Learn more about our Band and Orchestral Instrument Rental Program

Cassandra Strings has designed our band and orchestral rental programs with all ages and levels of ability in mind. After many years working with local school music programs we have concluded that providing a beginning student with a quality, like new, instrument creates pride in their musical studies. This is an important factor to their success and development as a musician. We have also taken a unique approach in making ownership easy. At any time, 100% of all your rental payments (excluding maintenance fees and sales tax) can be applied to the purchase of a like instrument from our shop.  All instruments, both rental and sales, are maintained by our workshop and are guaranteed to be in top playing condition.
