Lane & Edwards offers a competitive and affordable rent-to-own program for your student. Lane & Edwards works with many area schools to supply instruments, bows, and repair services for those instruments. We are a trusted provider of high-quality violin-family stringed instruments, and we do all setup work in-house. This way, we can ensure that everything that leaves our store is ready to play at its full potential and offer the budding music student the best tools available.

Rentals are priced by instrument and size. Most of our rentals are of student instruments, but step-up rentals are also available. Ask us about premium upgrades and options!

100% of the first year of rent and 50% of all subsequent months rent applies to the purchase of any Lane & Edwards Instrument at any time (consignments not included). For example, a violin rental will accrue a credit of $168 in the first year and an $84 credit each subsequent year. Prices for rentals are listed below:


  • All sizes of violin or viola up to 13” (3/4): $18 + tax and maintenance
