Some questions answered:-
How much does it cost?
15% of the final price of the instrument is paid upfront.
How long can I rent it for?
Three months at a time. The maximum time scale is normally six months but if a student is renting the instrument through the school it can be extended to nine months.
Can I buy the instrument at anytime?
Yes, all you need to do is pay the outstanding balance.
What happens if there is a problem with the instruments and it needs repairing?
Whilst the instrument is on hire it is covered for any normal problems like leaks etc.
Is the money paid taken into account should I choose to buy it?
By the end of the hiring period any money you have paid is deducted. So if you have an instrument that cost £200 for example and you have rented it for six months and paid 30%, which means there is 70% left to pay which equates to an outstanding balance of £140.
Can I upgrade?
Yes, simply pay the difference.
What kind of instruments can I hire?
Flutes, Saxes, Clarinets oboes etc, most brass instruments and members of the violin family. These can be either new or second hand but have all been checked over.
