String Instrument Rentals


  • The beauty of string instruments is that while the ‘family’ is the same, each and every instrument feels, sounds and plays differently.

  • If you want your child to try more than one instrument before your purchase, or you're not quite ready to invest in a purchase yet, we have a rental option.

  • With generous terms and excellent quality instruments, our rental program is ideal for the new beginner or those wishing to indulge their desire to learn a string instrument. Be quick to take advantage of our rental program as stocks are limited. We do offer a waiting list if stocks are unavailable.

  • *This is not a rent-to-buy program. Strings Embassy offers a limited number of hand-selected instruments for rental customers. However we offer an option in the first 3 months of renting, you can decide to buy a new instrument or the one you are renting and your payments will be credited towards the purchase. This offer is valid only in the first 3 months of renting the instrument.

  • Instruments we offer for rental programs are selected and professionally suited to your needs please check
