Q. What does it cost to rent an instrument?
A. For a rental fee FROM $20.00 to $99.00 per month (depending on the instrument you select), you can start your child in the school band or orchestra. All instruments come with accessories and case. Fees vary on smaller violin outfits, double French horns and other background instruments.
Q. Does the rent apply toward the purchase?
A. Yes! As you rent, payments apply toward the purchase should you decide to buy the instrument you are renting from us.
Q. Is there a service agreement; what is the cost; and who repairs the instruments?
A. In addition to the manufacturer’s 1 year warranty, ART’S offers service on all the instruments we sell or rent. We have an up-to-date repair shop with full-time, full service factory trained technicians. Adjustments can be made in-the-band room by an ART’S School Service Representative that calls on the school, or you may bring it by one of our fine in-store repair shops.
Q. Do I have to rent the cheapest student instrument?
A. No! Many parents and directors prefer to rent something a little better, such as open hole French model flutes, wood clarinets, and intermediate model brass instruments. It’s your choice.
Q. Are the rental instruments new or used?
A. We have both available, in addition to rebuilt and short-term rental return instruments. Again, it’s your choice. New instrument rental rates are slightly higher. Used and rental return instruments are subject to availability.

Q. Where do we make our rental payments?
A. Most of our customers use our stress-free auto draft to make their monthly rental payments. No more late fees, postage, or envelopes necessary — it’s the most convenient way to make your payment.
