Shipping & Returns


The dedication to musicians and customer service that has made Vic’s one of the premier drum shops encompasses everything we do. We ship via Fed Ex or The US Postal Service (USPS) for smaller items.

We know you want to invest every dollar you can in your gear and not the cost of getting it to you. 

•  Lightweight orders may be shipped via USPS and may not have a tracking number.
•  Shipping to PO Boxes is only available on USPS deliveries.
•  Heavy and oversized items may incur additional shipping charges.
•  At this time, Vic's Drum Shop only ships within the Continental United States.
•  Certain items may or may not qualify for free shipping based on size and quantity.

Your Shipping Options

At Vic’s we know you are eager to get your gear and we will do everything we can to get it to you as quickly and securely as possible. Most orders ship within 24 hours of order verification. We use either UPS or USPS for deliveries. Please note though that free shipping is only available with UPS and USPS.

•  All orders ship directly from Vic’s and our team of experts works hard to ensure your order is accurate and on time.
•  For your protection, orders over $250 usually require signature verification.
•  To get you your gear as quickly as possible, your order may arrive in separate shipments but you will not be charged more if this is the case.
•  Lighter orders taking advantage of free shipping may be sent via USPS and may not have a tracking number.
•  Orders shipping to APO/FPO addresses, PO Boxes, and U.S. territories (Guam, Virgin Islands, etc.) are shipped by USPS (6-10 business days). International APO/FPO destinations may require additional delivery time and costs. Special arrangements must be made to ship orders over 70 lb. to these locations.
•  Manufacturer restrictions prohibit the shipping of certain products to certain destinations. Our experts will contact you to discuss your options.
