Instrument Rentals

Are you looking to rent an instrument? Rentals are popular with our beginner customers and are excellent value for parents of small children as the instrument can be changed when a larger size is required. To make sure our customers have the best possible start at an affordable rate, we’ve sourced a high quality supply of violins, violas and cellos, especially to build up our rental fleet. With our in-house set up and market research, we are confident that we have the best rental program in the UK.

Rental Violins

We have found an ideal range of instruments from a French supplier which meets all our requirements for a beginner’s instrument. Our rental instruments are specially selected and set up in our workshop to give the student, parent and teacher the assurance of a high quality instrument.

Rental Cellos

Our cellos are supplied by a French company and based on a Mirecourt model that was successful in the 1900’s. The value of the outfit is £1750. These are extremely well made instruments which we set up to a high level in our in-house workshop.

Rental Violas

Our violas are the best student models that we have seen, and start from 28cm (equivalent to a 1/4 size violin). These may be a mixture of models depending on the size. We source the best instrument for each size.

We rent our violins (with a retail value of £650) as a complete outfit including bow and case for £17.50 per month (plus £50 deposit).
