Instrument Bank (CLOSED)

The Instrument Bank owns violins, violas, cellos and a string bass. The violins and cellos range in size from  1/4 to full size, with most of the violins being Suzuki-made and the cellos German.


In the summer of 2010, SMA was able to upgrade some of the instruments with new strings, bows and cases.  SMA branding was added to the new instrument cases so that they can be easily identified. 


As of June 7, 2017, the Instrument Bank was CLOSED. While we will continue to rent a few “special” instruments, the main rental operation has come to an end.


The Instrument Bank was located in Halifax in the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts (MCPA) at 6199 Chebucto Road, Room 11, 2nd floor.
