At Andertons Music Co. we firmly believe in getting the right equipment in the hands of the right musician without any barriers to creativity. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get hold of the gear you want and start playing, now!
That's why we offer V12 finance packages across thousands of products on our website and in store. Instead of paying for the gear up front, you can spread the payments out over anything from 9 to 36 months.
Instant Online Finance
Why Choose Finance?
(Finance is subject to status)
Put simply, you can wait until you've saved up enough money for that new guitar, or that one piece of studio gear that's holding you back from perfect mixes. Or, you can use our flexible finance packages and get your hands on the gear you want, instantly! And we offer 0% interest / Buy Now Pay Later options, so you don't have to pay over the odds!
How Do I apply?
We've partnered with V12 finance as they specialise in Musical Instruments and provide a simple and easy application process. On each product page you'll see a finance calculator which will help you work out what the repayments on that product will be. What's more when you get to the checkout you'll see another calculator, and you can apply for finance on your whole basket! At the checkout, simply choose V12 Finance as your payment method and you'll be guided through the application process.

Minimum Finance Values
All our finance offering are subject to a minimum loan value. This value varies from package to package. It means that the maximum deposit that you can pay is capped.
For example, if you were purchasing a product for £350, using 9 Months Interest Free Finance, the maximum deposit you could pay would be £100 because the minimum loan value for this package is £250.
Our website checkout will automatically cap your deposit amount at the maximum possible amount. You can choose to pay any deposit between the minimum and maximum value.
What happens if I get declined?
Should your application for finance fail, you will need to contact V12 directly. They may be able to advise you as to why your application was declined.
What happens if I change my mind?
You have the right under section 66A of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 to withdraw from the agreement, without giving any reason, within 14 days from the day after the day on which the agreement is signed by you. Call V12 on 02920 468 900 to talk to their dedicated team. If you wish to keep the goods but cancel the finance, all you have to do is contact Andertons Music Co. and pay for the order via an alternative means (i.e. a credit card). Andertons Music Co. will then cancel your credit agreement and V12 will return your deposit. If you don't wish to keep the goods, then you must return your order to Andertons Music Co. in the same condition that you received it, at which point Andertons Music Co. will cancel the agreement and V12 will return your deposit.
Will Applying for finance affect my credit score?
As with any finance agreement the loan may be visible to other lenders, which could affect future decisions. However, we recommend contacting V12 directly for further advice on this matter.
How long does the application process take?
The contents of your application will be assessed and you will receive an instant approval or refusal of credit. In exceptional cases, your order will be held for manual assessment and you can expect to be notified by email of the credit decision within a few working hours.
What if I miss a payment?
If you are concerned about missing a payment, or have missed a payment we recommend you contact V12 directly. You can call them on 03331 22 11 01, and talk to their dedicated team.
What Is Buy Now Pay Later?
With our Buy Now Pay Later finance deal, you can purchase an eligible item (priced between £300 and £2500) with no deposit and not pay anything for 6 months. Nothing at all. Nada. If you pay it off within the 6 month period, there's a £29 settlement fee. If you don't, you'll start to repay the loan at 19.9% APR over 42 months - it's that simple! As with our other finance offers, agreements are subject to status. If you'd like to know more, contact V12 Finance on 02920 468 900, or by email at email@example.com.
