RMS clarinet trials are 7 days from the day you receive the instruments. Please schedule your trial period in consideration of your rehearsal and/or clarinet lesson schedule. In order to provide the best service to all of our customers, we maintain a strict trial policy of 7 days. For each day instruments are kept after the ending trial date, we charge a $25 rental fee. (Packages must be postmarked no later than the 8th day of the trial.)
Before shipping clarinets out on trial, we require a deposit of the price of the most expensive instrument, plus the cost of shipping/insurance. RMS accepts major credit cards and personal checks as forms of payment. (When making a purchase, Georgia residents are also required to pay 7% tax on the price of the instrument.)
RMS charges a restocking fee of $25 per clarinet if no purchase is made ($60 for bass clarinets). We invest time and skill to set up each instrument so that they play their best and so the customer can accurately judge them. We charge this fee to maintain the quality of the instruments and to keep them in top condition for future trials.
*All confirmed sales are final, so make your selection carefully.
*RMS is pleased to offer financing on new instruments through First Mutual Finance. More information and an online application can be found here.*
Please contact us after you decide on an instrument so that we can provide you with a return shipping label. We offer free return shipping if you make a purchase (We send you the UPS label).
If you do not make a purchase, we can still send you a UPS return label at our discounted rate. You may also choose to ship the package yourself, as long as you insure the package for the full value.
RMS requires shipment using either UPS or Fedex as carriers. If you want to take advantage of paying our lower shipping rate, then you must use UPS and contact us for a special label prior to shipping the clarinets back. Otherwise, you are free to use Fedex and cover the insurance/shipping costs yourself.
