Trust The Pros

DO NOT (we cannot emphasize this enough!) buy a cheap instrument from Amazon or Ebay. They look good in the pictures, but these Violin-Shaped-Objects (VSO's as some people like to call them) will do nothing but discourage you or your child from learning a string instrument.

Easy Communication

Don’t Sweat It

Text, email, phone- we're available however you prefer to communicate and in most cases, can have an instrument in your hands within days.

In-Depth Market Knowledge

Available When You Need Us

Driven by quality, we’ve been at it long enough to know how important it is to provide top notch rentals and real customer service. When you need help or guidance on which product to choose, trust the real pros. We're happy to speak with your private teacher if needed and can also provide referrals for lessons.
