Why Rent from The Sound Post?


We choose the finest student instruments available for our rental program. Once in our shop, each rental instrument undergoes an extensive custom setup by a professional violin repairer.

As part of our custom setup, instruments are fit with parts of the highest quality including: bridges by Aubert, tailpieces by Wittner, and strings by Jargar, Larsen, Pirastro, or Thomastik. Our setup ensures that your instrument will have the best sound possible.

Customer Service

The Sound Post is staffed by experienced musicians and teachers so we are always sensitive to the needs of beginning string players.


We don't keep a separate stock of dilapidated rental instruments. We select each rental instrument from our extensive collection of new and used instruments for sale. As a result, we are confident that we will be able to provide you with a rental instrument that is well suited to your needs.

Rental Credit

Our Rental Purchase program offers clients the opportunity to apply 50% of their rental payments, without limitation, towards the purchase of a like instrument of that size or larger. Most of our customers take advantage of this policy to purchase a violin, viola, cello or bass from our substantial collection of quality instruments.
