Returns Policy


Southern Cross Flutes values your business and we want to be sure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase.

If you have any problem with any of our flutes or other products please contact us and we’ll do our utmost to resolve any issue so that you can fully enjoy your musical experience.

We stand behind our instruments completely! If the sound is affected by any structural defect, such as natural cracks, we will assess the flute and either replace it in full, or repair it .

In case of accidental damage (such as ‘a horse bit my flute’ – true story!) we will make every effort to repair the flute at a reasonable rate, plus the cost of return shipping.


If, having received your flute you find that it is not the perfect fit for you, Southern Cross Flutes will be happy to work out an exchange for a better fitting flute.

Returns are accepted within a period of 20 days from purchase, and the returned flute must be in the same condition as it was when it was purchased. No cash refunds are provided.

Returning a Flute

The cost for returning a flute and any additional posting is born by the customer. The customer is responsible for merchandise until it safely reaches us. To prevent damage during shipping, make sure your return is well packed.

Contact Todd with any returns or refund questions.


A full refund will be provided only in the situation where you do not receive your flute.

All refunds are processed by the same method that payment was made. For example, if payment is made by credit card, the refund must be issued to the same credit card.

Please note, we are only able to send bank transfer refunds to New Zealand bank accounts.
