The following guide contains all the information you need to rent a Violin.
Renting from Rent My Instrument gives students and their parents an affordable, flexible program that can grow and change with students as they explore learning an instrument. Rent My Instrument features:
Low Monthly Rental Payments Apply Towards Purchase
All of our Violins are set up on a month-to-month rent-to-own program. You have the convenience of being able to return the instrument at any time and end your contract with no further obligation. Throughout the rental period, you are building equity towards an intermediate or professional quality instrument.
Assurance Of A Clean Instrument In Perfect Playing Condition
When your Violin needs a simple tune-up or an issue appears that requires fixing, you'll have easy access to those repair services through a network of stores and local affiliates. Violin repairs can be costly, but through Rent My Instrument, repairs and maintenance is covered.
Low Monthly Payments
Renting allows you to choose manageable monthly payments for a high quality beginner instrument and your payments accrue towards ownership. Rent My Instrument provides options for payment dates, payment amounts, and convenient auto-pay options.
Rental exchanges allow the player to change instruments at any time and free of charge. This is important because kids change their minds frequently, and being able to exchange the instrument will keep them interested in music longer, which is the main goal.

Violin Care Tips
Just like any other instrument, the secret to keeping your rented violin performing its best is to make sure it’s well taken care of. To give your violin the TLC it deserves, check out these basic tips.
- Tighten the bow. Look for a screw below the frog, and adjust this to make sure the bow hairs are taut.
- Rub the bow hairs gently with rosin. The easiest and most effective way to do this is by running the hairs slowly back and forth against the rosin.
- Make sure the chin rest is properly adjusted.
- Use a soft cloth to clean the violin strings. Look for any built-up rosin on the strings and ensure it's removed.
- Loosen the bow hairs before putting the bow away. This will prevent them from becoming overstretched in storage.
- Always keep the violin in its case when not in use, and avoid storing it in a place that's too dry or too humid.
