Instrument Rental with Studio 19 – How does it work?

Renting an instrument through Studio 19 is an easy and cost-effective way to get your hands on a brand new instrument.

If you're a beginner:

It can be hard to know whether you will want to continue learning a new instrument, and this is why you should consider the option of renting through Studio 19. 

When you rent through Studio 19, you receive a brand new instrument from us that you can give back after 6 months - no questions asked. You can also buy out your rental instrument at any point. So, you might decide after 3 months that you absolutely love learning the flute and will continue playing for years to come. At this point, you may want to switch to purchasing the instrument that you have been renting. The amount you pay to purchase the instrument will depend on how long you have been renting (you will need to contact Studio 19 to find out how much). 

This gives you the freedom and peace of mind that you can hand the instrument back after six months.

If you're a more advanced player:

Perhaps you’re a trombone player interested in giving bass trombone a try. Why not rent for a few months and purchase when you are confident that this is the right instrument for you? Or maybe you only need the instrument for an album you're producing. When you rent with Studio 19, you get a high quality, new instrument that you can hand back after 6 months.
