Our rental program is geared to each individual, we'll help you pick out your own instrument, bow, and case. Also, for violin and viola players we take extra time to be sure the chin rest and shoulder rest are comfortable for the player. Everyone that works here has repair training and is a player, so our instruments have fantastic set ups which makes them easier to play and keep in tune. We'd love for you to come into the shop and hear the difference in person!
