    3 out of 5 stars

    The strap was ripped and not in working condition. This is fine bc I just wanted the for decoration but I think it should have been delivered with it in better condition. The piece itself was exactly as pictured however there were a few screw holes that were made then whatever was screwed in was removed. Again for my purposes it's fine I just expected a more finished product.

A'loo! Onto new musical adventures... Each washboard I build I would be proud to play myself onstage. I strive to make instruments that seasoned percussionists and first-timers find fun and inspiring. Play on!

Returns and exchanges
Refunds will be accepted for any items you are not happy with and that have not been damaged, within a period of ten business days from the ship date.

If there are any issues with the instrument after this return period please contact me. Do note that the nature of the item is that it's susceptible to damage. After all, the way you use it is literally to BEAT on it. I am happy to talk with anyone who needs to repair a part; everything was assembled in a home workshop, thus almost everything can be repaired by a handy person with the right tools - I will be happy to walk you through what to do. To be realistic, an oft-used washboard will need to be replaced every couple of years. The rubboard will wear away; the woodblocks will lose their pop; the screws holding the bells on will inch their way out... it's the nature of the beast.
Payment is done through Paypal five business days or less from the purchase date. If you need to cancel a purchase, please contact me as soon as possible.
I wish ship ground from either the US Postal service, UPS or FedEx. Shipping will be done two business days from the date I receive payment. I am a touring musician, and if I am unable to ship within this time period because I am on tour, I will let you know as soon as I can wrangle a knowledgeable person to do so for me. Thank you for being flexible!
