Renting  an Instrument

Renting an instrument can offer many advantages.  If you are not sure if you or your child will enjoy playing a stringed instrument, a short term rental contract (min 3 months) can be the perfect solution.  Also, for a younger musician who will regularly need a larger instrument, rental is an easy solution.  Every instrument can be exchanged for a larger one of the same price without having to change the rental contract.

If at any point you decide to buy the instrument you rent, your deposit and 3 months’ rent (-VAT) will be deducted from the purchase price.

All rentals require a deposit of 1/3rd of the value of the instrument, which will be refunded in full if the instrument returns in good condition to the shop.

For college students, we have a limited number of older instruments available to rent.
