Rental Instrument Options

We carry a full selection of top-quality NEW and USED BAND and ORCHESTRA INSTRUMENTS by the manufacturers that your director recommends.  For band students we stock new Yamaha, Selmer, Bach, King, Holton, Gemeinhardt, Armstrong, Eastman and Ludwig woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. For orchestra students we stock new Scherl & Roth, Glaesel, William F. Lewis, Eastman and Amati brand instruments.

In addition to new instruments, we also have a good selection of USED INSTRUMENTS that can be rented just like the new instruments but at lower monthly rental rates.  Most of our used instruments are Rental Returns--instruments that were turned back in to us because the student either switched to another instrument or opted not to continue in the program.

We also acquire some used instruments through trade-ins or purchases.  Every used instrument in our inventory is thoroughly checked, cleaned, sanitized,  regulated and adjusted in our in-house band or orchestra repair shop and then outfitted with new accessories required for that instrument.  We stand 100% behind our used instruments just like we do our new ones.

USED INSTRUMENTS are categorized as follows:

USED A -- These instruments are "like new" and have minimal use--usually less than a school year.  These instruments show very little wear & tear and are in great shape mechanically and cosmetically.

USED B -- These instruments have been used a little longer than the "A's" --maybe up to 2 years of use--but are still in excellent condition cosmetically.  They may show some minor wear & tear, but are still in sound mechanical and cosmetic condition.

 

Used instruments are great for families on a budget--their retail prices and their corresponding monthly rental rates are lower than new instruments.  Also, the term (number of rental payments necessary to acquire ownership) for used instruments is shorter than it is for new ones.  Although we normally will have some used inventory available, we cannot always guarantee that will be the case as it is first-come, first-serve with used product.  You are welcome to call us to check on availability.  If you request a used instrument on-line that we cannot supply, we will contact you with what other options we might have.
