From manufacturing to delivery, we do everything we can to ensure you are happy with your purchase, but we know that sometimes a product may not fulfill a buyer's expectations. We’ve made our return policy as easy as possible. Please see the return agreement below.
Strings, string winders, picks, cleaning cloths, straps, books, software, and items considered as personal items by Kalena Instruments will not be accepted for returns. Other items such as ukuleles, cases, amps, etc. are all returnable for a full refund when factory defects are significantly present. All other returns will be charged a 30% restocking fee. Refunds are issued on Kalena Gift Cards for store credit.
- To complete your return/exchange, we require a receipt or proof of purchase. Damaged items will not qualify for return unless damaged in shipping and photo evidence of damage (including box) is provided.
Within 14 Days - You must return your product within 14 days of the product being purchased in-store or received by shipment. The amount of the original purchase (minus shipping charges, rental fees, restocking and cleaning fees) even if shipping wasn't billed to the customer) will be reimbursed to the buyer upon a passed inspection of returned goods or a new item will be sent as a replacement. Only items with factory defects will be accepted for a full refund.
All returned product(s) must be returned with all of their original packaging, and in like-new condition. Kalena Instruments may reject the returned product if there is damage to the product and/or product packaging.
If a product is deemed unfit for return, Kalena Instruments will notify the customer that the return has been rejected and no refund will be issued to the customer. The customer can choose one of the following options. The product will be shipped back to the customer at a shipping cost of $30-$100; or the product will be recycled. If you do not select one of the above options within 14 days of Kalena Instruments informing you that your return has been rejected, the product will be recycled.
Due to the nature of physical gift cards we are unable to offer any returns/refunds on gift card orders.
As long as your return adheres to the requirements described above, follow these steps to return your product:
