Rentals are our specialty! Renting is always a great option when first learning an instrument. For an affordable monthly fee, I will keep the instrument in great repair and you or your child can spend the time learning how to create beautiful music without the long term commitment of purchasing.

Set-ups

Think of this as the final step in ensuring that the instrument you purchase is ready to play. When instruments are manufactured, many of the parts such as the pegs, soundpost, and bridge are not properly fitted. I will assess the needs of your instrument at no cost and explain what service is required to get the most out of your instrument.

Bow Rehairing & Repairs

Routine maintenance of your bow is crucial to getting the best sound out of your instrument. Worn out hair stretches and breaks and also stops engaging the string. Hair that has stretched too long may also cause damage to the frog, screw, or bow stick. And a new rehair or thumb leather will keep you on top of your game.
