Why use Rent to Buy?

A high-quality instrument is easier and more rewarding to play than a cheap model. Rent to Buy puts a good-quality instrument in financial reach, and takes away the risk if you or your child stop playing.

Buying a "cheap" instrument is often a false economy - a high-quality instrument is easier to play, more reliable, sounds better, and has a better resale value. A good instrument can encourage a beginner when they're starting out, while bad instruments are often harder to play and can be demoralising - and that's not what a new player needs.

The cost of buying a good-quality musical instrument can put parents off, because they are unsure whether they or their child will continue playing.

Our Rental scheme means you can try an instrument to see whether you will get along with it, without having to commit to a purchase. Decide it's not for you after all? No problem, just return it to us. Realise you love it? That's fine too, because after 18 payments, ownership it transfers to you. What's more, because all instruments on our rental scheme are made by well-known brands who are renowned for their excellent quality and design, you're getting a great instrument.

All instruments on the rental scheme are brand new and fully set up in our repair studio, to ensure that you get the best possible start.

This scheme is open to anyone aged 18 years or above, subject to status.
