When dealing with reputable companies, shopping on the web is as
safe as traditional shopping with a credit card. The company that owns Musicians Webstore has been in business for over 25 years. All the information
we collect when you make a purchase is transferred via secured
servers which encrypt the data. Every time you make a purchase, your
credit card information is read by banks and other participants for
the sole purpose of processing the transaction. Although we cannot
make guarantees on their behalf, we can proudly say that we have
selected our partners with security as a main criteria. Once the
information reaches us, it falls within our policy of nondisclosure.
We will use the information only within the normal course of running
our business and not share it with other parties.
Placing orders from our website is simple, fast, convenient and
safe. All you need is Internet access, a browser and an email
address. Select the item you want, add to cart, keep shopping or
check out. All you need to do is follow the prompts and you'll be
done in no time!
We use the most robust SSL technology available, which is based upon
a 128-bit algorithm, available for use only in North America. This
encryption technology is so effective that the US government will
not allow the technology to be used outside it's borders for
security reasons. We use this standard secure server technology to
encrypt all information gathered from our customers at the time of
purchase. This means that the information is encoded and is
unreadable while it travels to our server. In fact, using your
credit card at www.musicianswebstore.com is considered safer than
using it at a restaurant or gas station.
Due to dealer policy agreements with our supplier, we are unable to
display prices online.

exceed this flat fee, personal contact via email or phone will be
necessary to confirm shipping details.
