We know how important it is to try a selection of string instruments and bows before you buy them.  From beginners to advanced players we know that your musical instrument is your tool and must be the best one for you.  All string instruments are made differently and have a different sound.  We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase.  That is why we offer this instrument trial program.

How it Works

  • Call 800-761-2585 to set up an instrument trial over the phone or Fax or email us the Trial Contract and a copy of your drivers license.
  • There is a $25 set up-fee for bows, violins, and violas.  This covers return shipping making it easy on you.  Set up fees for cellos and basses vary.  Please call us for the options to try a cello or bass.  Note: All instruments and bows are professionally “set up” so allow for a minimum of 5 days before we ship.
  • Try up to 3 instruments or bows for 10 days from the date you receive them.
  • Return the ones you do not want to purchase with a prepaid return label.

It is really that easy!!  First just call us and we get the process for your instrument trial started.  We will need to get your contact info, drivers license and shipping address.  We collect your credit card info just to keep on file until the items are returned.

The intermediate to advanced instruments are professionally setup in the shop.  This does take time so do allow for this.  Any other questions on this feel free to ask.  Then the instruments are shipped out to you.  A prepaid return label is included.
