Guarantee
There is a three-year guarantee on:
  • Mechanism and its adjustment
  • Padding with "A. Braun" pads
The following applies to all wooden parts: Even an instrument made of the best, flawless wood which has been seasoned and prepared for years can develop cracks as a result of careless treatment. No guarantee is undertaken for damage thus arising. Therefore with all wooden parts one should be familiar with the best precautions, causes and means of avoiding such mishaps, and should take great care of the instrument.
If in spite of this a crack should appear during the first two years, as a gesture of goodwill the instrument will be repaired or - at the discretion of the manufacturer - the defective wooden part will be exchanged free of charge.

The right to a claim under guarantee cannot be asserted if the instrument has been repaired at a workshop not authorised for this purpose or by other persons, or if the instrument displays mechanical damage of any kind.

All costs for transport are not part of this guarantee.
