As a family business spanning four generations, we strive to make our policies and practices as beneficial and simple as possible.  We work with each customer on an individual basis and promise to always do what's right in every circumstance.  Below we cover the details of our company policies and hope you find them not only clear and understandable, but also helpful and valuable.  

10-DAY TRIAL: (excludes in-store purchases) Can’t get to our store to try out your next accordion? Don't worry, we have you covered. Our 10-day trial allows you to purchase a new petosa, Giulietti, Americana or Certified Pre-owned accordion and try it in the comfort of your own home for 10 days. Love it? Keep it. Don’t love it? Send it back for a refund and only pay shipping*. Trial applies to new in-stock petosa, Giulietti, Americana & Certified Pre-owned accordions (excludes Hohner accordions, in-store purchases, special or custom orders and electronic products). Customer is responsible for paying all shipping charges to and from petosa on returned items. Electronic payment fees are not refundable and will be deducted from the refund upon return. Items must be returned in new condition, without any wear from use. 

CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED EXCHANGE GUARANTEE: We welcome you to trade-up for an instrument of equal or greater value and receive 100% of the accordion’s original purchase value within 6 months of purchase date. We extend the trade-up guarantee to 1 year when trading up to a new petosa model of equal or greater value.  The 6-month trade-up guarantee is a single-use offer and applicable shipping/bank fees may be deducted from the allowance. Exchanges must be returned in relatively the same condition without any excessive use or wear. After the exchange period expires, depreciation will be applied to the trade-in and value will be appraised upon inspection.

AMERICANA -  p e t o s a  EXCHANGE GUARANTEE: Americana (by petosa) includes a trade-back promise that guarantees 100% of the original accordion price to be applied to a new petosa within one year.  Value excludes any payment fees, shipping and excess wear to be determined upon inspection.
