Better quality instrument rental from supportive, knowledgeable violin makers is available from the two violin shops below. If you’re renting for a child, you might consider instrument purchase rather than rental because when your child outgrows his/her instrument, Jeff and Sten will buy it back if you purchase the next bigger size from them. The buy-back amount can be as high as 75% of the original price if the instrument is still in “like new” condition. Both Jeff and Sten are super-good guys to do business with. They really care that you get the best possible instrument for your money.
