NOTE: Bethel Music Center reserves the right to hold, delay, or cancel any order that it feels may be fraudulent. To resolve such cases additional information may be requested from the customer. It is the responsibility of the customer to prove their identity. The best way for customers to avoid triggering a potential fraud hold on their order is to make sure that their shipping name and address matches their billing name and address when placing the order.


Oversized or overweight items are denoted in the item's description by an 'Over Sized Item' image like the one on the left. An additional fee will be applied for oversized and over weight items even in cases where the order amount would have made the shipping free. The fee will be added in the shopping cart.



Special Orders that are cancelled before we ship are subject to a 10% cancellation fee. BMC has a two week money back return policy (less shipping costs). If you are not satisfied with a product purchased from BMC, just call the music store within 14 days of receipt to arrange the details of your return. Some restrictions apply.
