At Fiddlershop, we’re devoted to your musical journey, from a beginner/student instrument to the instrument of your dreams. We understand the importance of having an instrument matching your level of playing. To support this journey, we encourage you to take advantage of our generous trade-in program. To inquire about an instrument that you would like to trade-in, contact us via phone or email today.
We are happy to accept violins, violas, cellos, and double basses previously purchased from us as trade-ins from the original purchaser. The trade-in credit may then be used towards the purchase of another instrument of greater value. A general guideline is that the upgraded instrument has to be at least a third of an increase from the former instrument.
Every eligible trade-in is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the condition of the instrument, one can expect between 50-70% of the original purchase price as a trade-in credit towards an upgrade.
Please note that we reserve the right to reject an instrument as a trade-in. Instruments must be in good condition and without major damage.
