SoundPure.com and its affiliates attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, SoundPure.com does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by SoundPure.com itself is not as described, your remedy is to return it in unused condition for a refund. SoundPure.com makes every effort to accurately represent items by photograph, but you agree that color discrepancies are typical across various computer viewing screens and printers, and that such color discrepancies are not grounds for a refund, other than those allowed by the official SoundPure.com return policy as it pertains to non-defective items.
Unless otherwise clearly noted on the specific items product page, all items listed at SoundPure.com are BRAND NEW and carry the FULL MANUFACTURER WARRANTY, which varies completely from manufacturer to manufacturer, and even from product to product. All warranty claims are between you the purchaser, and the original manufacturer of the good. Items received DOA (dead on arrival), that fail, or that are otherwise determined defective within the first thirty (30) days, may alternatively be handled through the below RETURN POLICY. Except as otherwise provided by the manufacturer warranty agreement, you are responsible for any shipping costs to and from the manufacturer for warranty repairs.
All returns and cancellations are subject to this entire agreement including the below return policy and its provisions concerning special order items.
Sound Pure requires "cleared" prepayment before any goods will leave the facility, and reserves the right to cancel any order, and return payment at any time and for any reason. Cleared prepayment includes payment by all check methods including cashier's check, money orders, personal checks, as well as bank wires, or credit card prepayment that have gone through any security steps deemed necessary by SoundPure.com to prevent and deter fraud.
SoundPure.com is required to collect sales tax only for items delivered to North Carolina addresses. If your delivery address is inside the state of North Carolina, or the item is picked up at our North Carolina address, we are required by law to charge Sales Tax. If we ship to your location outside of the state of North Carolina, we will not collect any sales tax from you.
SoundPure.com makes no claims with regard to whether you may be liable for Sales Tax in the State or Country where the product is shipped, or that you later bring it, only that SoundPure.com will NOT collect Sales Tax if shipping to a location outside of North Carolina.
For North Carolina delivery locations only, Sales Tax will be added to your product total at the time of checkout.
You represent and warrant that if you are purchasing something from us that (1) any credit information you supply is true and complete, (2) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (3) you will pay the charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including any applicable taxes and shipping charges. You also agree that you will be responsible for any legal and collection fees associated with any failure to pay or fraudulent representations.
It is our recommendation that you DO NOT SIGN FOR A PACKAGE if you suspect that the contents have sustained damage, simply REFUSE these items, or require that the driver allow you to inspect the contents and approve their condition, prior to signing for any package. You can alternatively have the shipping agent provide you with a release, in writing, describing the damage that will allow you to inspect the items after the delivery has been made. While signing for a package does not necessarily eliminate your ability to make an insurance claim, it could limit the availability of such a claim, as all items are subject to the shipping contract provided by the carrier that you choose. You must RETAIN ALL ORIGINAL SHIPPING CONTAINERS AND PACKING MATERIALS, or your insurance claim will be REFUSED. You must inspect packages received immediately upon receipt, and report any damage to both SoundPure.com and the shipping carrier immediately. Any delays in reporting damage may result in refusal of your insurance claim by the shipping carrier.
All items purchased from SoundPure.com are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon SoundPure.com's relinquishment of the goods to the carrier of choice. Any claim against the carrier is the sole responsibility of you, the purchaser. SoundPure.com requires and places on your behalf, ample insurance for all items that it ships. If an item is lost or damaged by the carrier while under the carrier's control, Soundpure.com will make every reasonable effort on your behalf for a speedy recovery of insurance proceeds, lost items, or product replacement if so desired by you. While this policy explains SoundPure.com's efforts on your behalf, the shipping insurance claim process and any other aspect of the shipping contract is governed by the shipping contract with the individual carrier, and not by SoundPure.com.
Should a replacement be desired by you while awaiting the results of an insurance claim with the shipping carrier, and a replacement is available, the CUSTOMER WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF ANY ADVANCE REPLACEMENT prior to receipt of any insurance proceeds from the shipping carrier. Should SoundPure.com handle an insurance claim on behalf of you, or should the carrier send the insurance proceeds to SoundPure.com, SoundPure.com will promptly refund the money for the original purchase price, once it successfully resolves an insurance claim and receives the full insurance amount from the insurance adjustment.
The following return policy shall apply to all items purchased from SoundPure.com or by telephone or email through direct contact with a Sound Pure representative.
If you object to any aspect of this return policy, or would like to request a special deviation from the policy, you must handle such request directly with a Sound Pure representative, and you MUST HAVE SPECIFIC WRITTEN APPROVAL (email is acceptable) OF ANY DEVIATION FROM THIS POLICY BY AN AGENT OF SOUNDPURE.COM BEFORE MAKING THE PURCHASE, otherwise you are bound by this return policy as it is stated here. By request, special return procedures may be granted such as "demo" period or "approval" period, but these are deviations from the normal return policy that must be granted by a SoundPure.com agent, in writing, prior to any purchase.
No refunds will be allowed for items that have been damaged, marked (superficial or otherwise), misused, are missing documentation or packaging, have been altered, modified, or tampered with, or in any other way differ from a product in mint, as-new condition.
