Best Price Guarantee

Here at Sky Music we're committed to offering highly competitive prices to our customers.

We always try to have excellent prices advertised on our website - however every now and then there are cases where our prices may not have been updated and our price is not the lowest you've seen. 

With this in mind we offer to match and where possible beat any advertised price from an Australian musical instruments retail store. And if you're looking at overseas stores, we'll see what we can do about getting near their prices too! 

If you're interested in a product and you've seen a better deal elsewhere, CALL US ON 03 9546 0188 - We'd love to hear from you, and we promise to do everything we can to make sure you get the best deal possible. 

What items does our price-match promise apply to?

All identical products with identical terms and conditions that are stocked at Sky Music and in stock at our competitor*. 
The item must be in stock and readily available from the competitor's store. The item can't be floor stock, ex-demo or a discontinued model, and Sky Music must be an on-going stockist of the particular item.

What items are excluded from the Best Price Guarantee?

  • Non identical products and services (inclusive of non-identical warranties) 
  • Package deals i.e. mic and interface bundles 
  • Cash back offers 
  • Customer special orders 
  • Contract Pricing 
  • Liquidation sales prices, floor stock sale prices or any other one-off deals that are not available on-going 
  • Items offered for sale by a store who is not an authorised dealer for the brand in question 
  • Items offered for sale by a store who doesn't physically have them item in stock 

* By competitor, we are referring to Australian music stores - though we do welcome any opportunity to see what we can do about competing with international stores.

** This offer is only valid on in-store purchases and phone orders - it does not apply to online transactions. This offer does not apply to stock exchanges, or lay-bys.
