What do I get for $20?
These brand-name instruments are in "like-new" condition. They have been or not previously rented and typically have been returned within a year.
  • Premier playing condition
  • Serviced to ensure the tuning pegs and fine tuners function properly
  • Any cracks have been professionally repaired


How do I choose the right size for my child?

Like any instrument, the violin must be the right size for the student if the best results are to be achieved. There are guidelines for choosing a violin based on a child's age. We strongly recommend that you consult with us or your teacher for a size recommendation before purchasing an instrument. It is highly recommendeded not to purchase a violin online, but to rent for the first three months to ensure that you or your child will get the right size and will continue with music study.
