Our standard rental cello is a Samuel Shen SC88. All rentals have been professionally set up for ease of playing and optimum tone quality — the soundpost has been properly fit, the bridge is properly cut, pegs work well and the tailpiece includes fine tuners. Rentals include a cello bag, bow and rosin. You may change sizes at any time during the rental period at no additional cost.

In addition to the monthly rental fee, a nominal insurance fee is charged each month to cover the cost of normal wear and tear and accidental damage. In such case, Sola Violins will repair or replace the instrument, case or bow at no cost. Replacement strings are not covered, but customers receive a 10% discount on strings for the rental instrument. A one-time rental deposit is paid with the first month's rent and will be refunded if the instrument is returned in good standing. The deposit can also be applied to the purchase of the instrument. Rentals are charged monthly to a debit or credit card kept on file
For families with two or more rentals from Sola Violins, we provide 10% off lesser priced rentals. To receive the discount, all rentals must be charged to the same debit/credit card on the same day.
100% of the first year’s rental fees and 20% of subsequent months’ rental fees can be applied toward the purchase of the rented instrument or any non-consignment instrument of the same type (violin, viola, cello, bass) and of equal or greater value. Rental credit is not general store credit.
