Instrument Rentals

Guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, harps, hammered dulcimers, and mountain dulcimers are all available to rent at Dusty Strings! Renting is an easy, affordable way to get started before investing in your own instrument. We also have instructional materials for sale, and a Music School where you can sign up for private lessons, group classes, and workshops.
