Violin hire makes perfect sense for a young player who is just starting lessons. By hiring an instrument, they start their learning journey on the correct size and a high-quality violin that will only help and encourage them to learn and play.

All our violins are eastern European, professionally set up, and have quality strings and tailpieces fitted. This ensures that our violins are easier to play, easier to tune, and better sounding.

As children grow they need to change the size to a larger violin (1/4 size in this case) until they reach a full size violin. This is simple to arrange; just contact us and we will organise delivery of the next sized violin and collection of the old violin in one visit. There are no extra charges.

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’s very difficult to tune!)
  • Check the fit and position of the soundpost. (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. (RRP £27.00-£75.00)
  • Fit a quality tailpiece with integral adjusters for ease of tuning. (RRP £16.00-£25.00)
