Lease and Play: Trial Period For You and Your Cello:

Are you considering whether you want to make your dream come true and play a stringed instrument?  Would you like to fulfill someone else’s wish? If you’re not quite sure, you can lease an instrument (bow and case included) from me.  You can return the set at any time or trade it in for another instrument of different size or price range.  The lease price is based upon the respective quality level of the cello, violin, viola, or contrabass. You may, at any time during the three-year lease period, buy the instrument and I will credit the amount already paid through lease to the purchase price of that or another instrument. Interested?  As my gift to you, a new cake of premium rosin will be included.

Violoncelli:

1/32 (children’s size) through 4/4 (full size). The lease price is computed on the basis of a complete cello set (instrument, bow, and case).  All cellos are made of solid wood. Regardless of price, all instruments are optimally tuned and have the best possible tone for their level of quality. Each bow respectively matches the level of each instrument.
For instruments whose retail price (tax included) is more than 3.000 euros, the rental fee will be calculated at one percent of the price of the instrument per month.

Price from Rent per month Quality level
2.500,00 25,00 amature level, good quality

I also offer violins, violas, and contrabasses for lease. 

Violins and Violas:

1/16 (children’s size) through 4/4 (full size).  The lease price is computed on the basis of a complete violin or viola set (instrument, bow, and case).  Regardless of price, all instruments are optimally set up and have the best possible tone for their level of quality. Each bow respectively matches the level of each instrument.
