In the Philadelphia area for a short time, and need an instrument? Mount Airy Violins & Bows offers short-term rentals.
Short-term rentals are limited to a total of 4 consecutive weeks. They accrue no credit, but allow players to rent any non-consigned instrument of their choice.
Short-term rentals are $50/week for violin and viola, and $100/week for cello. We also ask for a deposit of $250 for violin and viola, and $500 for cello upon pickup of the instrument. The deposit is fully refundable, less any necessary charges for repairs to the instrument. Rental fees are deducted from the deposit upon return of the instrument. Deposit refunds are returned via check.
While the renter may pay the deposit using any payment method, they are required to provide a valid credit card number to be kept on file for the duration of the rental.
Bows can be rented for a flat rate with no deposit. (Cello: $40, VLN/VLA: $30)
