Why you should lease your instrument from Beardens: We have over 30 years experience and are degreed and trained luthiers. We make, repair and restore instruments and lease only high quality instruments at one price. We do not have different price levels for lower quality instruments. Your teacher has qualifications to instruct violin just as your instrument should only be serviced by a formally trained Luthier.

We carry a complete line of fine European violins, violas, and cellos in all sizes. All instruments are professionally adjusted in our repair department located on our premises.

All outfits include case, bow with horsehair, four fine tuners, dominant strings, and rosin.

Customer should insure the lease instrument for all risk, no deductible. This type of insurance can be added to your homeowners insurance by “scheduling”. Your insurance agent can help you with this.

Purchase Option
We allow a full two years lease credit to be applied to the purchase of an instrument. You can select from:

  • The one you are currently leasing
  • A new instrument
  • A fine handmade instrument

Your lease credit must be used when you close your lease. If you purchase an instrument from us and you need to upsize, we will allow 100% trade-in toward the next size less any damage. This 100% trade-in guarantees your investment and relieves you of the trouble of selling the instrument. This trade-in may also be applied to a fine handmade instrument at 100% credit. Normal wear and tear is accepted.
