Rental Plans: 

Basic monthly rent-to-own, Elite monthly rent-to-own, 4.5 month trial, 9 month (or school year) trial.  All plans offer optional insurance for violin, viola and cello.  Insurance for basses is required.  All plans except the Elite are for a beginning student level outfit including the instrument, case or bag, bow and rosin.  The Elite plan is for a higher quality outfit.  Cellos and basses come with soft bags but you have the option of upgrading to a hard case.  School delivery and pickup is available for the districts we work with for no extra charge.  All common accessories and music are available for purchase.  Instruments may be exchanged for the next size when needed.  Basses are available in limited quantities, size exchanges are not guaranteed.

Monthly plans are month-to-month contracts.  You are earning credit towards the purchase of an instrument but you may also return the instrument in good condition at any time.  If you purchase a smaller sized instrument and need to exchange to the next size, you may do so for 100% trade-in value within the first year after purchase.  After one year, trade-in value will be assessed on a case by case basis. 

Trial periods are special rental rates.  You may only have one special trial period contract per school year.  At the end of the trial period, you may return the instrument in good condition, purchase an instrument for a discount, or continue renting at the monthly rent-to-own rates.

You may upgrade to an Elite plan at any time subject to instrument availability.  Any credit accrued to that point will roll over to the new plan as long as there is not a break in time between the two plans. 

 

Return Policy:

If you choose to return a rental instrument at any time, you must provide written notice (e-mail is acceptable) that the instrument is being returned. Please make sure the instrument and bow are in the case and make sure that the student’s name is clearly marked on the blue case tag. If the tag has been lost, please use a replacement tag securely attached to the handle of the case and mark the student’s name as well as The Violin Doctor on it. Please include in your written notice the date of return, the student’s name, the school and whether the instrument was left in the front office or with a teacher and the teacher’s name. If these steps are not followed, your account may continue to be charged until such time as we can determine an instrument has been returned. Once an instrument is returned, thereby terminating your rental account, any credit accrued toward a future purchase is lost and cannot be reinstated.

Choosing an Instrument size - click here to view brochure for info

Selecting a Size:  To select the correct size violin or viola, measure the player’s arm length using a tape measure or yard stick.  Have the student extend their left arm straight out in front of their body.  Measure from the neck to the center of the palm.  If there is any doubt, or if your child is in between sizes, select the smaller size.  To size for a cello or bass, the best way to measure is by using an instrument for reference.  However, we can get a very good approximation of size based on the player’s height.
