FAQ - Inventory, Ordering & Shipping

Inventory - Is XXXX In Stock?

If you are able to add an item to the cart, then it is In Stock.  Short of a website updating error, we do not list a product as available if the item is out of stock. 

This means that there will be items that we normally stock, but are listed as out of stock if we don't have the item on our shelves.  Usually, we are waiting for a delivery from the manufacturer and not discontinuing the item.  The manufacturers in the industry have wildly varying lead times depending on OEM orders, trade shows etc.  Often an item will be expected quite quickly, other times, it could be a month.  Regardless, please contact us and let us know that you want to be notified when something is back and stock, and we will let you know when it comes in to our shop. We do not need to hold your money hostage.


How can I place an order?

You can place your order directly on our website using our secure checkout system. In addition, if you prefer, you are welcome to give us a call (401-285-2277) and place your order over the phone.


What method of payment does Fat Bass Tone accept?

There are several ways you can make payment for an order: Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, Discover, Paypal, Apple Pay, Venmo and Google Pay.


How soon will my order ship out?

We understand that you want to get your order quickly. So our standard process is to ship all orders out the day after the order is placed. Orders which include a pre-wired Aguilar preamp or a pre-wired passive harness may need an additional day before shipping out. We ship out orders every weekday (Monday-Friday), except when there is a US Federal holiday, of course. Since Fat Bass Tone is closed over the weekend, we are not able to ship out orders on Saturday.


What service does Fat Bass Tone use for shipping?

We ship orders with both USPS and UPS. Orders which are shipped using the “Free Shipping” promotion for orders over $50 will be shipped with USPS Parcel Select Ground or USPS First Class, depending on size and weight of the package.


Does Fat Bass Tone ship outside the US?

You bet! We are happy to ship orders anywhere in the world. However, please be aware that you may be responsible for import duties/VAT. We recommend checking with your local customs office to find out if these apply in your country.

**PLEASE BE AWARE THAT US DEALERS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO SHIP Aguilar, Darkglass, EBS, Tech21, Earthquaker Devices products outside of the US.

Note about choosing First Class Package International - While this is the least expensive option, please note the following:

If you select First Class Package International, please be patient.  Be aware that transit time may be long for certain countries. In some cases, it is not uncommon for packages to take 6-8 weeks for arrival. If you would like to change to another service, contact us immediately. UPS Worldwide Saver is a service that has served our customers well.

While First Class Package International can arrive timely, it can often get held up in customs or with slow moving transit of a particular country’s postal service. We ship orders within 1 business day typically, and the packages are usually leaving the US within 2-3 days en route your country. Once the package arrives in your country, delivery is handed off to your country’s postal service, and that is where things begin to slow down.


Can I get a tracking number for my order?

Of course! When your order ships out, we will send you an email with your tracking number so you can keep up to date with the status of your package.


Can Fat Bass Tone send my international order as a “gift” or undervalue it on the customs form?

Sorry, but no. We believe in honesty and integrity in all facets of our business…that even includes the customs forms.
