping service is available to your post code.  To get a quote simply complete our postage calculator on the Shopping Cart page once you have added a product to your cart.

Delivery times for express orders are stated below.  Please note that Express shipping is not available to some remote areas in Australia and not available for some larger items such as drum kits, PA systems and larger digital pianos.

Orders sent EXPRESS will usually be delivered within 1-3 business days for most east coast metro areas and 3-7 days for other areas.  For some remote areas such as remote WA, North / Central QLD, Regional SA or Regional TAS Express shipping delivery times may be the same as standard shipping which may be up to 14 days.  


To ensure your order reaches you fast and hassle free provide a valid delivery address where someone will be home to sign for it as couriers typically don’t leave goods unattended.  

We recommend having orders sent to a business address where there will always be someone there to sign for deliveries during business hours.  If we ship to a business address then please make sure you give us the full business name. 

If we ship to your home address and nobody is there to sign for it, you may to have pay a redelivery fee to the courier.  And if the courier delivery fails a second time, it may get sent back to us and we will charge you a redelivery fee to send it again (even if it was shipped free the first time).  

We can deliver items that aren't too big to PO Boxes and Parcel Collect Agents.  If the product you order is is too big, we will contact you for a street address instead.



We ship most orders for In Stock items within 1 - 2 business days (Monday - Friday) of receiving your order.  

Orders with Standard Shipping are usually delivered within 2 - 5 business days, or longer for remote locations.

We are unable to guarantee exact delivery times as we are not in control of the delivery process once your order leaves our warehouse.

Please take note of the stock availability status displayed on the product page for the items you order.

When more than one item is ordered, items may not arrive simultaneously. There will be no additional freight charge to you in this instance unless the items are shipped separately at your request.
