Domestic & International Shipping Charges
for all Instruments and Accessories
    Shipping costs are increasingly expensive. In an attempt to be fair to those of you who live closer by, I've changed the way I determine some shipping charges. Most charges will be determined by the zone you live in, the actual or dimensional weight of the package and insurance. These numbers also will give you an approximate idea of how many days your shipment will take.

International Shipments

I am able to ship things overseas but you should be aware that it is somewhat expensive. The cost of shipping depends on the instrument and can range from $40 to $550. A zither would cost around $40 to ship while a bowed psaltery runs about $75. I'd be glad to give you a more accurate quote on the shipping. I generally ship via Air Parcel Post which is the least expensive. This method takes around a week to get there although they have size restrictions so for larger instruments I am forced to use UPS or FedEx which is faster but more expensive. Paying for instruments can be done using paypal or credit cards by clicking the above pay button. Your order must be paid for before shipment. If you need help on how best to pay for or ship an instrument contact me. I'm gaining experience as I am selling more instruments overseas.
