5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Premium Pedigree

Akai Professional have designed the EWI USB to give wind players the expressive musical capabilities previously found only in much more expensive instruments. Being the first name in electronic wind instruments, Akai has had 20 years to study the art of playing saxophone, clarinet, oboe, bassoon and other traditional wind instruments.

Professional Performance

The EWI USB is powerful, flexible, reliable and easy to use. Great for both live and studio use, EWIs are the only choice for serious wind players looking to make music electronically, and are perfect for professional players.

Computer Control

You can easily connect the EWI USB to your PC or Mac, and using the included EWI USB software, practice, perform, create and record with a full collection of wind instrument sounds. Players can experience an unprecedented level of expressive control with the Aria Player software which was produced specially for use with EWI USB.

Large Sound Palette

You get over 75 different orchestral, concert band, jazz band, and synthesizer sound sets expertly recorded and programmed by Garritan, renowned for its ultra-realistic instrument sound libraries.

Multi Mode

EWI USB is designed for you to spend your time playing music; not learning technology. You'll find EWI USB easy to play whether you're just starting out as a woodwind student or an old pro wind player, with multiple fingering modes offered including sax, traditional EWI, flute, oboe, and EVI (brass).

Surprising Affordability

Historically, electronic wind instruments have fallen into two different categories: high-end, professional instruments and toys. EWI USB breaks the price barrier, bringing professional quality, expressive control, and a studio-ready sound library to a price the professional-wind-instrument world has never seen.
