We've designed what we think is the easiest, most flexible instrument rental program available anywhere.
Rent to Own your instrument
We furnish new, rental return, and used instruments. A rental return is simply a new instrument that was rented for a few months, but is in like new condition with a full warranty and offered at a discount. Instruments available for rent include Flutes, Clarinets, Alto Saxophones, Trumpets, Trombones, Percussion Kits, Violins, Violas, & Cellos. New band instruments with the exception on saxophones rent for $29.50 per month plus tax, saxophones are $39.50. New violins, violas, & cellos rent for $22.50, $26.50, & $36.50 respectively. Rental Return instruments rent for $26.50 per month and $36.50 (saxes). Used instruments start at $18.50 per month and vary depending on age and condition
If you choose the Auto Pay option, all you pay to get started is the first month's rent. If you're using cash or check, we require a $35 deposit in addition to the first month's rent. The deposit will be refunded to you if the instrument is returned at any point and there is no damage to the instrument or delinquent payments. You may also choose to apply the deposit toward purchasing the instrument.
Purchase with Return Option
This is the best option for you in the long run. You may purchase a new or rental return instrument at a 30% discount! The best part is that we allow you to return the instrument after 6 months should your child decide that the band is not for him/her. We will refund what you paid for the instrument less the applicable rental fees for the length of time you owned the instrument. You must play the instrument for at least 6 months before returning. This way you get the best discount and the security of knowing you're not stuck with an instrument should your child not stay with it.
Band Director approved instruments
Not all band instruments are created equal. Some of the low priced instruments you might see on the internet today are made with cheaper metals and are not built to even play in tune as they should. Key's get bent from time to time on every instrument and need to be adjusted to play properly. The problem with most of these low priced instruments is that when they are adjusted, the keys break rather than bending back to their proper position. At Metronome Music, all of our rental instruments are approved by your band director and are serviceable. We carry new instruments by Yamaha and Howard Core and we only take in used instruments that meet those qualifications as well.
On location service for you're instrument
Metronome Music offers service for your instrument right here at our store. No more waiting for your instrument to be shipped off and returned to get fixed. Most instruments can be repaired within a week by our highly qualified technicians. If you're renting your instrument from us, we offer a $35 deductible on service for the instrument per visit. Loss from theft, fire, or malicious damage is not included, but may be covered through your personal homeowner's or renter's insurance.
