Instrument garunteed to be in good playing condition - insuring your student has the best chance at success.
More students stick with band when the instrument is purchased outright. The monetary investment creates more ownership in the process.
Shiney new instruments are exciting to students and builds excitement and momentum. PRIDE!
Often cheaper overall than an instrument rental program.
Used Instrument Purchase
Instrument may need repairs to be placed into good playing condition.
Overall lower cost. But, families
purchase insurance and repairs.
Great when a monthly payment is not an option.
A quality used instrument is a much better option than a new "lower quality" instrument.
No Vendors Locally. Harder to find a good quality instrument "ready to play"
