Instrument Rental Options

Here are examples of condition types. All instrument condition types are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and checked over carefully by our in-house repair staff. The difference is purely cosmetic and classified based on the wear and tear of the finish and case. All instruments will work and play as they should and have an initial guarantee of quality playing condition at the time of sale/rental. We offer a 48 hour guarantee on the playing condition of all instruments.
