Free Extended Warranty

When you choose Vintage King, you know you're protected. That's because we stand behind all of our new and used gear with a FREE warranty. If you purchase new gear, we extend the manufacturer's warranty by one year, giving you added peace of mind. What's more, we even protect your investment in used and classic gear, providing a VK-backed warranty at no added cost to you. We hope you'll never have to use it, but if you do, our customer service team is unbeatable.

If it's available at Vintage King, we add one year to the manufacturers' warranty FREE. Should a problem ever arise, our team will go above and beyond to facilitate the best possible solution in the timeliest manner. We think that having an unexpected gear problem is headache enough, so we take care of every detail to get you and your gear back up and running as fast as possible. When you choose Vintage King, you're automatically covered.

Back before we got our start, owners Mike and Andrew Nehra would buy gear through ads in magazines, sight unseen, and would often receive broken junk they couldn't return. In launching Vintage King in the early '90s, they made a pledge to never let that happen to any of their customers. That's why we offer up to a one-year FREE warranty on any used or vintage piece we sell — and any piece we service. We protect your investment in used microphones with six months of our leading VK protection. We cover most used digital gear for 30 days. You receive a full year of coverage on almost everything else. There's simply no other protection for used gear like it. Plus, your FREE coverage comes in addition to the rigorous testing and evaluation we give each and every piece of used gear available for purchase at Vintage King.

Vintage King has long been recognized as the ‘go to’ company for our servicing and technical expertise. With over 100 years combined experience, our in-house technical staff is the largest in the industry, having serviced some of the world’s most legendary gear. We have built, rebuilt, customized, refurbished, installed, and manufactured gear for over twenty years. Customers worldwide recognize our commitment to stand behind the equipment we sell and the service we provide. Where else can you find a staff that has rebuilt some of the most historical pro audio ever used? Be assured, your gear will be in good hands.

Important warranty details you should know:

Our warranty does not apply to a handful of items for sale at Vintage King marked "as is." These items are distinctly marked "as is" on our site. We do our best to accurately describe "as is" gear, pointing out all known flaws and defects. However, we often sell these items in the same shape we received them in and make no promises about the gear's condition or fitness. "As is" items are nonreturnable unless the item is entirely nonfunctional at the time you receive it. If your gear will not power on or pass signal upon arrival, get in touch with us right away and we will coordinate a return.

Our warranty coverage applies only to product failure when used under normal operating conditions. Normal wear and tear is not included (for example, rack rash, the need for a new knob as the numbers have worn off, etc.). We will, however, help you get a replacement should you need one! Warranties are non-transferable. Please take a minute to read the warranty details below:
