Purchasing something online can be daunting - especially when it comes to instruments or mouthpieces you haven't had the chance to try in person.

That is why we offer 6 DAY TRIALS on a purchase-and-return basis on all items over $100.00 (except care products, pads and pad sets, and FluterScooter Bags).

Due to import/export regulations, we can unfortunately only offer returns on items sold to customers inside the United States. We also cannot offer returns on customized items such as instruments with pad upgrades or specialized set ups.



The item can be returned within a 6 day window after receipt. Once the item is back with us, we will issue the refund for your item. Our restocking fees vary depending on the product, but we always try to keep them low. Before you purchase, check out the restocking fees for the item you are interested in below and don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.

Keep one and return for free: We waive the restocking fee on returned items when more than one item was purchased, as long as one or more item(s) of equal or higher value is kept.

The maximum number of instruments that can be purchased on trial at one time is four (4). Only two (2) of which can be the same model (Eb, Bb and A clarinets of the same model are exempt. Getting two sets of Uebel Superiors, or a Bb, A, and Eb Uebel Superior for example is of course possible.)


Return shipping is the buyer's responsibility. A refund for the full amount of the transaction, minus shipping and restocking fees, if applicable, can only be made if all items reach MB's facilities in their original condition.

Shipping damages incurred on the way from our facilities to the buyer are our responsibility. Visibly heavily damaged packages, should not be accepted by the buyer. Any shipping damages must be documented and reported to us within the first 24 hours upon receipt the of the package. Shipping damages incurred on the way from the buyer to our facility are the buyers responsibility. In such a case, we, too, will provide documentation of damage within the first 24 hours upon receipt of the returned goods. We therefore highly recommend INSURED return shipping.

Like mentioned above in the general terms, return shipping is the buyer's responsibility. Shipping expensive and delicate items like musical instruments can be daunting, so we put together some information to help guide you through the process.
