Our Vision and Mission

Derringers Music (Pty Ltd ABN 89 067 468 311) and Drum Shop (62 098 692 534) is not just another music store but a service-oriented business that puts you and your music at the centre of everything we do. To meet your needs we offer thousands of products online and in our stores. At Derringers, we continually work to present highly competitive pricing and above all to be fair, reliable and prompt in our service, sales and advice. Our advertising and web store presents to you with the most popular and sought after goods. Every effort is made to preserve the relationship with you as a highly-valued and long-term customer.

Peace Of Mind

Derringers Music holds the most popular and sought after items in our stores and warehouse so we can quickly satisfy your purchase requirements. We are continuously replenishing our stock to maintain our goals of delivering timely service to you. However, occasionally items may be on back-order, or in the case of special orders, there may be a waiting time. In these cases we regularly keep you informed of the estimated delivery time or if the lead-time is long, offer you any available options. If you have an immediate need or a delivery time constraint, give us a quick call prior to your purchase. Whether you are purchasing in-store or online, our aim is to give you peace of mind with your purchases. Your music enjoyment and satisfaction is our primary aim.

Pricing and Availability
Derringers Music sells most instruments and accessories below the Manufacturer's Suggested or Recommended Retail Price (MSRP/RRP). Unfortunately, some retailers give an unrealistic expectation of huge discounts below the MSRP/RRP and falsely advertise and mislead customers. These unscrupulous retailers often do not hold stock or occasionally only a single item in stock. They falsely advertise, hoping that if your intended instrument is out of stock that you will purchase a more expensive alternative. This is called "customer baiting" and is an unscrupulous practice. Derringers Music does not engage this or in any misleading or deceptive advertising. As a customer of Derringers Music you are highly-valued by us and look forward to life-long relationship with you.

Please see our webstore and ground pricing information below to understand any potential pricing differences you might see.

Special Promotions

Occasionally, Derringers Music will provide limited quantities for product promotions where we have been able to secure special prices from our supplier and manufacturing partners. With these special promotions, we will clearly identify real and valuable lower prices for available stock that we have on hand.

These promotions may be for a limited time and/or only apply while stocks last.

When an Item is Not Immediately Available

When an instrument or accessory is not available and we are not able to meet your required time constraints, we try to offer all possible solutions. We will contact you and aim to find and agree upon an acceptable delivery date. Or at your request, we try to offer equal or similar products as an alternative to your original choice. For example, a particular instrument may be available in an alternate colour. We are involved in a highly dynamic industry and products change, are upgraded, and in some cases become obsolete. Derringers Music cannot guarantee that every product will be in-stock all of the time but we take every measure to ensure our advertising and web store reflects the currently available stock. If we cannot satisfy your need, or you are not completely satisfied, or we cannot find a suitable alternative, or you are unable to wait for a later delivery then we will cheerfully refund the purchase amount in full.

Web Store and Ground Store Pricing Information

Every effort is made to marry ground store pricing as closely as possible to our online advertised pricing. As the website is fluid and can be updated ad-hoc, you may find differences. Please understand ground store costs of consultation, multiple staff, utility bills, rent and huge stock levels necessitate a surcharge that may render the goods dearer than a direct to cart online purchase. We are always negotiable in-store and endeavour to keep the difference minimal. Should you be in-store and have seen online pricing which differs to a price shown in store, please make mention to our personnel. You are always entitled to the lower of the two prices where not part of an unambiguous online-only promotion.

Price Errors

All effort is made to have every item priced correctly. Unfortunately, very occasional errors happen and an item may be incorrectly marked. Should product price be in error (for example: below our costs, obsolete, technical error on the webstore or point of sale) it is an honest mistake. In such circumstances where we have made an honest mistake, Derringers Music reserves the right to refuse a sale and refund in full your cart purchase and payment inclusive of ancillary bank charges. Thankfully, such occurrences are very rare, but we are human and are not infallible. Even in such cases, we put you first. Your refund will be total.
