Money Back Guarantee on all Roller Tune Recuts if you are not satisfied!
Another person in the music roll trade, told me "People are rather reluctant to buy a music roll that they have not listened to and since you know that these rolls are terrific, simply offer a money back guarantee and the collectors will buy them, knowing that they can get a refund if not delighted in their selection" Well!
