Monthly Rentals

Each instrument is carefully set up and maintained in our shop to allow each student the opportunity to play on a properly set up outfit.

Rental equity is accrued throughout the entire term of the monthly rental. Our rental customers are not locked into buying the instrument he or she is renting. Instead, The Violin Shop allows accrued equity to be applied to any instrument the same price point of the rental instrument or higher.

All Rentals include FREE maintenance, minor repairs and adjustments.

Size changes are available at anytime during the rental period at no extra cost unless the larger instrument rents at a higher rate. (i.e. 3/4 to 4/4 or an upgrade to a premium rental)

Premium step-up rentals are also available for all instruments. Premium rental rates are higher and based on a percentage of the purchase price.

Rates are subject to instrument availability at the time of rental (lower priced rentals tend to rent first).
