Instrument Rentals


Congratulations on your decision to play Violin, Viola, Cello or Bass!

You will be learning and growing in many areas, including musical knowledge, problem solving, in addition to gaining confidence. A new world awaits you and we are thrilled to be a part of that. Let us help as you delve into the challenging and satisfying life of a musician. We are happy to offer superior hand made instruments at great prices. Our friendly staff will walk you through the basics of instrument care. We will measure your child to ensure he/she is outfitted correctly & provide maintenance for the instrument you rent. We are always available for any questions or concerns you may have. We also work closely with teachers to ensure every is happy.

Wm Mason II Violin Shop is a full service shop dedicated to musicans of all ages and abilities. We support all of your string needs including repairs and restoration, supplies/accessories, and rental instruments.

We also have a wide variety of hand made instruments for sale. We have TWO full time violin makers on staff to make adjustments and repairs as needed. If your rental needs to be left at the shop for repairs, we will provide a loaner instrument so no lessons or practices are missed.

Wm Mason Violin II Shop is partnered with Strings without Borders, the educational outreach program of the Rappahannock POPS that provides opportunities for kids that cannot afford to rent or own. If your child is interested in learning music, but it is not in your budget, we lend instruments out for the school year. We are accepting instrument and monetary donations, and can provide appraisals for the donations.
