Violin sales and rentals.
A service that I offer to my students is that all items needed to start lessons are available to purchase at my studio. I offer quality, playable instruments cheaper than local music stores, whose employees do not always have personal violin knowledge. I take a personal interest in outfitting my students the the best violin for their personality and price range. For rent or sale are Eastman violins that have been inspected and professionally adjusted. All of these violins are rented and sold with good Thomastik Dominant strings, cases, and bows.
Do not risk buying a violin on Craigslist or Ebay that you cannot play first, compare to several other violins, or return if it is not working out. Be very wary of most of the violins under $300- $400, they will not sound good, be very hard to play, and not stay in tune.
My high quality rental violins are new, or used instruments in like-new condition.
Rental Fee is $26.99/month + tax.
Rental payment is due on the first day of each rental period and will be automatically charged on the credit card provided. 80% of rental the monthly rental fee is credited toward purchase of any like instrument. Rental credits can be acquired for up to 18 months with continuous rental. All credit is lost if rental is not renewed. Rental credits cannot be used toward the purchase of consignment instruments, upgraded bows, or accessories.
If the rented violin is not purchased, damage resulting from neglect or mistreatment, such as broken and lost parts, body damage including scratches and dents will result in extra charges for the renter. If the instrument is lost or stolen, the renter is responsible for the full price of the instrument.
Rental fees do not cover the replacement of broken strings. Broken strings must be replaced with Thomastic Dominant brand strings.
Cello and viola rentals also available.
Viola $32.99 + tax / month
Cello $44.99 + tax /month
