All Products are new unless stated, and include a minimum of one year warranty.

(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


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.

High Quality Audio

Audio quality is of primary importance with the Roland AR-3000SD. The recorder can perform at up to 24-bit quality, which offers increased headroom and a generally more accurate definition. The 96kHz playback quality provides large audiences with a detailed sound, no matter how loud the speakers are. The audio can be saved as both WAV and MP3 files, offering choice of preference to each user. The audio can be saved to an SD card, or to a USB flash drive as a backup.

Extensive Editing Features

The AR-3000SD offers a range of editing features to optimise your sound. The truncate feature is useful for trimming down the unnecessary silences before and after the required audio. The Phrase Combine joins multiple expressions together for a seamless audio playback. The AR software can be downloaded directly to your computer for simple edits and file conversions. The AR-3000SD’s digital screen and on board controls make audio editing simple and reliable.

Full Range of Inputs and Outputs

Roland have equipped the AR-3000SD with a host of inputs and outputs for easy accessibility. The LAN connection is an efficient way to synchronise the device to multiple computers, which is ideal for sound engineers. The line-thru feature allows you to blend two audio devices together, such as background music or announcements. All the AR-3000SD’s ports are easily accessible and neatly organised for the ease of use.
