Pay total with a Check
My preferred payment method is a check as it saves me the 3% credit card/paypal charge.
Send your Personal Check payable to
JAMES JONES INSTRUMENTS with an order form to:
James Jones Instruments

Bedford, VA 24523
Pay the Total by Credit Card or PayPal
Click on the Buy Now button above. If you are feeling generous, you can add 3% to your total to cover credit card or Paypal processing fees. Include the shipping charges and 5.3 % tax but only if you live in VA. Send me a separate email indicating the items you'd like to purchase.
Note: When entering the amount, don't include a $ sign. Click on Buy with Paypal. After that you can decide whether you want to pay with Paypal or your credit card. You will not get a confirmation email but will only be returned to my site once the transaction is complete. Thanks!

Many of you actually send me emails with feedback on your experience with your purchased instrument, my website or whatever which I always appreciate. Please continue to do that but in addition I am now encouraging public reviews which helps my business grow and change. Just click the button at the bottom of any page to offer up a Google Review. Thanks!
For ordering things that have to be built, send a minimum $200 deposit with a clear description of the options and items you desire. I'll contact you to confirm receipt of your deposit and to indicate how long it will be before completion. The balance will be due when your instrument is finished. I'll contact you via regular or e-mail when your instrument is ready.
I am able to ship things overseas but you should be aware that it is somewhat expensive. The cost of shipping depends on the instrument and can range from $50 to $800. A zither would cost around $40 to ship while a bowed psaltery runs about $75. I'd be glad to give you a more accurate quote on the shipping; just send me your full address. I generally ship via USPS First Class International which is the least expensive. This method takes around a week to get there although they have size restrictions so for larger instruments I am forced to use UPS or FedEx which is faster but more expensive. Paying for instruments can be done using paypal or credit cards by clicking the above pay button. Your order must be paid for before shipment. If you need help on how best to pay for or ship an instrument contact me. I'm gaining experience as I am selling more instruments overseas.
Be aware that most countries charge duty on instruments purchased in the United States; that includes Canada. You should investigate what percentage you will be libel for and factor that into the cost of the actual instrument.
