We Take Orders Very Well ... Send Us Yours!

LAST UPDATED January-March 2020 (Edited Contact & Order Info Sections) - Supersedes all previous lists. Subject to change. © 1998 - 2020 by DaviSound
PRICING STATEMENT: While prices may sometimes increase by necessity, you will NEVER see our prices lower than this list!
You may order with confidence that once DaviSound prices are published ...
Our prices are never reduced! We do NOT, EVER, have "sales" or "discounts"!

***PLEASE NOTE***
Although materials costs and inclusive shipping costs have increased...
DAVISOUND HAS NOT HAD A PRICE INCREASE ON ANY ITEM SINCE 2009!



IT'S SIMPLE TO PLACE AN ORDER!


Nowadays, ALL order arrangements are handled entirely by email correspondence.


When we are ready to confirm your order with your payment ...
our standard terms are as follows:


50% down to initiate order ... 50% on completion (a couple of weeks prior to shipping) .

Most standard Tool Box orders now average about three months from initiation to completion under normal circumstances.
(As of 2020, DaviSound only accepts STANDARD Tool Box orders with little or no customization.)

We can always further extend completion time and final payment to accomodate your needs.

If you prefer, you may make full payment in advance and deduct 3% from your price total!






PAYMENT OPTIONS:

DAVISOUND ACCEPTS ALL TYPES OF CHECKS AND, OF COURSE, MONEY ORDERS.



*NOTE*
We now accept credit cards and debit cards SECURELY, soley and exclusively, through PayPal!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO OPEN, OR HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PAY DAVISOUND BY CREDIT CARD ...
(Details Below)


We were a CHARTER MEMBER of Elon Musk's original PayPal as we were most impressed with their "airtight" business structure ...
their state-of-the-art security, and their comparatively low user fees!

Now that PayPal has been absorbed and managed by eBay®, although fees for sellers are higher (and often increasing) ...


THERE IS STILL NO FEE FOR U.S. BUYERS!
And, it still seems as if a high level of service will continue.

So far, to date, we have enjoyed 100% success with all PayPal transactions ...
and we solely rely on this method of credit card acceptance and direct, on-line payment!
We encourage our clients to comfortably utilize it with complete confidence.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO OPEN, OR HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PAY DAVISOUND BY CREDIT CARD ...

The account registration processs with PayPal is entirely OPTIONAL.

Most people choose to open a PayPal account for the convenience it offers for future Internet purchases ...
But, registration is entirely your option.

When you use PayPal ... your payment is doubly secure and your account information completely private!


DaviSound is PayPal Verified.

* PLEASE NOTE AS OF 2020 *


We have now removed the PayPal instant order form from this order page. This is because we now accept order payments strictly on a one at a time basis to avoid creating a lengthy pre-paid backlog. So, if you wish to order a DaviSound product, please correspond with us by email first and we will advise you of our current scedule. All inquiries and order requests will be handled in chronological order as always but we will only accept payments for projects as they are actually begun. When we are ready to accept your order and your pre-payment, we will notifiy you by email and also send you a PayPal invoice for the initiation deposit (or payment in full should you so choose). You will, then, receive a transaction ID sent from PayPal keyed to your purchase as well as a pdf copy of your DaviSound invoice sent from DaviSound attached to your email.

Thank you and we look forward to corresponding with you!

In our case, we can process quite a few eMail exchanges in the same amount of time it used to take to return just one phone call!

DAVISOUND NO LONGER ACCEPTS FULL CUSTOM EQUIPMENT COMMISSIONS



SUBSEQUENT OWNER REFURBISH - It is not often that an original commissioner lets go of a DaviSound piece. However, in some cases it has happened. For those who obtain a DaviSound unit from a prior owner may have the unit refurbished, and recertified, in the name of the new owner for a flat bench fee of $295.00 which includes our return shipping and handling charges back to you.

This basic fee does NOT include cosmetic refinish or replacement of custom, exotic hardware, VU meters, or similar special parts (although we always clean and touch up exisiting cabinetry and existing components as much as possible). Extra charges may apply in some cases, by mutual agreement, depending upon extra work required or requested, desired modifications, additions or special replacements.

Once a unit is recertified for the subsequent owner a new lifetime warranty (for main signal path components) is extended on behalf of the new owner.

Subsequent owners should email for more information and authorization prior to returning a piece to us.

Order Processing Procedure

When you entrust us with your order, you will find that our "old fashioned" business philosophy guarantees your satisfaction and assurance at every stage of the process.

With DaviSound, EVERY order is handled as a PERSONAL, CUSTOM order!
Expect thorough attention to detail and complete, personal attention from the initiation stage through final delivery!

Preliminary work begins on your order immediately upon our receipt of your order confirmation payment.

Your item(s) will be assigned a unique Product ID Number(s) and an invoice will be prepared detailing your purchase. You will be sent an email confirmation containing a copy of this invoice as an attachment typically within 24 hours of our receipt of your payment.

You will be sent periodic progress updates on your order via personal email correspondence and you will be advised of the final test stage, as well as the shipping date, as soon as it is firmed. Then, once shipping has taken place ...
You will receive another email with the tracking/confirmation number.


