Our Fractional Size Rental Program: This is a rent-to-own program and is designed for children. We rent all fractional sizes of violins, violas, and cellos. When you rent an instrument we choose it for you and it remains the property of The Chimneys Violin Shop until the final rental payment is made, whereupon it belongs to you -- no more rent. An instrument rental includes the instrument, case, bow and accessories.
Fractional Sized Violins and 11" & 12" Violas: All rent paid (except $75 for a used instrument, or $125 for a new instrument) is accrued as a credit towards the next size instrument your child will grow into.
13" & 14" Violas: All rent paid (except $85 for a used viola, or $135 for a new viola) is accrued as a credit towards the next size viola your child will grow into.
Fractional Size Carved and Laminated Cellos: All rent paid (except $120 for a used cello, or $170 for a new cello) is accrued as a credit towards the next size cello your child will grow into.
Full Size Instrument Rental Program: Our full size instrument rental program is reserved for beginners who need a full size instrument and works the same as our Fractional Size Rental Program. All rent paid in our Full Size Instrument Rental Program (except $125.00 for violin, $135.00 for viola, and $170.00 for cello) is accrued as a credit towards the purchase of an upgraded instrument.
Maintenance Plan: This covers any damage to the instrument (including strings), case, or bow while our instrument, bow, and case are in your possession. There is one exception: damage caused by things covered by your homeowners insurance (like storm damage, fire, theft, etc.) is not covered by our Maintenance Plan.
Interest: There are no interest charges on any rental.
