Fly Try & Buy


Are you interested in purchasing a fine, hand-made cello but are nervous about doing it online? We have the perfect solution for you at Linda West Cellos. We are so positive that you will find a Master Level cello in our shop that you will absolutely adore that we are willing to reimburse your flight up to $300.

Here's how it works: If you fly into Los Angeles or Santa Barbara, and then come to our shop to try instruments, we will reimburse your ticket price UP to $300 IF you purchase an instrument.** By coming to our store, you can also try out multiple bows, check out all our different case options, and take advantage of our on-the-spot financing with Synchrony Financial.

Plan on staying in Santa Barbara for a couple days to allow enough time to try the instrument out, and for some sight-seeing in our beautiful town. We can provide recommendations for places to stay, good places to eat, and interesting stuff to do. Be sure to make an appointment on my calendar for your cello shopping spree before booking your flight. Make a note that you will be flying in.

**Fly, Try & Buy ticket reimbursement is only eligible on new and used cellos priced at $8,000 and above. Instruments in our shop on consignment are not eligible for this promotion. Our standard, cello trial period does not apply. All sales are final. If you need the instrument shipped to you, you will pay the shipping charges. Flight reimbursement requires us to have a copy of your ticket at the time of the sale. We will either deduct $300 from the price of the instrument, or we will mail you a check within 1 week, whichever you prefer.
