NEW - Mio Cannone: Instruments from world renowned makers at your fingertips. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE

EU musicians, what about owning a fine instrument without breaking the bank?

To help more musicians and students to have access to fine instruments, we have come up with the Rent to Own program.

Having a good and fine instrument at your hands is an entirely different experience; we know it is not always easy to get them. Fine Violins handcrafted by the best makers can be pricey, and it makes us question and think more about the investment.


But how does Rent to Own work?

2 – Choosing your instrument and the renting period


In this program, musicians can rent our instruments for a fixed price that will be paid monthly, depending on the instrument. You can choose between the cellos, violas, and violins selected for the program and sequentially decide to rent for 1 or 2 years. 


3 – The renting


The Rent to Own Program is a Rental of the instrument with the possibility of purchasing it. So if you choose the 1-year term, you deposit 20% of the instrument price and can rent the instrument for 12 months at a monthly payment of 2.2% of the instrument price. At the end of the period, if you decide to purchase the instrument, both the deposit and all the monthly payments you made will be discounted from the final price.

If you decide NOT to purchase the violin, you take the 20% deposit back.

Choosing for the 2-year term will work the same, but with a monthly rent of 1.8% of the instrument’s price.

For example:


An instrument is available for rent at a price of purchase of 10.000 EUR, and you choose the 1-year term renting.

20% deposit  = 2.000 EUR

12 x 2.2% Monthly rent = 220 EUR (Total – 2.640 EUR)

Total – 4.640 EUR

Then, if you decide to acquire the instrument at the end of the 1-year term. You would pay the 5.360 EUR left for the purchase.

Now, if you decide NOT to buy the instrument, you get the 2.000 EUR deposit back.


Getting the right instrument is a challenge and involves playing. Therefore, previous to buying a fine instrument is more than important for the musician to try and play the instrument. So, in that way, our program also gives you the chance to discover your plans for a musical career and what you want in terms of sound and playability.
