Manselle’s Music understands what it is like to be a parent, a student, a music teacher, or just someone who isn’t ready to purchase an instrument but wants to have a positive musical experience and not worry about a low quality instrument that is faulty. That is why we offer a RENT-TO-OWN policy which is INTEREST FREE! That means you can rent-to-own an instrument and have EVERY SINGLE PENNY of your rent payment applied towards purchasing the instrument! In addition to interest free payments we offer a 100% TRADE IN with NO TIME LIMIT which INCLUDES NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR!!! A few stores that do have a trade-in policy often charge a reconditioning fee or a depreciation fee for basic wear and tear. MANSELLE’S MUSIC DOES NOT CHARGE THESE FEES!!! We also provide many services for FREE or we discount them for our customers! Below is specific information regarding our policy and rates. For more information, please contact us at 503-659-9817 or email us: sales at

***DISCOUNT PRICING! Manselle’s will MEET or BEAT the prices of our competitors! Simply present an ad or quotation from another store, and we will meet it or beat it! We also will usually price match with internet and mail order authorized dealer outlets. Simply present the website info. or mail order brochure, and we will match their price (including applicable shipping and handling). Now you can save money and get your item right away instead of worrying about an internet order getting mixed up or having a damaged instrument arriving weeks after you order it! It’s always best to purchase an instrument you can see, feel, and hear - rather than buying sight unseen! By choosing Manselle’s Music you not only support the local economy and keep tax dollars local, but you also benefit from our knowledgeable staff and the services we provide.

 We offer TOTAL EASE OF MIND! Simply return your instrument in similar condition (normal wear and tear is acceptable) and we will FULLY REFUND the purchase price minus the fee of a rental contract on the instrument outfit you purchased! We pro-rate according to our standard rental contract fees, from the day you purchased until the day you returned the instrument outfit, and REFUND the UNUSED rental money back to you!  Dollar for dollar, it’s the same as a rental!

We offer free tuning, cleaning and polishing, bridge adjustments and many other FREE services on the instrument you purchased or are renting from Manselle’s Music!

***LIFETIME WARRANTY! Manselle’s Music backs every violin, viola, cello, and upright bass with a lifetime warranty regardless if the manufacturer offers a warranty or not! Manselle’s Music is also the authorized service center for many different brands of instruments.  If you incur any problems with the materials or the craftsmanship of your instrument you purchased from us, Manselle’s Music will fix or replace your instrument! Sorry, but if you abuse, mis-treat, damage, or alter your instrument, or have anyone other than Manselle’s Music Shop, Inc. adjust or repair the instrument, the warranty is void.
