What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
