Violin hire is a great way to get started. The instrument can appear within so many genres of music and forms the backbone of an orchestra. The violin has become extremely popular in recent years and is a beautiful sounding instrument. Every violin comes from trusted sources and we do not have any low quality instruments within our hire scheme.

Most violins have a spruce top and a maple back, side and neck. Sometimes poplar and willow are used but not very often. The quality of these woods, combined with the builders who make them form either a good or bad instrument. We carefully select where our violins are sourced and years of experience has shown us that a good violin makes a good violinist!

What makes our violins different?

We don't just rent any instrument, we want to encourage the player to learn and enjoy, so we take a good quality instrument and then:

  • Adjust the height of the bridge and nut (too high and the strings are hard to press down too low and they buzz on the fingerboard)
  • Check the curve of the bridge (too shallow and you play 2 strings at once, too high and you catch the wood at the edge)
  • Check the fit of the pegs (too loose and the instrument won't stay in tune, too tight and it is very difficult to tune!)
  • Check the fit and position of the sound post. (too tight and it can crack the violin, too loose and it will keep falling down. The sound is stifled if it is positioned incorrectly.)
  • Fit high quality strings for increased sound quality (D'Addario Ascente)
  • Fit a quality tailpiece with integral adjusters for ease of tuning.
