Hidersine Reserve - Test, Try & Buy

Hidersine Test, Try and Buy Service.

We all know that selecting a hand-crafted, unique instrument or bow is a special process. A process that requires careful handling and an experienced eye.

But as you know, it’s not always easy to get your hands on a wide selection of instruments and bows from which to choose those you wish to offer your discerning clients.

So that’s where Hidersine’s ‘Test, Try and Buy’ service can help.

Our unique testing service delivers 4 beautiful Violins and 8 bows directly to your store for you to fully appraise before deciding to purchase.

Then when you’ve selected the instruments and bows that you would like to keep, you simply let us know and we’ll collect the rest, and invoice you accordingly.

How it works:

  • Speak to your Area Sales Manager – or drop us a message using the form below – to tell us you’re interested in this service.
  • We will contact you to agree any specific requirements you have to ensure your ‘Test, Try & Buy’ delivery is appropriate to your needs.
  • We will deliver 4 Violins in one multi-case along with 8 bows.
