 Weiner company policy
Author: Karen

Hi, my teacher suggested that I buy a clarinet from Weiner music. It's a mail order company in Mineola, NY. My teacher said that the company could send me three clarinets to try out and I pick from those, I just have to give them the credit card number. When I called them up, Weiner said that I would have to pay for all three clarinets before they send them to me, when I send them back, they would refund my money. Wouldn't just the credit card number do? Is this policy common? I just know that $6000 is a lot for me to pay upfront.

Are you kidding? Boy that is quite extreme. Buy them at Woodwind & Brasswind 800-348-5003. They have a much better return policy than Weiner, Muncy, IMS, etc. Check them out.
WW&BW has the longest trial of any of them - Weiner's 3 day trial is a joke!

The charge policy is common in most circles, as you ordered the product, you must pay up front. They are willing to credit upon return. The better way is to make a trip to the store and try out as many horns as you can get your hands on.

I bought my Bass Cl. from Weiner. They are quite slow in sending product out, as well as crediting you on the return. They do have the best stock I found anywhere. Woodwind had no 1193 Bass Clarinets in stock, and Weiner had 5.

I would make the trip next time, and walk out with the horn, rather than wait a month to get it.

Sales tax is the only disadvantage. You will pay NY tax if you go there. The trip can be fun. Take in a show and have a nice dinner afterwards. Roundtrip airfares are usually reasonable to NYC.
