Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the warranty on your string instruments?
A. All of our string instruments carry a full one-year warranty against defects. We only sell high quality instruments to begin with so we experience very few problems. Every Teton Music violin, viola and cello are made from premium materials like maple, spruce and ebony. We also work directly with school music teachers to make sure we are supplying instruments that meet and exceed their standards. 

Q. Aren't there cheaper instruments we can purchase online? 

A. Possibly, but cheaper instruments usually mean low grade materials quality, poor craftsmanship and inferior quality. Many discount instruments are made of very low grade materials, poor craftsmanship, and very poor durability. We have seen schools bring these low-quality instruments in our repair shop when they break, only to be disappointed to hear the instrument is such poor quality it cannot be repaired.

Students who play on these cheap instruments are much more likely to become frustrated while playing and drop out of orchestra.

Q. What if a string rental breaks or is stolen?
A. No problem. Our Maintenance and Theft Protection program covers the repair of most accidental damage to the instrument and also replaces the instrument if it is stolen. There is a small monthly fee for this service, but it’s worth every penny.
