Benefits of the Meridian Winds Rent-to-Own Plan
- Our rental program is rent-to-own: All rental payments apply towards the eventual purchase of the instrument. (For example, if the purchase price of a flute is $390 plus tax, it would require 13 payments of $30 per month to achieve ownership.)
- Your payment includes the Meridians Winds Service and Protection Agreement during the term of the rental at no additional cost
- All rental instruments are new or pre-owned. Pre-owned instruments have been completely reconditioned by our technicians and are in excellent playing condition.
- Loaner instruments are available if the the rental instrument must be left for repair during the rental period.
- We have a special offer for a free folding music stand with carrying case and music book when you pay 3 months rental in advance – a $35 value .
- All rental instruments are student models and are subject to availability.
- If your child starts out on one instrument and decides to switch to another, all rental payments made on the first instrument will be transferred to the new instrument.
- All schools that we offer rentals to are visited weekly for service and repairs.

- When you begin a rental contract with us, you will receive a rental period invoice. This invoice IS NOT A BILL. It reflects the total cost of the instrument. Your monthly payment of $30-$80 per month (depending on the type of instrument you are renting) will be applied to this invoice until there is a zero balance, at which point you will own the instrument, or until you return the instrument to us.
