Our rental program provides students with high quality instruments at affordable monthly rates

Our rental instruments are specially made for us from high quality tonewoods: spruce and maple. They are expertly set up in-house by our skilled luthiers and carefully maintained between usages. We offer three different rental tiers so you can find the right level instrument for your level of playing. Click the button below to learn more about our rental instrument options.

When you rent from us, you accrue Rental Credit. Your Rental Credit is calculated by multiplying your monthly rental fee (not including insurance) by the number of months you have been renting. Your credit can be used towards the purchase of ANY instrument of the same type (violin, viola, cello, or bass), making it much more flexible than the traditional rent-to-own model.

The percentage of your credit that you may apply towards your instrument purchase is based on the price of the instrument. See our rental credit matrix below to understand how the price of the instrument you would like to buy determines the percentage of your credit you may use.
