Start playing viola this week!
Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl specializes in the rental of hand-built violas. In our workshop there is mostly a suitable viola in the right size available for you. You can choose to pick up the viola in The Hague, but it is also possible to have the viola shipped via our partners PostNL, DHL or DPD. The viola is well packaged, so that you get it delivered to your home in perfect condition. You always rent a complete set from us, consisting of: a viola, bow, shoulder rest, resin and a sturdy viola case. We have chosen to work with European violas, because Dutch viola teachers have a preference for European instruments. All violas are equipped with quality strings (D'Addario, Pirastro or Thomastik) and a Wittner (D) tailpiece with integrated fine tuners.
Information viola rental
Determine size whether you are looking for an instrument for yourself, or for your son or daughter. We have the right size in stock. The following sizes are available: 11", 12", 13", 14", 15" ad 16". 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 want to receive the viola sent by post, the payment of the first rental period must be received by Strijkinstrumentenshop.nl. And furthermore, a copy of your ID need to be send by mail in order to assess your iedentity (photo may be covered).

We are convinced that no matter how small the viola is and whatever the level of the player, everyone should have a good instrument at their disposal. 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 shoulder rest, chest and bow you have everything you need to start playing the violin! For violas we work with two (2) quality classes, namely advanced and premium., whereby the following values (ca) of the instruments apply:
- Advanced violaset tussen € 500 en 1000
- Premium violaset tussen € 1000 en 2500
If you choose "send" in the rental applicatio, the viola will be sent in a box via the regular shipping companies (post-NL, DHL or DPD). Shipping costs are € 9.95. It is advisable to keep the box before returning the instrument.
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 send it by post-NL / DHL in a suitable box to the Van Weede van Dijkveldstraat 93, 2582KT The Hague. 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.
