Buying or renting a violin?
The choice to buy / rent is not only related to financial aspects. The age of the student also plays a role. If a child has to move on to an increasingly larger violin within a few years, renting is an obvious choice. On the other hand, violins can often be traded in on reasonable conditions when purchasing another instrument.
It is possible that there is still an old, unused violin somewhere in the family. Then the choice to buy or rent does not have to be made, or not immediately. The condition is, of course, that the violin has the right dimensions for those who want to play it.see all violin makers
