Our Standard Violin Rentals are of a higher quality than standard instruments from other rental programs. These instruments are handmade and have everything that a beginner, amateur, or intermediate players needs to be successful. 

Each instrument is carefully inspected in our workshop and setup by our expert luthiers to ensure the right balance of tone and playability. Professional quality strings and real horsehair on bows is used on all our instruments.

The Long Island Violin Shop rents instruments on a month-to-month basis, with a three month minimum rental period. Your payment of $96.00 - $114.00 (depending on instrument size) covers the first three months of your rental contract. Due when the instrument is rented, there are no further contracts or obligations beyond the first three months.

At the start of the 4th month, your credit/debit card will automatically be charged monthly. We accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Paypal and Debit right here on our website. Your contract automatically extends after the initial period, until you decide to return the instrument. It couldn't be easier!

There's no bottom-of-the-barrel stock in our rental program. We firmly believe that every student deserves to learn on an instrument that will enhance their experience, not hamper progress.

The Total Monthly Fee is comprised of:

Monthly Rent Fee of $24 or $30 (depending on size): The fee for use of our instrument and bow.
Protection Plan of $8: Our Maintenance and Protection Plan is automatically included in the price of every rental instrument. The program features zero-deductible coverage against light damage, including broken stings, bridges, bows, etc.

We gladly ship rental violins and violas nationwide. We do not ship rental cellos or basses (you may pick these rentals up at either of our three retail locations). Renters are responsible for all outgoing and return shipping costs. Please review our shipping rates here. The Protection Plan does not cover shipping for damaged instruments, bows, or cases, and does not cover instruments, bows, or cases in the custody of shipping companies or delivery services.

* If you are having a rental shipped to you, please be sure to order the correct size as you will be responsible for return shipping costs.

As mentioned above, renters have no obligation beyond the non-refundable 3-month initial rental period; you may return an instrument at any time without penalty. Instruments returned early do not have rental fees pro-rated. We depend on prompt payment to keep our fees reasonable for all our clients. A 5 day grace period is allowed for late payments, after which a $11 monthly fee is assessed.
