The Midwest String Rentals mission—to offer the highest quality stringed instruments for rent in the Chicago area at affordable prices—is stronger than ever. There is a lot that sets MSR apart from other string instrument rental companies:
- We offer consistently high quality violins, violas and cellos. Even though these instruments cost the company more, we will not compromise when it comes to delivering quality and functionality to our customers!
- Our professional workshop sets up and maintains our instruments in-house to the highest standards, so our instruments look and sound great and give students the best chance at success in their musical studies.
- The sales staff includes professional string players and teachers. Drawing on the expertise of our sales staff and repair staff, we can answer virtually any question a string player (or parent of a budding string player) might have.
- Our rental rates are affordable and we offer a liberal equity-building program against future purchases.
- We maintain an extensive teacher referral network all over the Chicago area.
Midwest String Rentals is there for those who are seeking rental violins, violas, and cellos that consistently look good, function well, and give string students the best possible chance for success in their musical endeavors. We enjoy what we do, are proud of what we offer, and are eager to meet you whenever you come in. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
