What We Do
We provide competitively priced violin outfits (1/8 to 3/4 size) each consisting of a traditionally crafted violin, professionally set up and adjusted to precise, correct measurements and with enhanced quality strings, a well-balanced, natural hair bow and light-weight case. A free annual check/service is included to keep the instrument in optimal condition.
Why choose us?
Choosing a violin rental outfit for most is a bit of a “hit-or-miss” task. As a provider of school and private instrumental tuition for over 30 years we have seen it all: students arriving full of enthusiasm for their first lesson with a hired instrument - or a “bargain” bought online - which stretches the definition of ‘violin’ to new limits. The consequences are all too predictable: an instrument that can’t hold its tuning from one lesson to the next, makes a poor sound and is difficult to manipulate will hamper progress, sap motivation and then, all too often, cause the child to lose heart and give up. Learning to play a stringed instrument is challenging enough without the constraints of a poor quality instrument and bow. All of this is avoidable when you rent from a specialist provider with the expertise and experience required to do the job to a commendable standard.
What you need to know before hiring from us
A deposit of £25 is payable with the initial monthly rental payment of £8.00 for which you’ll be asked to set up a regular bank ‘standing order’. Cheque payments are welcome in which case payment for 4 months in advance is required. Your contract is terminated at the end of the rental month in which an outfit is returned. The minimum contract duration is 3 months. You will be given our full Terms and Conditions document when you receive you outfit.
Upsizing from a smaller to a larger instrument - up to and including 3/4 size - is free of charge and subject to availability.
Collection/return in person is by appointment only. Any cost agreed for postal delivery and cost of returning an outfit is the responsibility of the hirer.
Our guarantee to you
If you - or your child’s teacher - are not completely satisfied with our product and you return it to us within 30 days in the condition in which it was delivered to you, we will offer to either adjust the instrument to your satisfaction or refund you in full. Simples!
