Returns / Warranty / Refund



Once your order has been shipped no immediate cancellations can be made. If you find you have entered the incorrect shipping details please email us ASAP at and we will attempt to correct the mistake.

Please Note: Product colour may differ slightly from photos due to lighting/monitor settings. 



We are happy to exchange your product if you change your mind for a Store Credit, on the strict conditions that it is:

  • Within 7 days of purchase.
  • The product is unused and in original condition.
  • Does not have fingerprints or other mark on it.

Return shipping is payable by the customer.

No returns on sale items, for 'change of mind'.

Once your return is received at our warehouse, you will be issued with a Store Credit via email, which will allow you to purchase any item of your choice. Store Credits are valid for 12 months from the date of issue only.

A 25% restocking fee will be charged for items returned with fingerprints and marks on them.



Send your item/s back to the address we will provide once the return has been arranged, via a trusted post method as we are unable to take responsibility for lost parcels. Signature on delivery is recommended.

Returned products are assessed and you will be notified if your return has been accepted. You may then be issued with a store credit voucher via email. If your return does not satisfy the above conditions it will not be accepted and will be returned to you. 


We thoroughly inspect all goods before they are sent out to you. We generally do not offer refunds for change of mind or incorrect selection of product.

Red Cymbals are guaranteed against defects in material or workmanship for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase.

What is Covered?
Any manufacturing default such as a separation in the metal or lathing on the main body of the cymbal.

What is Not Covered? Edge/Bell Cracks/Key Holing/Dents/‘Flea Bites’

Edge cracks (and dents): are obvious signs of incorrect technique or playing outside the parameters of what would be considered ‘reasonable use’ of the cymbal or it’s intended purpose. Using any cymbal in a ‘stack’ unless specifically sold as a ‘stacker’ would not be considered ‘reasonable use’.

Dents: Mishandling the cymbal, such as dropping it on its edge, is not covered under our warranty, therefore a cymbal that is cracked due to a nick or dent in the edge is not due to a material or manufacturing defect.

Key Holing:
when the centre hole is worn irregularly or has cracks, this generally indicates the nylon sleeve on the stand is worn or not used.

Cracks Around the Bell: This is caused by mounting the cymbal too tightly and restricting the movement of the cymbal thus causing unnecessary pressure on the bell. To avoid this: mount your cymbals loosely and don’t tighten the nut to restrict cymbal movement or use thick unyielding felts or other items.

Flea Bites are rust spots that can appear on cymbals if not stored in a dry environment or cleaned improperly. These do not appear on cymbals if stored in a quality cymbal bag or case and if cleaned with a cymbal specific cleaner.

Cleaning: Wipe/buff your cymbals with a microfiber or soft cloth after use. Do not use Brasso, Windex and citrus based or abrasive cleaners. This will void your warranty and may remove the logo on the cymbal.

Playing technique: We suggest playing the cymbals mounted lower and on a slight angle toward the drummer as well as playing with a sweeping motion across the cymbal rather than hitting down on the cymbal. Mounting the cymbals high and flat or angled toward the audience may cause exertion of irregular force on the edge of the cymbal, potentially causing them to crack prematurely.

Warranty Process
Email clear photographs depicting the fault, a description of your warranty claim and your sales receipt. Your receipt is essential for making a warranty claim.

* Red Cymbals are not responsible for covering the shipping costs to return a cymbal or shipping out a replacement cymbal.

** We will not replace a cymbal more than once.

If you have any questions about the warranty outlined above please email us and we will be happy to help.
