We offer our customers two levels of rentals. Each includes the instrument, case, bow, and a cake of rosin.

Protege Level

Our Protege rentals are perfect for beginners and those looking for a great sounding instrument at an affordable price. 

Artist Level

Our Artist rentals are ideal for advanced players and those seeking a superior sound. In addition to being a higher level instrument than our Protege option, these instruments come with upgraded strings, case, and bow.

Yearly Option

Customers have the option to pre-pay for 10 months of rent to receive 2 months for free! Additionally, yearly rental contracts do not require the 3 month deposit.

Rental Credit

When you rent with us, 50% of your monthly rental payments accrues as rental credit. This credit can be used to purchase an instrument. You are not limited to purchasing your rental. You may choose any like-kind instrument in our inventory (exceptions apply).

Protection Plan

Monthly protection for Protege rentals is optional, but highly recommended. Protection for Artist rentals is required and built into the price. With monthly protection, you will only need to pay a relatively small copay in the event that your rental instrument sustains repairable or non-repairable damage. In other words, you will never pay more than these amounts, no matter the damage. See below for copay amounts.
