Oboe Rental Guide
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 Oboe is can be tricky for beginning band students, but we are here to help you with everything needed to rent an Oboe online. The oboe is a Double Reed Instrument. In contrast with a single-reed instrument, where the instrument is played by channeling air against one piece of cane which vibrates against the mouthpiece and creates a sound, a double reed features two pieces of cane vibrating against each other. 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 (like reeds, cork grease, and swabs) 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 Oboe online?
There is no guarantee the Oboe 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 Oboe with 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 basic maintenance and repair!
"Rental Assurance Plan"
Our optional Assurance Plan provides you with the resources to keep the Oboe playing its best, as well as assisting with a replacement if it’s destroyed or stolen. With the many complexities of an oboe, this is a highly recommended option!
Many of our competitor's rental plans offer a "Rent-to-Own option". We have opted to run our program 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 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 benefits our customers in almost every single circumstance!
Exchange or Return Options
Children have been knowing 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. The turnaround on repairs is typically just a few days!
