We do not incorporate an amazon.com business model regarding shipping as we are small company and cannot offer free shipping therefore shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer/purchaser.

Our shipping cost is calculated by size/weight for the carrier, our packaging materials, and customs paperwork which requires a trip to the post office for us, Classic Amplification does not charge a handling fee or profit on bloated shipping charges.



All repairs must have an RRN number.
(Return for Repair Number)

Our electronics are built with highest quality craftsmanship and materials and are designed to give years of great sound and reliable operation. In the unlikely event that your Classic Amplification product needs service work we will repair or replace, at our discretion, any defective workmanship, materials, or parts, on all Classic Amplification electronics items warranted for the original purchaser.

Repairs on items for customers who did not purchase from Classic Amplification (non-original purchasers) will not be covered under our Limited Lifetime Warrany but we may offer repair services at regular shop rates at our own discretion.

Before sending in a product for repair, contact us so we can issue you an RRN number for the service request. Warranty does not cover shipping costs on repairs. Please allow for 4 weeks for warranty service. Items sent for repairs without a RRN will not be serviced with the single exception of customers having made prior arrangements for service.


Return For Refund

Products can be returned for refund within 15 days of taking delivery, after 15 days products may only be returned for repair service.

Refunds are limited to the price of the product minus a $25 re-stock fee, this re-stocking fee exists because as we are not a merchandise retailer and have no path to sell or otherwise liquidate used gear, and returned gear cannot be re-sold as new, so we are left with used gear to sell at a loss so we have established this very small re-stocking fee to help offset return losses.

All returns must have a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. The RMA number can be obtained by contacting Classic Amplification within the 15 day return period. Goods returned without an RMA will not be accepted for refund unless other arrangements have been made. When an RMA number is issued the item to be returned must be shipped within the 15 day return period. If you are purchasing a product or service from us as a gift for another, please contact us prior to placing your order so we can arrange a special warranty extension which would effectively start at the time the gift is given.


Products returned for refund must be in un-altered and un-blemished condition with all pieces and accessories included as were shipped initially. Opening or dismantling the product in any way (*) specifically but not limited to opening the enclosure, shell, chassis, covers of our Effects and Instrument Pickup products absolutely voids our Return For Refund policy and no refund will be issued in which case the customer will be responsible for return shipping.

Upon receipt of a returned item, we will inspect the returned item and notify you of the inspection result and your refund will be issued within 30 days.

Many of our electronics products are now being shipped with holographic security labels sealing the back covers/panels in place. Refunds are contingent upon the integrity of the security label and is non-negotiable. If the labels are tampered with in any way, including but not limited to removal, broken, cut, dislodged, peeled back and replaced, or in otherwise changed state as when applied in our shop, the Return For Refund policy is void, and no refund will be issued. Products purchased for demo, video, or comparison "shootouts" are not eligable for return, or refund without prior consent of Classic Amplification.

Shipping is provided by service providers such as USPS, UPS, and FedEx. Classic Amplification does not offer free shipping or free return shipping. Funds collected by us for shipping go directly to the shipping service providers none of which make any provision for the refunding of shipping funds in the event a customer decides to return a product/item, therefore we cannot refund your shipping costs.


PayPal Claim/Dispute Resolution

As part of PayPal's terms and conditions for doing business, we are obligated to abide by their claim/dispute resolution process. The parameters described by PayPal regarding claim/dispute process is an all-or-nothing process where a claimant gets their complete purchase amount (plus shipping) or the claim/dispute is denied and they get nothing.

In the event a PayPal claim/dispute is filed for a return for refund action, we abide by the decision of PayPal's claim resolution department. Filing a PayPal return for refund claim invokes PayPal's own refund policys which supercedes our return for refund policy thereby making our return for refund offer void. After a PayPal return for refund claim/dispute event is concluded it is final. We are not obligated to re-extend our return for refund offer in the event such claim/dispute is decided in our favor against the claimant, but we may do so at our own sole discretion.

In the event a PayPal claim/dispute is filed regarding payment for services rendered the resolution is final and we abide by the decision of PayPal's claim resolution department.


Used Gear Trade-in
