Band Instrument Season - Your Help is Important

Just a reminder that band season is right around the corner, and we can use your help to spread the word about our used band instruments! Word of mouth is the best reference, and we appreciate all the help you can give us.

Many band directors like for their students to purchase or rent only brand new instruments. I am not sure why, as I used to be a band director and I was more interested in getting ANY working horn in the hands of an interested student.

There are a number of reasons why we don't rent, but the two foremost are: 1) it's not good for us (very large initial investment); and 2) it's not good for the person renting (you end up paying WAY more for a rental).

With the economy in such poor shape, it only makes sense to purchase good, used band instruments for students. We have brand name flutes, trumpets, clarinets, trombones, saxophones, and more in stock right now for great prices! We guarantee all we sell, and we repair what we sell. Many times you can purchase the instrument for the same price as one year (or less) of rental -- and the horn is yours to keep! Why pay for rental? If the student drops out of band, you are left with NOTHING. If you own the instrument, you can at least resell it for SOMETHING and recoup a little bit of the money you spent.

We hope that you'll remember us for band instruments this year!
