What Makes Our Violins Better Than Others

We take exceptional care when selecting violins for our hire service, we only pick violins for hire that we know will be a joy for our customers to play and will help speed them along their learning journey. Once selected, our hire violins, no matter what the size, are all set up meticulously by our luthier to our professional high standard. Within the setup, we check, adjust and refit as appropriate, the pegs including the holes they fit into in the peg box, the top nut, the bridge, the fingerboard and the sound post. Last but not least we always fit good strings. If you are looking to rent or hire any other instruments, you can view this here.

Why Our Violin Hire Is Great For All

For Adult Beginners

  • As an adult beginner, you will benefit from being able to start on an excellently set up violin without the large outlay needed to buy one of these violins outright.
  • Our violins have been correctly set up by our luthier that makes them easier to play and quicker to learn with.

For Parents with Young Violinists

  • Parents benefit from our hire service as do their budding Violinists.
  • For a fixed price per month, your child will always have the correct size violin to play, without the headache of having to buy and sell violins as they grow.
  • We will swap free of charge the violin that you’re hiring for the next size up as and when your child is ready, meaning they’ll never have to just make do.
  • Your young violinist will progress with much more ease and at a faster pace with a well set up instrument, that’s the correct size for them. We treat all of our violins to an excellent set up no matter what the size.
