Rental FAQ's

"What is an Introductory Rental Period?"
The introductory rental period is a period of time (typically 4 months) in which students are allowed to "try out" their instrument, before monthly rent-to-own payments begin. If the student decides that the instrument is not for her/him, the instrument can be returned at any time. If the instrument is not returned by the end of the introductory rental period, monthly rent-to-own payments will automatically begin.

"My introductory period is over. How long will I have to continue making monthly payments?"
After the introductory rental period is over, you will have 20 months (24 months for instruments $1000 or more) remaining on your contract. At the end of your contract term (assuming all payments have been made) you will own the instrument, and monthly billing will stop.

"My child has decided to quit band. Can I return my instrument?"
Yes! All instruments are returnable at any point during the rental contract. Sorry, no refunds will be given on payments received.

"My child has decided to play a different instrument. May I switch instruments, and will I lose the payments I have already made?"
Our rentals allow for one "change of instrument" during the rental contract. If you decide to change your instrument, the payments you have already made will transfer over to the cost of your new instrument. You will be required to fill out a new rental contract at that time.

"My child has decided to stick with their instrument. May I pay the remaining balance to stop the monthly payments?"
Yes! At any point during the rental contract you may "buy out" the contract at a discount price of 10% lower than the remaining balance. A great way to save money and time!

"What is the total amount my rental will cost?"
Every instrument (new and used) has a "retail" price located on the tag. This price will also be printed on your receipt. Each payment made (including your introductory rental period payment) is subtracted from the total amount due. Finance charges are calculated at 1.5% per month, plus tax, to give you the total amount your instrument will cost.
