BUY-BACK & RENTAL

Instrument Buy-Back Scheme

Every student instrument bought through our showroom whether new or used comes with a guaranteed buy-back price if you return it any time during the first year of ownership.

Regardless of how much you pay, if you return the instrument within six months we will refund the full purchase price less £50.00. Return it within one year and we will refund the full purchase price less £100.00.

This means during the crucial first year's lessons you are only committed to spending a maximum of £100.00 on your instrument, no matter what you choose or how much it costs. If things don't work out, we'll refund the difference.

We ask only that the instrument is returned in reasonable condition, and reserve the right to reduce our offer if it shows significantly more than normal wear and tear, though this is rarely if ever necessary.

If for any reason you wish to return an instrument after the first year, we will make an offer based on how long you have owned it and an assessment of its condition.

 

Instrument Rental Scheme

A number of our student instrument lines are available for rental on a termly basis (three payments per annum based on school terms) at a cost of £80.00 for the first term, then £60.00 at the start of each subsequent term.

Servicing and minor repairs are included in the hire charge which is payable by invoice at the start of each term (bank transfer or card).

If at any time you decide you'd like to buy the instrument outright, 50% of hire fees paid to date will be offset against the purchase price.

Please see individual product listings, and use the 'enquire' button to contact our showroom and let us know your requirements.
