Start playing cello this week!
Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl specializes in the rental of hand-built cellos. In our workshop there is mostly a suitable cello in the right size available for you. You can choose to pick up the cello in The Hague, but it is also possible to have the cello delivered, however only for the regions North- and South Holland. Utrecht and Flevoland. You always rent a complete set from us, consisting of: a cello, bow, pinholder, rosin and a sturdy cellobag. We have chosen to work with European cellos, because Dutch cello teachers have a preference for European instruments. In exceptional cases, we use instruments of the Leonardo or Stentor brands produced in China (only budget class). All cellos are equipped with quality strings (D'Addario, Pirastro or Thomastik) and a Wittner (D) tailpiece with integrated fine tuners.
Information cello rental
Determine size whether you are looking for an instrument for yourself, or for your son or daughter. We mostly have the right size in stock. The following sizes are available: 1/16, 1/10, 1/18, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 4/4. Don't know what size is needed? Take a look at this page to see how you can measure that. Need a different size? With us you can switch to a larger instrument free of charge. Children grow fast and therefore within a few years they often have to switch to a larger instrument several times.
We offer the possibility to include an additional insurance package when renting the instrument for an additional fee. With this package you are insured against damage and you do not have to pay extra for any maintenance on the violin (string replacement, re-hairing of the bow).
The rates shown are per month, including VAT and excluding any shipping costs. The minimum rental period is one quarter (3 months). The price behind the slash (/..) is the additional cost for our insurance package (optional). More information about the insurance package can be found under the heading insurance package. If you wish to receive the cello delivered, the payment of the first rental period must be received by Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl, as well of a copy through mail of your ID in order to assess your identity (phot0 may be covered).

A good instrument offers a challenge to the player and also has a motivating effect. That is why we choose hand-built instruments in Europe with a very consistent quality. All instruments are equipped with quality strings and accessories, and together with a good pinholder and bow, you have everything you need to start playing the cello!

- Advanced celloset between € 1000 en 2000
- Premium celloset between € 2000 en 3000

Termination of rental agreement
Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl does not work with a notice period and you do not have to cancel the rental if you want to terminate the rental. All you have to do is ensure that the instrument is returned in The Hague, Prins Mauritsplein 19 (drop-off possible on Tuesday to Saturday between 11 am and 4.30 pm, without appointment) or collected at your home (price = + € 14,95). As soon as the instrument has been received by us, the rental agreement will be terminated, including any automatic payment arrangements and you will be notified by e-mail, which also explains the refund of the deposit (only applicable for premium violins, cellos and double basses). Any invoices that were already sent for the next rental period of 3 months will then be cancelled if the instrument has been returned in time.
