Rental Agreement

Rental Agreement

Here is the rental contract you will have to sign to rent an instrument from us

Please note that only customers who intend to rent monthly are required to undergo a credit report. If you pre-pay for a full year you can receive a 25% discount and bypass the credit report.

We believe in being open in our policies and we try to make everything really clear, but we know that contracts can be scary and confusing sometimes so please contact us or see our rental FAQ page if you have questions about something. We’re very happy to help.
