Here are three things you should know before renting an instrument from Day Violins:
1. Student instruments are available starting at $17.95/mo. You won’t find any “gotcha” billing with Day Violins, but just to make sure you understand the ins and outs we want to explain just a couple of things. First, there is a two month minimum rental time frame to start the rental agreement. After the two months, billing is conducted on a monthly basis. In order to not be charged for the next month you must return your instrument prior to the 1st or the 15th (depending on the day your rental takes place.) We do not offer refunds if you do not return your instrument PRIOR to that date. If you return it on the 1st or the 15th and you have already been charged we do not refund that month.
2. Our Strings to Scroll Maintenance Plan acts as protection for your rental instrument. Strings to Scroll Maintenance Plan fees start at $5/mo. We cover accidental damage, wear and tear on the instrument, bow, and case. It does not include negligent damage. We always offer it as part of our rental contract or feel free to contact us for more information.
3. Day Violins rental credit is a better deal then “rent-to-own.” As your student musician grows in experience and education they will need bigger sizes and better quality. If your student is stuck with an inferior instrument it could stall their progress. Our rental credit is 100 % of the base amount of rent (before taxes and maintenance fees) for the first year of rent and 50% of any year after. You can use that amount toward the purchase of any instrument at Day Violins.
