Our rental instruments are set up to the same specifications as our instruments for sale. This ensures the instruments play easily for the advancing student, and are easy to tune and adjust. Rental outfits include a good case, wood bow, high quality strings, shoulder rest, and rosin. Rent credit is established which can be applied towards the purchase of the rental instrument or an upgrade.

Instruments for sale: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass.

All of our instruments are professionally set up and adjusted in our own workshop to play easily and sound their best. Our workshop is able to provide on site adjustment, service, and warranty to the instruments we sell and rent. We provide the best customer service in the business, which is why most of our business comes from referrals by satisfied private teachers and their students.
