If you need to get an instrument, I would strongly suggest renting one from Zeswitz (or a music store of your choosing). You will receive a better instrument and repairs are covered while renting. Use this link to go to the Zeswitz rental page :

The availability of school instruments is very limited. Please contact me if acquiring an instrument is extraordinarily difficult. I will do what I can to get you an instrument.
