Rental agreements are month-to-month so you can return your instrument and stop payments at anytime. The instrument you rent will be for rental only. Rental payments will be put into an escrow account that can be used towards the retail price of an instrument of comparable quality or better. For example, if you rent a new instrument, your accumulated rental payments may only be applied to a new, student model or step-up instrument. If you rent a rental-return instrument, your accumulated rental payments may only be applied to a new or rental-return instrument. If you rent a used instrument, your accumulated rental payments may only be applied to a new, rental-return or like condition used instrument.

Your monthly rent will be billed automatically every month and all rent payments will be put in escrow and can be used toward the full retail cost of a like condition or step-up instrument at anytime.
Brand New: All brand new band instruments in Metronome Music’s Student Rental Program will be Yamaha Advantage Series Instruments. Yamaha Advantage Series instruments are designed with new musicians in mind and include a premium hard shell case.
Rental Return: Rental Return instruments are new Yamaha Advantage Series Instruments that were rented for a short time and then returned to us in like new condition, usually because a student quit or changed instruments. Rental Return Instruments have a new factory warranty but are rented at a discounted rate.
Used: Every year we look for the best used band instruments we can find and after being professionally serviced and sanitized they are made available for rent. We ensure that all used instruments are of the highest quality and will meet your director’s standards.
1.) Method Books: No matter which method book you school’s band director requires, we have you covered.
2.) Music Stand: Band Directors recommend that you have a music stand at home. We feel it is so important that if you purchase a music stand with your rental and the students quits, we will refund the total price of the stand.
3.) Care Accessories: Valve oil, reeds, sticks or mallets? Each instrument has it’s own necessary accessories and unique care needs to keep it playing great.
