Bischofberger Violins is located in Capitol Hill on the corner of E John st and.
This store features new and used violins for purchase or rental (also does restoration and appraisals). I have played violin for over 10 years and when I moved to Seattle without mine I decided to look for a store where I could rent one. Bischofberger's rental violins are well maintained and rental bows are of reasonable quality.
They also sell violins, bows, strings, rosin, and other violin accessories.
Rentals start at $20 a month not including deposit.
