Rental Program


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.
  • Accessories included with the initial rental:
    • Brass instruments – oil & slide grease
    • Flute – cleaning rod & polishing cloth
    • Clarinet – 3 reeds, cork grease, swab
    • Oboe – 1 reed, swab, cork grease