* 2020 NOTICE *
As mentioned previously...
DaviSound now accepts only one pre-paid project at any given time.
All requests are processed in chronological order as before.


Unless unsuitable for some reason ...
DaviSound now ships exclusively via Insured USPS Priority Mail
with Tracking/Delivery confirmation.
WWW.USPS.COM/TrackAndConfirm

We have been in the "mailorder" business for over fifty years now and, in spite of what anyone else may tell you...
we have ALWAYS received far superior service from the US Postal Service than ANY other carrier!
Nowadays, Priority Mail is hard to beat, period!





WARRANTY AND POLICIES STATEMENT

Our warranty is unique and simple ... our products are guaranteed for life. This means that we will repair or replace (our option) any defective Tool Box, or custom built item, for as long as it is owned by the ORIGINAL PURCHASOR.

This warranty applies to all electrical specifications, and components in the main signal path, and covers all defects resulting only from normal use and NOT owner misuse or abuse. It does NOT apply to cosmetic defects nor to any mechanical defects caused by trauma ...
(such as dropping or other physical abuse).
Vacuum tubes are, of course, not covered under warranty in items utilizing tubes nor are other delicate components such as VU meters where utilized.

In the very unlikely event that repair is ever necessary ...
We will repair at NO COST except one way shipping! We will prepay return shipping.
Any such transaction should be arranged and confirmed with us prior to sending an item to us for repair.

Even if an accident or other situation should occur that causes damage not covered under warranty ...
Our repair services for our own products are always available at very modest rates
far below the industry standard rates for repair!

All warranties are void ...
if unauthorized internal tampering, modification or repair attempts have taken place!

PERHAPS OUR "BEST WARRANTY" TO OUR CUSTOMERS IS ...
OUR GENUINE CARE AND CONCERN!

We, above all, want our customers happy, satisfied and always coming back.
This means that you can rest assured that you will always be treated with the utmost
respect and consideration should ANY future problem arise!


LEGAL DISCLAIMER:

While we feel it should go without saying ...
In this day and age of rampant, personal irresponsibility, "entitlement", and frivolous lawsuits ...
We have been advised to publish the following statement:

DaviSound can not, and will not, be deemed liable or responsible, in any manner, for any occurrance that might result from any use, or misuse, of our products! All purchases signify consent that the purchaser / user is solely responsible for his/her own consequences to person, persons, or property, in relation to any use, or misuse, of any DaviSound product!




Obviously, DaviSound products never have, and never will, "flood" the marketplace! This is inherently so because you can only build and deliver just so many handmade products over time. We have NEVER INTENDED to become a high volume "mass producer" in any fashion.

EVERY DaviSound Tool Box or Custom Piece becomes a working reality
because of a mutual commitment and a mutual investment.

The extensive time we invest in fabricating each piece is irrecoverable.
For this reason we accept orders only from sincere clients ...
those who are as committed to seeing our projects through as we are.

We cannot afford to waste time with curiosity seekers or whimsical buyers!

ONCE WE ALLOCATE A TIME SLOT FOR A SPECIFIC CLIENT AND PROJECT,
THEN THAT BLOCK IS RESERVED FOR THAT CLIENT,
WITH EACH INCOMING ORDER HANDLED CHRONOLOGICALLY.

THIS IS WHY WE, LIKE MANY OF YOU WHO SELL STUDIO TIME,
ARE ACTUALLY "BOOKING TIME" AND AN IRREPLACABLE TIME SLOT,
AS WELL AS SELLING A PRODUCT, WITH EACH ORDER WE PROCESS.

THEREFORE ... ALL ORDERS ARE FIRM AND FINAL.

The average time from order initiation to delivery for one of our STANDARD Tool Boxes is, under normal conditions, around three months.

There are many steps and stages involved in our hand assembly methods and fabrication techniques. Most of these steps require time-consuming, meticulous attention to detail. In addition to hand wiring and soldering at the component level, several of the stages in cabinet preparation, and circuit module fabrication, require fixed prep and "cure" times, as well as "burn-in" times, which simply can not be altered.

Consider that the necessary, required time factor involved in the fabrication of our unique hand-made equipment is, in itself, one of the many special "ingredients" that helps to make DaviSound Tool Boxes' performance, and appearance, unlike any other pro audio product in the world today!

This is one of the reasons we do not submit promotional pieces or "loaners" for "reviewers" ...
We don't have "spare" new inventory sitting on shelves. Thankfully, to date, the demand for our gear has always exceeded supply. We build it, we test it, we ship it!

Aside from some developmental prototypes, we have NEVER built a Tool Box ...
without someone waiting patiently, albeit anxiously, for its delivery!

If your order inquiry/request happens to come during an unusual delay period, we will advise you and keep you posted until we can be ready to accept your initiation payment. Most of our clients anticipate their wants and needs well in advance and delivery time is not a factor.

The point is, if you want to own a DaviSound product ...
you can be sure that WE ALWAYS WANT AND APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS ...
and we will ALWAYS try to accomodate you ...
as long you are willing to invest the little extra time and patience it may take to get it!


THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
