Trade in your Wiplstix or Cricket Travel Fiddle for a Rebate on a Luthier-Built Instrument by D. Rickert

How Does the Trade-In Rebate Program Work?

The Trade-In Program is very simple. You simple order one of our travel/backpacker violins from the Don Rickert Musician Shop (www.donrickertmusicianshop.com). You will find full descriptions and photos under the Travel and Backpacker Fiddles category.

As part of the online purchase process, indicate that you will be trading in either a WiplStix or a Cricket towards the purchase. You will automatically be charged the reduced price. The rebate amounts are—

$350 rebate for the following instruments:

  • Custom Deep Body Travel Violin - Viola II
  • Ranger C Travel Violin

$175 rebate for the following instruments:

  • Frequent Flyer II Travel Violin
  • Mountaineer V Backpacker Fiddle

When should you send your WiplStix or Cricket to us?

All of our instruments have an estimated time for completion listed in their product descriptions. You should send the instrument and case (if you have one) before the estimated ship date of your new instrument.

Is this on the honor system?

Well, not exactly. We will not ship your new instrument until we get the trade-in instrument.

What shipping method should you use?

You can use FedEx, UPS or the U.S. Postal Service. It is up to you whether or not you wish to purchase insurance. You should get a tracking number, as the instrument is your property until we actually receive it.

Is there anything else?

Yes, the instrument you send us must be in playable condition and be free of cracks.
