Damaged on arrival:

As it is mentioned in the section “Shipments” we always contract an insurance for instruments sent through FedEx.

Once finalized all arrangements we will send you the money through a bank transfer or we will proceed to dispatch a new instrument, according to your preference.



-Notice that all our instruments are handmade in India, thus there can be slight variations from the pictures.


Blemishes in fiberglass cases:

-Please don’t forget that all Sitarsencat instruments have been sent from India. As a consequence of such a long trip it can be occur that some minimum blemishes can be seen at the fiberglass case’s surface but this will never affect the case’s resistance or durability.


Variations in price:

-Due to the increasing prices of materials such as wood, brass, cooper in the market, and the changing value of euro, which directly affect the cost of instrument’s making Sitarsencat reserves the right of modifications of the published prices.

-If you are a musician or you have a second hand instrument to sell, we are pleased to help you. You can be advertised in our web without any cost. Just contact us at musicos@sitarsencat.com.
