Details of Sale * Please Read

All items are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Prospective buyer notifies me of their intention to purchase an item by e-mail, I will send a return mail letting them know whether they were first in line or not. If the buyer is first in line and from that point, the prospective buyer will deposit the indicated cost in Japanese yen into my PayPal account along with shipping and handling charges. Shipping is typically 3000 yen to the U.S. and handling is 1000 yen. Once the money has cleared my PayPal account, the shakuhachi will be shipped to the buyer. If a one week audition is required, please notify me before purchase, and PLEASE ask any questions before a purchase is made. All sales are final unless the item has obviously been damaged in transit.

Items damaged in transit: Although the condition of a shakuhachi will be sent in exactly the same condition as is explained on it's web page and with every precaution taken to ensure safe delivery, there are times that the unavoidable happens in transit. Fortunately they have been very few. In such a case, I will accept the instrument back with a full refund of the selling price. However, the buyer must assume return shipping costs.

I am also happy to take special shipping instructions. For example, some may wish to have their instrument insured. I normally ship via EMS. Insurance can be had for any package over a proclaimed value of 30,000 yen for the value indicated. This being said, it is advised that buyers understand their own country's customs charges. Adding extra value to an item for insurance may result in extra customs charges for which the buyer will be responsible.
