Insurance
Full insurance coverage is required on all rentals. Customer must insure the lease instrument all risk, no deductible. This type of insurance can be added to your homeowners insurance by "scheduling". Your insurance agent can help you with this.

Rental Fee
Rental begins on a six month basis and starts the day you pick up your instrument. After the first six months, rental may be renewed every three months. The rental fees are as follows:

Violin $90.00 for the first six months
(plus pro-ration charge, if applicable)
$45.00 every three months after
Viola $120.00 for the first six months

Exchanges
If your child needs a larger instrument while you are leasing from us, an exchange will be made at no charge.

Purchase Option
One hundred percent of your first year of rental can be applied to the purchase of an instrument. This can be the one you are currently leasing, a new instrument, or a fine handmade instrument. Your lease credit must be used when you close your lease.

If you purchase an instrument from use and your child outgrows it, we will allow eighty percent trade in toward the next size. This eighty percent trade in guarantees your investment and relieves you of the trouble of selling the instrument. This trade in may also be applied to a fine handmade instrument. Normal wear and tear is accepted.
