Amadeus violin shop in home trials

Here at Amadeus Music Limited we are all professional musicians and as such we are aware that choosing an instrument takes time and it is necessary to try different instruments, in order to find the perfect match.

This is why at Amadeus Music we now offer ‘In Home Trials’ (NZ nationwide) on our string instruments.

What is an IN HOME TRIAL?

An IN HOME TRIAL means that you have the opportunity to try instruments and choose what is best for you, in the comfort of your own home.

The only cost to you when you request and ‘In Home Trial’ is the return shipping charges at a flat fee of $30 for bows, $40 for violins or $80 for a cello.

We can ship to you, up to 3 violins, 2 violas or 1 cello at one time. You then have 7 days to try the instruments. At the end of the trial period, you send back the instrument(s) you don’t want and keep the one you do want. You will be invoiced for the instrument(s) you don’t return. The IN HOME TRIALS are available for instruments over $500.00 in value.

How it works:

If you know which instruments you would like to trial, please fill out the form below.

If you are not sure which instrument/s might be suitable for you, please send us an email with your details and some information about your age, level of playing and the type of instrument you are looking for. Our specialists will contact you with some suggestions of which instruments would be potentially suitable for you.

There is a $30 flat fee to select, process, and ship bow trials, $40 flat fee for violin or viola trials ( up to 3 violins or 2 violas ), and $80 flat fee for cellos ( 1 cello at the time ). All charges are inclusive of GST and Insurance.

After your instruments and bows have been selected, we personally pack them for the safest delivery. And once you receive the trial shipment, we will stay in touch with you by phone and/or email, answering your questions and offering guidance as you make a decision.

Once you have selected the instrument of your choice, you simply return the other instruments and we will charge you for the one that you keep. ( A return shipping ticket will be included with the parcel.)

The return date is calculated to allow for the seven-day trial period plus shipping times to and from AMADEUS MUSIC LTD. Modest extensions of the return date may be arranged by contacting us by e-mail:

If your first selection of instruments or bows does not meet your needs for any reason, we will continue to help you in your search until we find your perfect match.

AMADEUS MUSIC LTD will mail invoices and all other appropriate sale documents after a purchase has been finalized. Any documents of provenance will be mailed separately.

We are currently the only company in New Zealand offering this convenient and practical service. That is because we are all professional musicians and understand the necessity of trying an instrument before you buy it. Because this is a service not before offered we understand that you may have further questions so please feel free to email us on our contact email and we will respond within 48 hours to your query.

We also provide repair & restoration service for bows and instruments in all price ranges, from rare, vintage instruments to student model violins, violas, cellos & basses. Email:
