At JC Strings, we believe the quality of the rental instrument is a crucial factor in the student's ability to learn to play any instrument. We recently invested in a large inventory of brand new rental instruments to go along with our new retail store. Our philosophy is to invest in higher quality instruments, replace the factory strings and bridges, and finely tune each instrument for all our rental students. We have three levels of instruments for rental, all of which undergo the same professional setup.

Advanced violins, violas, and celli are available for the serious performer which are priced according to the make & model chosen.
All JC strings Rentals can be exchanged for a different size as the student need arises. Rental fees up to 18 months can be applied to the purchase of a new intermediate level and above instruments. JC Strings reserves 5% of all rental fees for a grant program, designed to support local music programs.
Standard Rentals are designed for an advancing student that wants an even higher grade instrument. Standard rentals include new German strings prior to the rental period. Standard rental charges are $45 per month with an optional $8 per month Loss Damage Waiver. These instruments are generally rented month to month with auto renewal until cancelled. They can be cancelled at any time during the school year.
