Reasons to consider instrument rental this Christmas

We're really proud of our rental scheme.  For more than 25 years thousands of musicians of all ages across the UK have started with a JP rental. With many of us being more conscious of our purchasing choices, we thought we'd share some of the arguments to consider rental this Christmas.

  • Children often try one instrument and find some months later that they'd now like to try something different - even adults can sometimes feel this way! Without having spent a not insignificant amount of money on an instrument (not forgetting the accessories that accompany it), hiring an instrument means there's less pressure on all involved. 
  • Hiring is also really good option for adults who learned as a child and now want to get back into playing. Because our range is so affordable, you could hire an instrument as a stop-gap to get your technique back into shape before upgrading to a more advanced model.*
  • Less waste! We maintain rental instruments so that they are able to continue serving musicians if/when they are returned.

So we've established that hiring is great, but here's four reasons why the John Packer Rental Scheme really is the best:
  • The range: We hire Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones, Oboes, Cor Anglais, Bassoons, Trumpets, Cornets, Flugel Horns, Tenor Horns, Baritone Horns, Euphoniums, and French Horns! 
  • Price: Monthly charges start from only £15 a month. (A 3 month minimum term applies.)
  • Value: Customers can off-set a maximum of six months' rental payments off the price of the instrument they're hiring.
  • Save VAT: If you're in state education you can also purchase your instrument via the school to save paying the VAT. (Read details and T&C's)

* While you can't off-set hire fees off the price of a different instrument. If you do choose to buy a different model of instrument, as a previous hire we guarantee to give you a good deal on any upgrade.
