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! I certainly believe that all of these rolls are super great or I would not offer them and I am not afraid to offer a money back guarantee on them if not satisfied. (Shipping of course is not refundable, since the post office won't do it.) Now You Can Listen To them!
