How do I sign financing documents out of state?

First Mutual Finance offers “E-Documents” allowing for digital signatures through secured methods provided by Docusign.

Can I do a trial on an instrument that I wish to finance?

Yes & no… you cannot use the financing account for the purpose of an instrument trial. Once the financing is completed, we are not able to perform a refund or exchange on the actual financing paperwork as it will be tied to a specific serial number. However, if you do intend on using the financing, you can initially use a credit card to start the trial and then we can later refund the card upon signed financing documentation. This would work in the following steps:

  • First, we would recommend that you apply and receive approval of the application first – approvals are good for 30 days
  • Second, you would order the instrument and pay with a credit card (we do charge the full amount but it can later be refunded)
  • After you receive the instrument and decide that you will keep it, we would then complete the financing paperwork and then would refund your credit card the amount financed.
  • If you decide to return the instrument and not complete the transaction, nothing is placed on financing and your credit card would be refunded under our normal trial/return policy described in our Terms & Conditions (links at the bottom of the page).
Can I use the financing I am approved for in place of a credit card charge for trial of instruments?

No. All trials must be set up with a credit card as the financing is not finalized until you sign the paperwork. So even if you have an approved application, it is not a valid form of collateral as we cannot receive payment guarantee until we have signed documents. If you know that you are absolutely purchasing the instrument with no chance of return, we can complete all the paperwork and then ship the instrument upon completion of the financing paperwork, but the item is not easily returned except in extreme circumstances that would have to be approved by First Mutual Finance.

What if I have poor credit or not enough credit built up and I think my application might decline?

If you have poor credit or have yet to establish any credit in your name, you will need to apply with a co-applicant for the initial application. Failing to do so will delay your application or cause a decline.

Can I apply for financing if I visit the store?

Yes, financing is available to all our of customers that are legal residents of the United States. Due to processing times for applications and sales, there are a few restrictions when it comes to in-store financing.  We highly recommend that you start the initial application online before coming in to make the process quicker for you. Please contact us prior to arriving at the store if you intend on using financing.

After I fill out the application, what happens next?

If you are approved for financing, we will contact you. Once approved, you will receive an email from Kessler & Sons Music with the next steps. You can also contact us by calling Toll Free 1-888-830-0474 and ask for Dave Kessler.
