Violin Rental

Why Renting Makes Sense

Usually, there are instances where renting a violin makes more sense. First, your child is young enough and needs a violin smaller than ¼”. Today, there are manufacturers or sellers provides credits for upgrades in size on your future purchase. Also, there is still uncertainty in your child about which instrument they want to play. The last instance on why it is better to rent is that some instrument retailers offer rent-to-own programs as part of their offerings.

When you are thinking about buying a violin too large for your child to carry but at least can grow into- well don’t. That will be a huge mistake that can block your child’s progress and enjoyment in the instrument. The inconvenience makes playing difficult and uncomfortable, at the same time can bring injuries into your child. In situations like these, it is best to rent a violin. Be patient to wait until your child is physically ready to have his own violin.

Some seller provides discounts or other cost-saving initiatives for upgrades or future purchases. Thus, renting a violin and upgrading wouldn’t be as much of a financial risk as buying a student-sized instrument and upgrading later.

How to measure the perfect violin size?

You have to be certain to order the size you need since you will be responsible for the shipping charges for all returns, as well as for the shipment of the corrected size.

Measure as if you are holding a violin.  Get the length from the middle of the left palm to the neck, with left arm and hand fully extended out perpendicular to the body.

Violins come in different sizes: 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/16, and 1/32. Among these, 4/4 (full size) is the biggest and 1/32 size is the smallest. Most adults use a full-size violin.

To measure the most appropriate violin size for you, you need to know the length between your neck and the middle of your left-hand palm or left wrist.  This can be achieved when your hand is fully extended and raised perpendicular to your body, like holding a violin. Most teachers prefer students to use the length from the neck to the wrist for measurement rather of the neck to mid-palm approach. The violin size determined by the neck/mid-palm approach would be the size that is more convenient for students to hold. The students should use the violin size determined by the neck/mid-palm approach because this is the biggest size the student should use.
