Knoxville Fine Violins offers a simple, affordable rental program that provides players of all ages an opportunity to learn on high quality, professionally set up, and professionally maintained instruments.
An inferior instrument that hasn't been professionally set up is often the largest impediment to learning an instrument. The hidden costs involved in cheap, internet violins often make them a bad purchase, and poorly maintained instruments from music stores without an in-house, professionally trained luthier can prove to be a frustration that most children as well as adults will be unlikely to overcome. At Knoxville Fine Violins we have invested a considerable amount of time vetting instrument models to find high quality, good sounding, affordable instruments for our rental program. We then spend the time to ensure that each instrument is set up to the highest standards.
About Our Rentals
Free Maintenance and Protection
Accidents happen, and we understand. We provide free maintenance and protection for each rental we send out. You will not be responsible for accidental damage or theft (provided there is a police report), nor will you be responsible for having to replace broken strings, bows, or cases. If your rental instrument needs maintenance, it is as simple as bringing it in, and we will service it in a timely fashion so you can get back to playing quickly. If your rental needs replacing, we will exchange it immediately, provided there is a suitable replacement in stock.
At Knoxville Fine Violins, we are dedicated to making the rental program as advantageous as possible for our customers. We believe that every aspect of our rental program distinguishes us from our competitors, but we are especially confident that our rental credit policy makes us distinct among our competitors. That is why we apply 100% of your core rental fees towards 65% of the purchase price of any instrument in the shop (excepting consignments).
Cost and Payment Plans
We are committed to offering the best quality instruments at the fairest price which extends to our rental instruments as well. Below is a list of rental plans we offer. In an effort to go green, all billing is paperless. Rental fees are assessed quarterly (every 3 months) and automatically charged to the credit card number on file.
