Need A Percussion Instrument For A Few Months?

Rent One!

Will you really use it as much as you think you will? Do you need it as often as you think you do?

Will your child play marimba in marching band again next year, or will they move her to vibraphone?

Do you wish you could practice in the privacy of your own home whenever the mood strikes you?

Will you have this many percussionists in your band program again next year?

Before you shell out thousands of dollars on a new percussion instrument, it's often a good idea to test the waters to make sure you're truly ready.

As the U.S.'s largest by-the-month mallet rental service, we'll deliver the best instrument to you for the best price. Our inventory is constantly changing, so please see above for a list of instruments we carry, and contact us with your needs. If you need something that's NOT listed, tell us. We may be able to help you find it from another source.

Don't Fall For Rent-To-Own Scams!

Some stores offer "Rent-To-Own" programs with insanely-inflated purchase prices. We've seen Rent-To-Own prices that are triple the actual "street price" of the instrument. We don't offer "Rent-To-Own." We encourage you to read any "Rent-To-Own" contract carefully before you sign it, and ask the seller exactly how much will you have paid out-of-pocket by the time you actually own the instrument!
