10. TRIAL To find your perfect match is not an easy task, that’s why we provide you with a platform to help you select your next violin among the best options available. In our comparison service you can compare the essential qualities to find the instrument to complement your music. We ensure you a differentiated virtual experience using the highest levels of technology to make sure you will find your perfect match. In the tool you will be able to hear four selected instruments playing sequentially – all of the audios were recorded within the same conditions, same musician, same microphone, same place, same bow/violin, to guarantee a fair comparison. Even though we facilitate this choosing process for you, we also grant you a 30 day trial period for total peace of mind in the comfort of your home, starting from the day the masterpiece arrives for you.
11. EXCHANGE If, by the time of the 30-day trial period, you think the instrument doesn’t respond to your needs or is not what you were expecting, you can choose to upgrade the instrument and pay the difference or to downgrade and receive the difference back. Once the returned instrument arrives, our team will make all the necessary checks to confirm the instrument’s integrity. The condition must be preserved, the same as it was like when first shipped from us. Once verified, we will get in touch and discuss the options available. You will then be granted another 30- day trial period for total peace of mind. Amorim Fine Violins Cremona covers all the first chosen instrument’s return costs and the shipping of the second one to enhance your online buying experience. Do not forget that our experts are here to help you; contact us if you need some advice on which instrument may fit all your requirements.
