Our equity program is second to none! It allows all rental payments (excluding maintenance & tax) to apply towards purchase of new, used or step-up instruments without any time limits. Also, your equity is never capped. No chain store, superstore or general music store can match our program. Only a violin shop can provide the quality of service and inventory you will need. If you are considering another rental agency, check their policy closely. A few dollars saved in the beginning may end up being very costly in the end.
~ Major credit card or debit card required for rental
~ Month to month rental after initial two month contract
~ Step-up strings for all of our rentals!
Our standard rentals are good quality European instruments which are excellent for beginning students. We make sure that every instrument is gone over by one of our craftsmen before they are put into our inventory. We now use only Thomastic Vision step up strings on all of our standard violins to ensure that they sound (and play) as good as possible. A well set-up instrument will greatly enhance the learning process for students.

When you upgrade into an intermediate rental, your account maintains any rental credit accrued on your standard rental.
