Beginning Band Rent-To-Own Program
BandSource offers a true Rent-To-Own Program, to get your young student musician
started on a high quality band instrument. It's an affordable, simple way to ensure that
your beginning band student has the best experience possible, while offering both
peace of mind and financial flexibility to you as a parent.
The rental agreement begins with a three month trial period that allows the student to try
their new band instrument at a fraction of the cost of the regular monthly payments. This
is followed by affordable monthly rental payments that are debited from any major credit
or debit card. BandSource's true Rent-to-Own program is completely free of finance
charges and interest. The majority amount of your payments goes toward reducing the
beginning balance of the instrument until ownership is achieved, or the commitment
from the student prompts the parent to exercise an early ownership option that offers a
25% discount off the remaining available balance at any point during the rental.
If your student decides to discontinue study on their band instrument for any reason,
you may return the instrument to BandSource or have our school music representative
pick it up from school through your student's band director, without any further
Maintenance and replacement is also included in your monthly rental payments, which
offers peace of mind to parents by covering regular maintenance, major or minor repair,
and even replacement in the case of loss, theft or damage beyond repair. Extended
maintenance services, which covers maintenance, major or minor repair, are available
through BandSource once your complete ownership of your student's instrument.
In addition to the available early payoff option of your student level instrument,
BandSource also offers a very progressive upgrade or exchange program as part of our
true Rent-to-Own program. These options allow you to upgrade to an intermediate or
professional level instrument for your student musician, while utilizing the full amount
that you've invested towards ownership in the student rental program. If you explore this
option, you'll find up to the entire first year of your rental credit may be applied to the
competitive purchase price of any intermediate or professional level instrument
available from BandSource's comprehensive selection. Offering full rental credit off the
competitive purchase price is a very unique benefit that is not offered through most of
BandSource's ultimate goal in offering such a flexible and true Rent-to-Own program is
quite simple; We wish for every student musician to have the opportunity to experience
playing a high quality band instrument, and as a result of succeeding in their musical
studies, they will own their own instrument as quickly and fairly as possible.
