Day Violins Rental credit is a better deal than “rent-to-own.” As your student musician grows in experience and education they will need bigger sizes and better quality. If your student is stuck with an inferior instrument it could stall their progress. Our rental credit is 100 % of the base amount of rent (before taxes and maintenance fees) for the first year of rent and 50% of any year after. You can use that amount toward the purchase of any instrument at Day Violins.
