Seattle Area Cello Rentals/Purchases:

Bischofberger Violins (Capitol Hill and Kirkland) : they have a rental credit program where they will apply the first nine months’ rent to the purchase of any cello in their shop. They carry a variety of sizes.

David Stone (University District) : I haven’t found anyone as open and willing to educate as David Stone. If you’re looking to buy, rehair, or repair a bow, I can’t recommend a better shop or mentor. He also carries some hard to find rosin.

Kennelly Keys (Lynnwood, Tukwila, Bellevue, Everett, Northgate) : great source for rentals. They have a variety of cello sizes.

Lasley Violins (Ballard) : buy or rent a cello, usually full size.

Olsen Violins (Ballard) : apply a year’s worth of cello rent toward the purchase of any cello. Mainly full sizes available.

Rafael Carrabba Violins (W. Queen Anne) : a good resource for cello purchases and repairs. Mainly services higher end instruments.

Hammond Ashley Violins (Issaquah): 9 months of cello rental goes toward the purchase of any cello. They offer cellos of all sizes here.
