About the Program

The Best In Name Brands

All of our brass, woodwind, string and percussion instruments are quality name brands you can trust and meet tough quality guidelines set forth by manufacturers, our quality control & repair technicians and many music educators.

About Our Instruments

The instruments offered at this site are rental-return (not brand new) instruments that have met our rigorous quality control standards & exclusive 3-Point Inspection. Expendable items such as reeds, sticks, oils and/or rosin have been replaced. Mouthpieces have also been either sterilized or replaced. New instruments are available for exchange at any time (when available).

Instrument Exchange and Upgrade Options

Your instrument may be exchanged at any time for an intermediate model or different instrument. In some cases, up to 24 months of credit may be applied toward the balance.

Instrument Purchase Option

With our rent-to-own program, you may continue making monthly payments and apply the Base Rent paid towards the purchase of an instrument at any time. We also offer an early-payoff discount on the remaining balance (after rent credit has been applied!).

Cancel at Any time

Because this is a month-to-month rental program, there is no minimum term and you may return the instrument at any time without further obligation.

Big Cash Purchase Discounts

We offer cash discounts to our customers interested in purchasing any of our new or like-new instruments (even if renting). We will match or beat any competitor's advertised price.

Loss/Damage Coverage

For a small monthly fee, your instrument can be covered against loss, theft or damage beyond repair through our LDW, or Loss Damage Waiver Plus Maintenance Program. Loaner instruments are provided to students (when available) while our certified service professionals tend to the instrument in need of service. It's peace of mind you can count on.
