Rental Terms

Instruments are covered for normal wear & tear. Instruments will be replaced in case of theft or fire for a one time fee. The cost of this insurance is included in the monthly payment listed above.

All prices include a monthly service charge as follows:
Group A: $6.00; Group B: $8.00; Group C: $9.00

No refunds for early returns. After initial rental you have the following options:

  • 1) continue to re-rent the instrument on a continuous monthly basis accumulating money toward the rent-to-own price
  • 2) purchase the instrument in one payment at any time and receive a discount
  • 3) return the instrument at any time

Credit or Debit Card Required for Rental (even if paying by check).


Exchange instrument

You may exchange your rental instrument for a different type (ex. exchange trumpet for clarinet) at any time during the rental period for an exchange fee of $25. As your child grows, there is no exchange fee charged for Violin & Viola size upgrades.


Purchase instrument

A portion of each rental payment goes toward the purchase of the instrument. (Rental Fee minus Monthly Service Charge & taxes if applicable = Rental Equity toward instrument).

We also give a 50% discount off the remaining balance to purchase the instrument during the 1st year of rental. The second year will offer a 25% discount.

Please call the K&S Music billing office at 908-790-0400 ext. 10 to obtain a purchase price.
