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.
