Rental Instruments

Quality violins, violas,  cellos and basses in all sizes are available for rent. All rentals have been professionally set up for ease of playing and optimum tone quality — the soundpost has been properly fit, the bridge is properly cut, pegs work well, and the tailpiece includes fine tuners.  You may change sizes at any time during the rental period at no additional cost.

Prices

A security deposit is required for all rentals, to be paid with the first month’s rent. If instrument is returned in good standing, the deposit will be returned. It can also be applied to the purchase of the instrument. 

Deposit is forfeited in the event of total loss of the instrument, case, or bow.

PROTECTION PLAN

A nominal insurance fee is charged each month to cover the cost of accidental damage or loss.  In such case, Sola Violins will repair or replace the instrument, case, or bow at no charge. This plan does not cover gross neglect, such as leaving the instrument in a hot car, etching into the varnish, or improper use. Replacement strings are not covered, but a 10% discount is provided to all renters purchasing rental strings.

Family discount

For families with 2 or more rentals from Sola Violins, we provide 10% off lesser priced rentals. To receive the discount, all rentals must be charged to the same debit/credit card on the same day.

Rent to Own

100% of  the first year’s rental fees and 20% of subsequent months’ rental fees can be applied toward the purchase of the rented instrument or any similar instrument in stock.  (Example: Violin rental for violin purchase, etc.) Rental credit is NOT general store credit.
