California was issued a "Shelter-in-Place" order for all residents to stay home, and for most businesses to close. Our office and shipping warehouse are located at our residence. We are sheltering in place. We (Grahm and Trish) and one part time employee are all following WHO (World Health Organization) and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines.

  • What we are doing:
    *Responding to e-mails and phone calls.
    *Shipping HAPI Drum orders, via UPS Ground to the Contiguous United States, once a week.
  • What we can no longer do during the 'shelter in place' order:
    *NO walk-ins or visitors to our shop.
    *NO shipping small items (we will not be going to the Post Office)**
    *NO shipping to: P.O. Boxes, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Military Mail, International orders (we will not be going to the Post Office).
    **Items that we can’t ship have been marked out of stock on our website.

These are difficult times for everyone. We want to do our part to help flatten the curve. Stay healthy and safe and thank you for your continued support.

With love, rhythm & light, Grahm & Trish

International orders using a Freight Forwarder: We DO NOT ship to freight forwarders. A freight forwarder is an agent who organizes the delivery of goods to the customer outside of the United States. Freight forwarders repackage our drums and lose the add on items like the mallets, bag, booklet. Other times the drums arrive damaged. If you disregard this notice and purchase, your order will be cancelled. We will have to deduct 5% from your refund to cover our credit card processing fees.

Item(s) must be returned with all original packaging and accessories. We'll pay any return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item). In the event of a return, you will receive your refund within three weeks of returning your package.
