Stringed Instrument Rentals

Want to try something new but you're not quite ready to buy another instrument? Gryphon has rentals and we would be happy to set you up with something to get you moving down that musical road. We also have guitars in kids sizes. Sorry, no kid sized fiddles.

We require some information about you, a deposit and the first month's rent. We take your credit card number and charge you the monthly rent, each month, until you bring it back.

Here is the best part. When you bring the instrument back you can apply up to three months rent towards the purchase of a similar instrument. You also get your deposit back. For example, if you rent a guitar for three months that's $75 in rent credit and $75 in returned deposit. That's $150 that you kind of forgot you saved!

The rates are as follows...

Guitars
  (steel & nylon)
Mandolins
Violins
  (Full size only)
Ukuleles

$25/month, $75 deposit
Banjos
Electric Guitars w/amp
$35/month, $100 deposit

Call ahead and make sure that we have what you are looking for - 888 493 2131

Lock-It Straps Make it Easier to Relax

posted Sep 24, 2013

Using a patented design, these Lock-It straps eliminate the hassle of using metal strap locks to keep your instrument securely connected to your strap, and to you. You don't have to put special strap buttons on your instruments, and you can switch to a conventional strap whenever you want. Lock-It straps are made in the USA, and are currently available from the Gryphon Mercantile.
