Eastman’s VL405, one of our most popular intermediate violins for String Day.

The dates are set! TMS-Normal will have its annual String Day on April 23, 2016. TMS-Champaign will host String Week on May 3 through May 7, 2016. These events have Central IL’s best selection of hand-crafted, high quality orchestra instruments. Customers will be able to try a wide range of models from intermediate to advanced.

Every instrument will have passed inspection by our on-site string repair technicians. Additionally, a complete set-up will be provided with purchase.

Purchase your instrument, bow, and case as a package for the biggest savings. If you’d prefer to customize your selection, every item can be purchased individually.

Financing Options Available

The Music Shoppe offers 0% interest, three easy payment financing. Put one-third down on the instrument, and take it home with you. The remaining balance will be automatically billed the two following months.

We have also partnered with Personal Finance Company (PFC) in Bloomington to provide 12 months deferred interest financing. After credit approval, you take your instrument home with no down payment. Make payments up to three years, or pay in full within 12 months for no interest!

Apply your Rental Equity

Renting from The Music Shoppe? Apply up to three years of rental equity! The Music Shoppe will subtract your equity directly from the price of a full-size instrument. Rental equity can be applied to any intermediate or advanced models.
