Bowed instrument rental

In 2018, I had the opportunity to take over Bert Boon’s bowed instrument rental service and I am thrilled to take up this new endeavour. As of now, all rental contracts have been transferred and all servicing, exchange or returning of rented instruments will be handled by me. The conditions of your contract remain the same and I will continue the level of expertise and service that all clients were accustomed to from Bert Boon.

In many situations, hiring an instrument is a good alternative to buying, for example if you are not sure whether you have found the right instrument yet or if it needs to be exchanged for an instrument of a different size. If you decide to buy an instrument after a long term lease, you will be offered a discount.

On the internet there are many cheap instruments to be found, including new ones. I urge you to be very cautious about purchasing these instruments. More often than not you have to invest hundreds of euros to make it playable, or you end up with a wrong sized instrument. I am more than happy to provide you with proper advice without any obligation to purchase.

All rental instruments come in a case, including a cloth and a good bow and can be hired at competitive prices.
