Seattle-Issaquah Rentals

At Hammond Ashley Violins, we firmly believe that to ensure a student's success it is extremely important to have an instrument that is easy to play and produce a good sound. Violin family instruments require expert setup and adjustment to facilitate this, which is why it is important to work with a local shop that can address the specific issues of playability, sound, and maintenance. Our rental instruments are set up to the same standards as our instruments for sale to make learning as enjoyable as possible. Our rentals are very good instruments with the highest quality strings and setup. All rentals include a high quality case, good bow, and rosin. Violin and Viola include a shoulder rest. Celli include a slip stop for the end pin. Violins through celli include a German Wittner brand tailpiece with fine tuners.
