We will send 2 or 3 of our better violins with bows and cases to you for a one week approval period. We require a credit card be kept on file but do not charge anything until you decide to purchase from us. On the first shipment, we pay the shipping to you and you pay the return shipping. On subsequent shipments, you pay shipping both ways. You do not need to add any additional insurance on the return shipping since the instruments are covered under our shop policy. Shipping charges will vary according to the number of instruments, weight, destination and shipping method. We ship via UPS, FedEx or Southwest Air Cargo. UPS and FedEx shipments require a signature upon delivery. Southwest Air Cargo shipments are picked up at your convenience from any airport into which Southwest flies. This is the fastest, safest and least expensive way to ship instruments. We do NOT ship via U.S. Postal Service. We ask that you return instruments to us via FedEx, UPS or Southwest Air Cargo. See our Approval Process instructions.
Once you have purchased an instrument from us, we allow 100% future trade-in from the original owner on any instrument of equal value or more, as long as the trade-in is still in good condition. Our generous trade-in policy also applies to bows, minus any bow rehair, leather grip or other repairs that might be needed. We do not trade cases. See our trade-in policy here.
Our inventory changes daily. Not all instruments are available in every size. All orders are placed by phone. Please call to set up an account and discuss your instrument choices. We look forward to helping you find the ideal instrument to suit your needs!
