Fegley’s has a wide variety of instruments for sale starting around $400 extending up into the $10-$15,000 range, offering instruments that fit all needs. Occasionally we will have a very valuable old instrument passed through our shop on consignment. Joe doesn’t believe in buying instruments from dealers and getting 10 of the same violin in a crate.
We buy private as much as possible to add to our collection of over a few hundred instruments. It allows us to provide our customers with a unique variety of instruments to allow the customer to try rather than going the cookie cutter route where every instrument looks and sounds the same!
We understand the importance of finding the right instrument or bow that it’s right for the customer and meets their every need. Therefore, we strive to work with the customer to find a payment plan that meets every budget. We focus on quality over quantity here at Fegleys and will be there side by side with you as you grow as a musician.
We offer 100% trade-in value on our instruments sold as long as the instrument or bow has had the proper maintenance preformed at Fegleys. We also offer fair trade values on instruments that were not purchased at Fegleys. We would love the opportunity to meet with you and appraise your instrument to see what you would get towards a Fegley instrument, stop in today!
Violin Rental Program
Our instruments are made of slightly higher quality, avoiding the typical “ebay” type instruments that are often not beneficial for young players to learn with. We offer a simple month-to-month rental system that doesn’t lock you into a 6-month contract, which allows our clients to borrow a fine instrument when they may need solo quality for performances or short term leases. The player can rent an instrument or bow for a month to practice and get use to the instrument before their big performance. Fegley’s will help you perform at your best!
We offer a superior quality of rental instruments with proper setup. Whether you are new to stringed instruments and are just starting out or are looking for an upgrade rental for orchestra, we provide the following two levels of rental programs: Standard or Elite.
Our violin, viola, cello and bow rentals and leases are available in all sizes and come equipped with a bow, case and cleaning cloth. We offer an option to trade up to a larger instrument at any time, with no added fees and without losing your rental credit.
We offer maintenance and insurance programs that allow standard service to be performed in order to keep your rental instrument in the best playing condition with no added cost at the time of the repair or adjustment. Our basic maintenance and insurance programs start at $5 per month and will be added to the monthly rental fee.
Our rental program also allows 100% of your first years rent to be credited towards a purchase of a higher quality instrument if you choose to do so.
