Rent and hire purchase, the most beautiful double basses within reach

A nice Strunal? An exclusive Bucur Double Bass? The best basses are within your reach through rental and leasing at Rikkers. You can rent a bass for just one performance, including delivery and pick-up if desired.

Are you looking for an excellent double bass for a longer period? Then we offer you an attractive construction through hire purchase. You then rent a new double bass for six months. If you subsequently decide to purchase the instrument, the rent and deposit paid will be fully deducted from the sales price. An interest-free payment in installments; talk about beneficial. You can of course also extend the contract after the first six months. Do you still decide to buy the bass after a year of renting it? In that case, six months’ rent and of course the deposit will also be deducted from the sales price. The affordable rental purchase construction applies to all our new double basses. At the bottom of this page you will find the rental purchase conditions.

Here is an example of this possibility with a Strunal double bass:



Strunal 3/4 Double bass with solid top, ebony fingerboard, spirit lacquer finish and Rikkers pickup.

New price: € 2,300

Rent price 3% per month: € 70 per month,
or: € 420 per six months

Deposit: 25% of the sales price: € 575

So you pay €995 when you pick up the bass.

Additional payment for purchase after six months of renting will then be: € 1,305

If you decide to rent for another six months, you will again pay €420 in rent.
The additional payment upon purchase will then remain: €1,305.
