Student Instrument Hire Scheme

Our Student Hire Scheme has been set up to provide an alternative to purchasing an instrument outright. This scheme is particularly useful for those who have just taken up an instrument and don’t yet feel ready to commit to buying.

All our hire instruments are set up to Tim’s exacting standards and come with an oblong case and a good quality bow. Fractional sized instruments can be exchanged for a larger size at any time during the hire period.

Tim is on hand to support you with your instrument at any time during the hire period: everyone is always very welcome to pop in for help with maintaining your instrument. We stock a full range of strings and accessories and Tim is always delighted to help customers to personalise the set up to suit their needs.

The minimum term of hire is 3 months; after this time the rental cost is discounted from the full price should you decide to purchase the instrument. Alternatively, after the first 3 months it is possible to continue to hire the instrument on a month by month basis. These rolling monthly payments do not go towards the cost of buying the instrument at a later date.

At the end of the hire term, the instrument will be checked over for damage outwith normal wear and tear. Our hire instruments and bows have been selected for their sturdy and reliable properties as well as their playing qualities and such damage is very unusual!