Because SoundPure.com is unable to sell returned merchandise as brand new, ALL NON-DEFECTIVE RETURNS ARE SUBJECT TO A 15% RESTOCKING FEE. All items returned for ANY reason, even if defective, must be returned in perfect as-new condition, with all original packaging, books, materials, etc. intact, and within 14 days of receipt of the product. Items returned must be given a return authorization (RA) number by a SoundPure.com employee, and must be amply packed and fully insured. You will be responsible for the shipping charges both ways, even if item was originally purchased under a free shipping promotion, and you will be refunded the remaining 85% balance after SoundPure.com has inspected the item and it meets the above conditions.
SoundPure.com will waive the restocking fee, but not the shipping charges, if the item is a regularly stocked item, and you are willing to place the complete credit towards another purchase at SoundPure.com. The condition of the returned item must also meet the above condition to be accepted, and if you are uncertain as to whether or not an item is regularly stocked at SoundPure.com it is your responsibility to verify such information prior to placing an order.
Any "special order" item will be clearly indicated by a SoundPure.com employee at the time of order or shall be clearly noted "Special Order" on the SoundPure.com website. This section only applies to such "Special Order" items. Items labeled "Special Order" are not normally stocked by Sound Pure, and are therefore NOT RETURNABLE FOR ANY REASON, and once an order is placed these SPECIAL ORDER ITEMS ARE NOT CANCELLABLE. If a "Special Order" item is received by the customer with a material defect, Sound Pure will work with the client to resolve the issue with the manufacturer, and will repair or replace the item, depending on the manufacturer's decision. To the extent that the manufacturer will issue a refund to Sound Pure for the defective special-ordered product, this refund option will be made available to the customer.
Any "defective" item is fully refundable including any associated shipping costs. SoundPure.com may require that the item be shipped directly to the manufacturer, or back to SoundPure.com. Contact SoundPure.com immediately regarding any potential defect you find. You must receive an RA (Return Authorization) for any item that is returned to SoundPure.com. A full-refund or product-replacement will be issued only after the item has been verified defective. In order to qualify for a refund or replacement, the defective item must be returned to SoundPure.com in otherwise perfect mint, as-new condition, with all original packaging, books, materials, etc. intact, and within 30 days of receipt of the product. If a replacement is available, the replacement will be shipped at no additional cost to the customer once the defective item has been returned to SoundPure.com or the product manufacturer and is verified to be in the above stated condition. Alternatively, an advance replacement may be shipped to the customer if one is available, however, the CUSTOMER WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PREPAYMENT OF ANY ADVANCE REPLACEMENT, and the refund will be issued for the defective product when it is returned to SoundPure.com or the product manufacturer and verified to be in the above stated condition.
Despite our best efforts to maintain accurate pricing on our website, some items on our website may be incorrectly priced, and therefore we cannot confirm the price of an item until we receive your order. In some cases, we will not be aware of a change in price because we were not informed by the manufacturer who made such a price change, and therefore only become aware of such change when we try to place an order on a customer's behalf using the previous and incorrect pricing provided to us by the manufacturer. In some cases pricing may have simply been entered into the site or computed in error.
By visiting this site you understand and agree that prices are subject to change, and that you will not hold SoundPure.com liable for incorrect pricing on the SoundPure.com website. While unlikely, you also agree that even after you place an order with the website, if the price is incorrect, SoundPure.com reserves the right to decline such an order, and refund any payment received. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price at the time you place an order on our website, we will contact you for your instructions and confirmation prior to shipping an item.
While SoundPure.com reserves the right to cancel an order at any time due to a pricing error, you will never be charged a price higher than the quoted price on our website at the time of your checkout, without your verbal or written authorization.
Sound Pure makes every effort to ensure up to date stock information, and delivery information. However, mistakes can be made, and items may sell out prior to the website updating. At times, an item can sell out sometimes even after an item has been added to your cart. If the stock situation or delivery situation differs materially from that which is stated on the website, SoundPure.com will notify the customer promptly and provide them the opportunity to cancel the order. SoundPure.com relies on the information provided to it from its various suppliers regarding item availability, and backorder time estimates and makes no guarantee or warranty about the stock status of any item represented on SoundPure.com.

Sound Pure's Free, 3-Year Warranty applies to all brand new products that are that are marked with the 3-year warranty on the products page, at the time of purchase. The warranty covers BOTH PARTS AND LABOR! The Sound Pure Warranty Coverage extends for three years from the time of purchase. We are here to help you above-and-beyond the call-of-duty, when you encounter problems, and this warranty makes Sound Pure's legendary, industry-leading service and support that much more "official!"
Our warranty does not in any way negatively affect your manufacturer warranty for the product that you purchase. Sound Pure's warranty serves as a serious, parallel warranty, that will extend beyond the manufacturer warranty, should it end prior to three years time. To be eligible for Sound Pure's Free 3-Year Warranty, you must first have registered your product with the manufacturer. While some manufacturer warranties are transferable to other owners, Sound Pure's Free 3-Year Warranty is only available to the original purchaser from Sound Pure (non-transferable).
