Rental Instruments

From the beginning student to the advancing musician, Seman Violins has rental instruments to suit all players. Our rental program is a great option for those students just starting out, or who are not quite ready to purchase. The rental includes a high quality student instrument, bow, rosin, and case. We also offer purchase credit as a way for rental customers to use the money put towards the rental, as a discount on an instrument purchase.

Quarterly Rental Fees
Type Size Terms
Violin & Viola All Sizes $75 for 3 months including insurance.
Cello All Sizes $120 for 3 months including insurance.


Rental Outfit:

Each rental outfit includes instrument, bow, case or bag and rosin. Any rental outfit may be exchanged for another size outfit at any time. Any change in rental fees will be effective at the beginning of the next rental period.

Purchase Credit:

The rental amount, less insurance fees and late payment charges, will be credited to the customer upon receipt of payment. 100% of the rental credit may be applied to up to 30% of the retail price of any instrument or bow purchased from SEMAN VIOLINS. Rental payments received more than 30 days after the due date will not be credited. The purchase credit option will be available for a period of 30 days after termination or suspension of the rental account. Rental credit can only be applied towards similar instruments (i.e. violin rental money goes towards violin/bow purchase).


Charges for the three month rental period include an insurance fee of $15.00 for violin or viola, $25.00 for Cello, and $40 for Bass. The instrument will be fully covered against fire, theft or accidental damage. Replacement of strings, bow rehair and other normal maintenance will also be provided under this policy. Note: Damage to the instrument resulting from negligence, malicious abuse, loss or unauthorized repair will void this contract and the rental customer will be responsible for the cost of repair or replacement of the instrument. A $250 fee will be charged for catastrophic damage to cellos.  A $150 fee will be charged for catastrophic damage to violins and violas. A $500 fee will be charged for catastrophic damage to Basses.  Any damage caused by adhesives is not covered by insurance. Instruments and bows are not insured by us if they are shipped or taken on an airplane.  Instruments and bows are not insured by us if they are left in an unattended vehicle.
