Meridian Winds

Meridian Winds Rent-to-Own Plan

  • RENTAL PAYMENTS: All rental payments apply towards the purchase of the instrument. [For example, if the purchase price of a flute is $330 plus tax, it would require 12 payments of $30 per month to achieve ownership. Payments will be automatically deducted from your credit card each month.] You must have a credit card on file to keep your rental contract current. Any late payments that are taken after our 10-day grace period will incur a $5 late fee.
***Please note that if you return your instrument to us over the summer, your rental agreement will be terminated and you will need to start a new agreement if you want the instrument back in the fall. This will result in the loss of credit towards eventual ownership.***

  • SERVICE WARRANTY: All of our rentals include the Meridian Winds Service and Protection Agreement during the term of the rental at no additional cost. Any repairs needed during the rental period will be covered unless there is evidence of malicious damage. Loaner instruments are available if the rental instrument must be left with us for repair during the rental period. Most schools that we service are visited weekly for pick-ups, deliveries, and repairs.

  • INSTRUMENT CONDITION: All of our rental instruments are either new or pre-owned. Pre-owned instruments have been completely reconditioned by our technicians and are in excellent playing condition. They may have some slight cosmetic wear that does not affect the playing condition of the instrument. All rental instruments are student models and are subject to availability.

  • SPECIAL OFFER FOR NEW RENTALS: If you pay your first 4 rental payments when you start your rental agreement, you will receive a folding music stand with a carrying case and the music book required by your child's school at no additional charge (a $30 value).

  • SWITCHING INSTRUMENTS: If your child decides to switch instruments, 100% of the credit applied in the first year can be transferred and 50% of credit paid past the first year. Please contact us if your child wishes to switch instruments.

  • WHAT'S INCLUDED? All instrument comes with a case, mouthpiece, and the following accessories so your student will be ready to play! 
    • Brass instruments: oil & slide grease
    • Flute: cleaning rod & polishing cloth
    • Clarinet: 3 reeds, cork grease, swab

    • ADDITIONAL ACCESSORIES: You can purchase any additional accessories your student needs when you make your initial rental agreement payment.

  • GETTING YOUR INSTRUMENT: We offer delivery to any school we normally service during the school year. We make deliveries once per week. To see our delivery schedule, please click here. If you need your instrument sooner than our next scheduled delivery, we can ship it to you for an additional charge. You can also come pick it up from the store.

  • TERMINATING YOUR RENTAL AGREEMENT: If, at any time during your rental period, your child decides to quit band, you can return your rental instrument (including the mouthpiece) to us and your rental agreement will be complete. Your payments will stop and you will not own the instrument. Please note that if you return your instrument to us over the summer, your rental agreement will be terminated and you will need to start a new contract if you want the instrument back in the fall. This will result in the loss of any rental payment credit you previously accrued.