Unlike some of our competition that attempt to do "in house" technical repairs on high-end products (including electronics), Sound Pure strongly believes that the manufacturers of the products that we carry are best equipped to deal with problems as they arise. The original product manufacturer remains Sound Pure's "first choice" for warranty and out-of-warranty repairs, in general, although other repair facilities may be determined more practical, and the ultimate warranty provider shall remain in Sound Pure's sole discretion. Notwithstanding any manufacturer warranty to the contrary, you will be responsible for all shipping costs to and from the manufacturer, or any other location determined by Sound Pure, where the repairs will be made. Should the repair be deemed "not covered" (for example if it is determined that water damage was the result of the problems you encountered) you will be responsible for any diagnostic labor costs charged by the repair facility.
Nothing here prevents you from dealing with the manufacturer directly in seeking their warranty coverage (or any non-covered repair), and this shall not negatively impact your warranty coverage under Sound Pure's warranty program.
When you encounter a warranty issue that you want covered under Sound Pure's Free, 3-Year Warranty, simply contact Sound Pure directly to initiate the warranty repair under this program. Do not send the product to the manufacturer, or any other repair destination, until you have been instructed to do so by Sound Pure. You will be provided specific and explicit instructions to ensure your claim and repair is handled as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Sound Pure will do our best to get your gear returned to you as quickly as possibly, however, we will not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages including but not limited to lost wages, lost studio time, lost work, lost data, nor any emotional, or other ancillary issues created when a piece of equipment encounters issues, or during the time it is sent for repair under this warranty.
This Warranty only applies to items sold in brand new condition. It does not apply to products that are marked or listed as used, demo, open-box, consignment, floor-model, etc. unless a specific written exception is provided by a Sound Pure employee prior to the time of purchase. Purchases made from Sound Pure LLC on affiliate sites such as Amazon, eBay, Indoorstorm.com are not eligible for the warranty. Only purchases of new products made on SoundPure.com, or by calling a Sound Pure representative, are eligible for the warranty.
Sound Pure's Warranty does NOT provide "no fault" coverage. We will always do our best to help you regardless of your circumstances, however, this coverage only applies to product issues resulting from normal operations in normal and accepted operating conditions. Products modified in any way are not covered by this warranty.
Issues resulting from any sort of abuse, damage, act of god, water or liquid-spill damage, or failure to maintain the equipment in normal operating conditions are not covered under this warranty. Certain items such as acoustic instruments, and acoustic guitars in particular, should be stored in humidity-controlled environments, and never exposed to extremes of heat, moisture, or dryness. This warranty does not cover products that have been modified, in any way. Cosmetic issues are not covered under this warranty, and include things such as (but not limited by) subjective tonal-related complaints, finish-related issues including cosmetic signs of age, sun-fading, peeling of labels/silk-screening/tolex/grill-cloth. "Setup" related issues on instruments are not covered, such as instrument neck adjustments (seasonal or otherwise), and fret wear.
Certain items are not covered under this warranty. This includes drums and related hardware are covered for manufacturing defects, but not for abuse, wear and tear, nor damage. Cymbals are not covered under this warranty. Software of any kind, and in any form, is not covered. Hard drives, and any data recovery, and any data loss resulting from faulty hard drives is not a service covered by the warranty. Surge protectors and power conditioners are covered under this warranty should they become defective, but this warranty does not cover the cost, repair, or replacement due to damage associated with equipment being connected to a defective surge protector or power conditioner covered under this warranty. "Consumable" items are not covered under this warranty, whether they be a consumable device, component, accessory, or part. An inconclusive list of consumable items not covered include bulbs, vacuum tubes, batteries, strings, drum heads, tape heads; other items that simply "wear out" whether due to abuse or just heavy regular use rather than manufacturing defect, such as deterioration or failure of plugs/jacks/pots, and threaded components (such as threaded parts on stands and mounts), and other components with known limited life-cycles; analog vu meters, motorized components such as flying faders, speaker cones/drivers, spring-loaded reverb tanks, microphone ribbon-elements; any other items that are specially excluded or limited in duration (or coverage) within the manufacturer within the manufacturer's own warranty program, such as items that are specifically limited to only 90-day coverage in an otherwise 1-year manufacturer warranty. While Sound Pure cannot cover "consumable" items or accidental damage, we will still go out of our way to make sure you are back up and running at the least possible cost, and as quickly as possible.
Sound Pure wishes to offer you the best support, coverage, and overall buying experience of any company in the industry, which is why this warranty has been created. Because of the nature of this special warranty, we do not want to fall victim of abusive or dishonest behavior, therefore Sound Pure reserves the right to refuse or reject products presented for this warranty program at our discretion, and reserves the right to modify (at any time) the conditions governing this warranty. To the same degree, remember Sound Pure will always do our best to help you out, even if you encounter issues outside of this three-year warranty coverage, even after three years! Know you are in the best possible hands when you do business with Sound Pure.
The Sound Pure warranty is effective beginning on November 30, 2012. Products purchased prior to November 30, 2012 are not officially eligible, however, Sound Pure will always do our best to help our customers when they encounter problems, even outside of the coverage period.
