Lomax Classic is a small cottage industry handcrafting very unique products for woodwind musicians. For this reason the time involved for processing your order can vary from next day shipping to several weeks. Orders are processed on a first come first served basis. Some of our products are in such demand that we have a waiting line for them. For these reasons, we want to make sure our customers understand that the SHIPPING METHOD you choose only effects the time involved for your order to arrive, ONCE THE ORDER HAS BEEN SHIPPED! Also, we have found PRIORITY MAIL to be the least expensive method of shipment, so we strongly encourage customers in the CONTINENTAL U.S. to ship by PRIORITY MAIL.
