Extended Holiday Return Window

With the coming "most wonderful time of the year" also means it's the most busy time of the year. We know that buying a musical instrument for yourself or someone special is a life-changing gift that can open up a world of self-discovery, creativity, and mastery experiences. But it's also a deeply personalized decision, and we want everyone who gets an instrument for the holidays to have plenty of time to decide if it's right for them. That's why we're excited to extend your return/exchange period on all holiday purchases.
For Holiday purchases made on or after November 28th, you will have at least until January 31st to return or exchange.

Standard return policy

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return the product(s) within 45 days of delivery for a refund*. Contact our customer service team for a return shipping label and instructions.

Unless there's an issue with the product, you are responsible for return shipping costs. The return shipping cost is deducted from the refund amount when the return is completed.

In order to get a product refund, returned items must be in the original packaging and condition - showing no signs of wear or abuse, and be complete with all included materials such as cases, straps, strings, certificates**, and any other materials that initially shipped with the product(s). Refunds are issued to your original form of payment only.

* Exclusions apply for certain non-returnable items.
** If your instrument included a certificate of authenticity and it is not returned with the instrument, you will be charged a $150 replacement fee.

How can I cancel or change an order I just placed?

If you just placed an order, and for any reason changed your mind and would like to cancel or make a change, we have a small window to do so. For any order cancelation/change requests, we recommend calling us as soon as possible at 800-595-0592.

We work our hardest to ship your order as quickly as we can. If you are not able to cancel or make changes on time, we can help you find a solution. Our return policy also makes it easy to return your purchase.

Fiddlershop's Exchange Policy

If an item arrives broken or with a manufacturer's defect, we will fix, replace or credit you for the item(s) - free of charge. Please call us within 14 days of receiving your item(s) for these claims. If an item breaks/malfunctions within the warranty period, we will also replace/exchange the item at no cost to you! We'll completely cover shipping/handling both ways (excludes international shipments).

Non-Returnable Items

We do not give refunds for the following items if opened or used: cleaners, polishes, rosin, strings, earplugs, polishing cloths and cleaning kits. We may exchange these items for free, however, if applicable. Returned merchandise with damages, broken parts, or that are otherwise considered non-sellable are non-returnable.

International Returns

Internationally shipped items can only be returned/refunded on a case-by-case basis. If an item is returned and is in resellable condition, we will refund the cost of the item. Refund of shipping fees is only possible in a situation where we are at fault (e.g. we shipped to an address other than the given address).  

How to Return an Item
  1. Email us at support@fiddlershop.com, provide us with your order number and list which product(s) you are returning.
  2. Wait for us to contact you and go over the return.
  3. Ship the package back to us following the given instructions. In most cases we can provide a return label.
Refusal of Delivery

If you refuse a delivery, miss your delivery appointment(s), provide an inaccurate/non-deliverable address, it is considered Refusal of Delivery. If an item is refused upon delivery for any reason other than showing obvious signs of damage, you are responsible for both outgoing and return shipping cost.
