A good quality entry-level instrument can often seem expensive, particularly when there is uncertainty about the length of time it may be needed.
So, for your peace of mind, we supply all our standard range of student instruments, whether new or refurbished, with our buy-back guarantee. This means we offer a fixed price for the instrument should you need to return it at any time within the first twelve months of ownership. In effect, you are only committed to a modest hire fee for the instrument during the crucial early stages of learning.
Buy-back prices for all ranges of instruments available on this scheme can be viewed by following the link below. However, to give you an idea, here are a couple of examples:
- A new Catelinet CFL-10 student flute, bought for £255.00, at any time up to six months from the date of purchase we will buy back for £225.00, or between six and twelve months £175.00. (Cost to you: £30.00 for six months' use or £80.00 for twelve months' use)
- A new Catelinet CTR10 student trumpet in lacquered finish bought for £209.00, at any time up to six months from the date of purchase we will buy back for £179.00, or between six and twelve months £129.00. (Cost to you: £30.00 for six months' use or £80.00 for twelve months' use)
- The instrument should be returned to us in reasonable condition. If there is wear or damage to the instrument beyond that which would occur through normal use, we reserve the right to reduce our offer to take this into account, though this is rarely necessary.
- Ideally, you should retain your receipt or invoice as proof of purchase and to enable us to quickly identify the instrument. However, if you lose your receipt we should still be able to confirm your purchase from our records.
Please note that buy-back is not available on instruments supplied via our online shop, nor do we offer it on instruments purchased through the VAT-free AIPS (Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme).
