Rental Instruments

We rent quality violins, violas,  cellos and basses in all sizes. Our instruments have been professionally set up for ease of playing and optimum tone quality. The soundpost has been properly fit, the bridge is properly cut, tuning pegs work smoothly and the tailpiece includes fine tuners.  You may change sizes at any time during the rental period at no additional cost.

Our shop is based in downtown Lafayette, and we serve customers throughout Louisiana, including Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, Alexandria and New Orleans. We can also ship your rental violin or viola.


We offer free shipping of rental violins and violas in Louisiana. We ship out of state for a modest shipping and handling fee. Call 337-534-4436 or send us a message for details. We do not ship cellos or basses at this time, but rental cellos and basses are available at our shop in downtown Lafayette.
