“Spencer was great to work with. My wife loves her new violin that I surprised her with for Christmas. I would recommend these guys to anyone!” -Brian Black
"I needed to find my instrument size and your website had the violin sizes explained perfectly! I ordered online and received my instrument shipped to me in a matter of days!" -Anthony D.
“I recently worked with Spencer and Michelle in purchasing a new violin. They were warm and welcoming. They went over the top making sure that my experience was perfect. The experience was about finding the perfect violin for me regardless of what price range that was. I was especially appreciative in how they took my non-common violin issues and worked with me. I do not believe I would have been as pleased elsewhere. The price and customer service were perfect. I left that night with the violin of my dreams and haven’t stopped smiling since. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone. I will never go elsewhere for my violin needs. Thank you!” -Sharie OwYoung

String Rentals FAQ
We've compiled a list of common questions to help you understand our string instrument rental service better. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us directly.
Q: What types of string instruments can I rent?
A: At Teton Music we offer a wide selection of string instruments available for rent. Our inventory includes violins, violas, cellos, and double basses, suitable for players of all skill levels.
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: How long can I rent a string instrument?
A: You can rent a string instrument from us on a monthly basis. We offer flexible rental terms to accommodate your needs, whether you're looking for a short-term rental or a longer commitment.

A: Yes, we offer rent-to-own options. A portion of your monthly rental fee can be applied towards the purchase of the instrument, making it easier to transition from renting to owning.
Q: What is included in the rental package?
A: Our rental packages typically include the instrument itself, a protective case, a bow (for violins, violas, and cellos), and rosin. Some packages may also include accessories like shoulder rests or endpin stops.
