Finlay + Gage rents high quality instruments set-up by our expert luthiers and offer excellent service including unlimited string replacement. If you or your teacher find anything wrong with the instrument at any time, or if you need to change sizes, simply exchange it for another of equal value at the shop or at your school.
 
Renters can apply rental payments toward the purchase of the rental instrument they are renting or towards the purchase of anything from our diverse collection of retail instruments.

Rental credit remains valid for one year after the rental instrument is returned. Credit applied towards the purchase of an instrument is exclusive of any tax paid while renting.

Rentals must be returned to Finlay + Gage Musical Instruments (F+G), to a staff member of the store or to your local school. Renters should collect a return receipt after returning the rented instrument.

South Orange - Maplewood and the school districts of the surrounding area recommend accessories and method books for school-year rentals. We stock all of what our renters will need for a successful year of learning. Come on in and see for yourself.

SIZING
The best way to size is to talk to the student's teacher. If there's no teacher involved yet, come and visit us at the shop and we will measure the student and give you some teacher info. If that’s not possible, then use the following as a guide.

If you’re not sure which size to use after following our directions, go with the smaller size—we can always get you a bigger one, if you need it.
