Flute Rental Guide
Updated: Nov 19
If your child chooses to be in the band, renting an instrument is the most economical option for parents. Our excellent rental program comes with a host of benefits and perks, but it also takes away the financial barrier of a significant up-front payment.
The flute is a popular, fun instrument for beginning band students, and we are here to help you with everything needed to rent a clarinet online. Our website makes it super quick and easy, and gives you the choice of picking it up in-store, or having us deliver to your child's school or your home! All of the most frequently requested accessories are available for purchase on our website and can also be delivered or picked up with your instrument.
Why should you rent vs. buy a low-cost flute online?
There is no guarantee the flute will be right for your child. Renting allows you to play at a minimum of expense. Maybe the best part is that it enables your child to change instruments if something else seems like a better fit. Need another good reason to rent? The rented flute will bear the wear-and-tear that goes hand-in-hand with learning how to maintain and handle an instrument. Our rental program will help keep your child's instrument in top playing condition. Should anything go wrong while renting, our program covers all essential maintenance and repair!
A cheap, no-name flute purchase is a huge mistake for many reasons. But, if you don't want to take our word for it, simply as your child's music teacher! When a bargain-basement flute comes into our shop for repair, in many cases, we are unable to furnish it with pads or replacement parts as these manufacturers don't use standard replacement parts! So the chances are that you'll not be able to get this instrument repaired and thus playing correctly! We rent quality student-level instruments made by the most respected names in the music products industry. Yamaha and Jupiter flutes make up a large portion, however, we also carry Gemeinhardt, Armstrong, Selmer, and Eastman. With these well-respected brands, and our 1st class, on-site repair facility, you can rest assured that your child will not be fighting a poor playing instrument as they are just beginning their musical journey!
"Rental Assurance Plan"
Our optional Assurance Plan provides you with the resources to keep the clarinet playing its best, as well as assisting with a replacement if it's destroyed or stolen.
Many of our competitor's rental plans offer a "Rent-to-Own option". We have opted to run our company a bit differently and we think once you understand why you will agree that it's a much better plan.
Every company's rent-to-own is based on a percentage of your rental money going to toward the eventual purchase of the instrument you've been renting. However, the purchase price is calculated at full manufacturer's suggested Retail Price! With our plan, you can rent for as long as you like. When you're ready to buy, our pricing on new and used instruments is among the most competitive in the country. We believe this is a more fair and transparent way to run our business and benefit our customers in almost every circumstance!
Exchange or Return Options
Children have known to change their minds, so our rental program lets you return or exchange your rental anytime.
Repair and Adjustments
The last thing your child's teacher wants is to have a student sitting in a band or orchestra class without an instrument. So, unlike most of our competitors, we offer a loaner instrument in case yours needs repair.
