We do our best to ship all orders within 24 to 48 hours. Many violins are set up specially to the players personal requests. Since each instrument is play tested individually, it is a bit time consuming, and not something that I like to rush.
All items are carefully packaged for safe travel, and fully insured. We use a shipping brokerage who always finds us the least expensive option available that day, and we do not add any “handling” charges to that. Many companies provide free shipping, but they also have a large markup on what they sell. We are a small business, we import directly from the makers, and we pass on that savings to you with the lowest prices. Our Bravura House brand is always at least 50-65% less than other brands.
