Rental Program

This is How it Works:

  • Select an appropriately sized instrument, preferably with your child present.
  • Complete the rental/purchase agreement using a valid photo ID and major credit card.
  • Pay a deposit plus the first month’s rent and then you’re all set. The deposit is equivalent to 2 month’s rent. (cash, check, Visa, Mastercard and Discover are all welcome)
  • All payments apply toward purchase and you may trade toward a larger size or upgrade instrument at any time. There is no obligation to purchase, you can just rent if you like.
  • Damage Protection Coverage is available at an additional fee to protect against accidental breakage of the instrument or bow. (theft, willful damage/destruction or mysterious disappearance are not covered).
