The Basics

  • We rent the highest quality rental instruments in Northwest Arkansas, which have all been approved/recommended by all public schools and private teachers in our region. Our instruments sound the best and are easiest to play of any rental instruments available in Northwest Arkansas.
  • Violins rent for $20-$30/month, violas for $30, cellos for $40-$50, and all basses for $65.
  • Maintenance and insurance are included FREE with your rental.
  • We have no hidden fees. There are no fees for switching to a different instrument, “upsizing” your instrument, or returning your instrument. The monthly rental price listed above is all-inclusive.
  • Ours is a month-to-month program. Cancel anytime, with no additional charge.
  • We have the most generous rent-to-own program in Northwest Arkansas. 80% of your total rental payments may be applied to the purchase of any instrument in our shop, including our intermediate and professional-level instruments.
  • We rent violins, violas, cellos, and basses in all sizes, from 1/32 violins to full adult size basses – so your child will never “grow out” of our rental program when she is ready for a full size instrument.
  • We are the only music shop in Northwest Arkansas owned and operated by a professionally trained luthier – so your instrument will be set up to the highest standards and cared for well.
  • Payment is handled through our automatic billing service, which processes payments via automatic bank draft on the first day of the month.
