Robertson's has developed a national reputation for supplying the highest quality rental outfits on the market. The "Johannes Kohr" is a fully carved instrument featuring a spruce top, maple back, sides, and scroll, ebony fittings, a Wittner tailpiece, a fiberglass bow with genuine horse hair, and a molded case (padded bag for cello). These instruments are available in all sizes for violins, violas, and cellos.

All instruments are adjusted in our own workshop to teacher specifications. Most of our staff have had experience playing professionally, teaching in the public schools as well as the collegiate level, or teaching privately and are well aware of the particulars in instrument set-up and adjustment.
