Brass & Woodwind Rental Scheme
- Try Before You Buy from as little as £1.61 per day -
For 25 years we have run a highly successful ‘Try Before You Buy’ brass and woodwind rental scheme for primary and high school students.
The aim of the scheme is to give school students the opportunity to try their hand at brass and woodwind, on reliable good quality instruments, for a low cost rental fee – which is deducible from the purchase price if the instrument is bought at the end of the hire period.
We stock a wide range of brand new, serviced ex-rental, and serviced second hand instruments, made by some the leading names in the Brass & Woodwind world.
Our hire period is based on a minimum 4 months, but can be extended as many times as required.
Want to buy the instrument you rented – or even a different model? At the end of the 4 month rental you can buy your preferred make/ model of instrument – even if it’s different from the instrument you’ve rented - and we will still deduct your original rental fee from the purchase price. That means your 4 month ‘try before you buy’ rental doesn’t cost you a penny extra.
To hire an instrument just pop into the shop with some ID – driving licence or passport – and the aspiring musician, so we can offer some essential advice on setting up, care, and basic maintenance of the instrument. It
