We offer an extremely flexible Rent-To-Own instrument rental program, with low monthly prices (that include insurance) and plenty of options for discounts, upgrades, or changes to fit your budget and your goals!


Our rental program in a nutshell:

  • Rent To Own (RTO) - continue renting at your low monthly payment and you will eventually own the instrument!
    • Terms typically range from 28-48 months, depending on the type of instrument.
  • No minimum time commitment – rent for as short as 1 month, or until you own it!
    • You can return at any time with no further commitment.
    • You can exchange instruments and have your equity* transfer to the new instrument
    • If you want to purchase early, you can earn a 25% discount on your remaining balance at any time if purchase before the RTO term ends
    • If your student outgrows the beginning instrument before the end of the Rent To Own period, you can also use your built-up equity* to purchase a NEW Step-Up instrument in the same instrument family!
  • We rent only high-quality, name-brand instruments endorsed by local band directors to give your student the best start possible with a well-functioning instrument that will stand up to regular use and last for decades.
    • All instruments are prepped, adjusted, cleaned, lubricated, oiled, play-tested, and disinfected by our in-house staff of professional repair technicians
    • We offer New, Like-New (A), Gently Used (B), and Used (C) Instrument outfits, which include important accessories such as a durable hard-shell case, mouthpiece, reeds, swabs, brushes, etc.
  • Low monthly rental payments
    • include Damage & Theft Coverage Insurance (DTC, or just 'Insurance').
      • Depending on the instrument, this Insurance is either $5 or $8 per month, and does not count towards the purchase price.
      • All Illinois Sales Taxes are also included in your monthly rental prices
    • Are automatic - no hassles of having to remember to pay or reminder emails flooding your inbox!

* Sales tax and Insurance payments do not count towards built-up equity.
