Shipping and Returns

» USPS Shipping

  • Please be aware that although USPS is sometimes a less expensive method of shipping, USPS does not guarantee delivery time nor does it provide accurate tracking or recourse for lost, damaged, delayed, or stolen shipments. For faster, more reliable delivery with accurate tracking, we recommend that you select FedEx shipping options.
  • If you choose USPS as your method of shipment and an issue arises, Memphis Drum Shop will do everything in its power to facilitate a positive resolution. However, we will not be able to refund, reimburse, or resend packages that are lost, damaged, delayed, or stolen. If USPS is chosen, you, the customer, will assume full responsibility for your shipment once it leaves our facility.
  • USPS service may be limited by box size and insurance amount restrictions. We will not ship uninsured parcels, for any reason. For a full list of "Country Conditions for Mailing" please click here: Simply choose your country from the pulldown menu on the left labeled 'Individual Country Listings'.

  • Free Shipping applies to the Continental US only (Alaska & Hawaii excluded).
