The process has several steps, it begins with a certified technician that makes sure that the product is free of transportation damage, tuning is calibrated in all notes***, ensuring that the buttons react to their standard and that the bellow is free of air leakage.

We would like to remind you that the time given for products to leave our warehouse can range from 1-3 business days, the accordions pass one last time through the quality control department before leaving our warehouse to make sure that you receive the accordion in perfect condition.

COVERAGE:

Manufacturer’s Warranty:

Economic Accordions: On the majority of economic accordions the warranty is for 30 days on the mechanics of the accordion. It is important to note that the warranty comes straight from the manufacturer and only covers parts and service. Hermesmusic.com then determines the validity of your warranty and authorizes the repair prior from reception on the shop’s behalf, in case you have not previously contacted hermesmusic.com our technician will perform a courtesy inspection and processes authorization based on their criteria.

High-End Accordions: On high-end accordions, the manufacturer’s warranty is one (1) year on behalf of the manufacturer, the warranty covers the machinery of your accordion.

 

In any of our high-end accordions, coverage is as follows:

Reeds: to replace broken reeds*** a maximum of 4 reeds are covered, the replacement of the reeds after 4 reeds will have a cost assigned by the shop. The reeds service covers tuning or replaced reeds, it does not cover full tuning. This service is optional and available at an additional price.

  • ***If the technician determines that the reeds were broken due to abuse or lack of knowledge when it comes to handling the accordion are not covered by the warranty.

Tuning: the warranty does not cover full tunings and/ or customizations of any kind; in case of experiencing an excessive and frequent amount of broken reeds, the technician will prepare a full report for the manufacturer’s consideration.

Labor: While the damage is covered by the warranty, the client will not generate labor costs.

Shipping: For low and medium range accordions, the warranty covers one (1) repair trip, that is, if the accordion needs to be sent in for repair, the customer sends it on their own and Hermes Music will return it without any additional charges for the client. For high-end accordions, the warranty covers two (2) repair trips, that is, if the accordion must be sent in, Hermes Music will provide the repair label and will return to the customer at no additional charge; hereinafter shipments for repairs are at the customers’ expense.

 

*WARRANTIES ARE NON-TRANSFERIBLE

Product warranties are valid only with the customer registered as the buyer on hermesmusic.com; if the original client sells the accordion, the warranty is invalid.
