Best Price Guarantee

We keep things simple and straightforward because our per song fee is the lowest online.*

Every once in a while, the other guys might run a sale to get close to (or just below) our $12 fee. If that’s the case, let us know. We can more than likely beat it.**

*Not including when third parties may run sales or promotions. Lowest fees are for standalone mechanical licenses only.
