Instruments can either be rented monthly or annually.  All rented instruments are set up in our shop (not factory set up) by Luthier Michael Montero.  They feature Wittner tailpieces, ebony fittings, Tomastik Alphayue, D'Addario Ascente, Warchal Karneol, Jargar, Kaplan, or Helicore strings, quality cases and carbon fiber bows.   All repairs, with the following exceptions, are included in the lease rate except for over tightened bows, broken strings, severe damage to cases beyond normal wear and tear, and any damage due to negligence will not be covered (example: you leave the instrument on the floor and someone steps on it).  Please note that under normal use and when properly taken care of, repairs occur quite infrequently. Circumstances beyond the control of the student will be taken into account when evaluating a rented instrument that needs repair.
