Hiring a musical instrument is a perfect solution to the common problem of not knowing if the potential musician will 'stick at it' long enough to warrant buying an instrument. By hiring an instrument you can assess over the first few months whether the pupil will continue to play on a long term basis without taking the risk of a full purchase. Our figures show that over 95% of students who initially hire do go on to continue their instrument long term and as such buy outright. Prozone Music offer 2 unique 'cash back' schemes to make hiring or purchasing an instrument a perfect non risk solution whether they do or not.
INSTRUMENT HIRE/CASH BACK SCHEME:
How it works:
Payments are made every 3 months.
The minimum hire term is 3 months.
After the initial 3 month period, there is an option to buy. 50% of any hire payments made can be redeemed against the purchase of the instrument. If you hired a new instrument, you can retain this instrument or if you received an ex hire instrument this may be swapped for a new instrument should you wish.
You can redeem 50% of your rental payments against any upgraded instrument to that originally hired.
The maximum discount available is 50% of 6 months hire payments.
To hire an instrument please contact us. Details of school attended, instrument teacher/employer are required along with names, addresses, email and telephone contact. You can download a copy of the rental application form here and return the completed form by scanned email, by post (registered for security) or fax.
Most instruments we hire out are new and fully serviced but occasionally you may be offered one that is has been hired previously.

Example 1 - Mrs Greenwood hires a clarinet from Prozone Music. She makes an initial payment of £45 for the first 3 month term. After 3 months she thinks that her son Miles is still in the early stages and decides to hire for a further 3 months. She makes another £45 payment for a further 3 month term. After 6 months, Miles is doing really well and she is confident that he wants to continue and progress. She decides to buy the Buffet Prodige clarinet she hired outright. Having made £150 in hire payments, she is entitled to a £75 discount form the current purchase price of £359. Mrs Greenwood pays £284 and the clarinet is hers to keep!
Example 2 - As above, Mr Davis hires an Alto Sax for his daughter for 6 months (@ £20 per month). After 6 months, not only is Jennifer enjoying playing her sax greatly but she is making good headway towards her grade 1. Mr Davis decides that it would be a good idea to buy an upgraded instrument as his daughter is progressing so quickly. After help and advice from Prozone Music, he decides to buy a Yamaha 280 Alto Saxophone and receives a £60 discount from the current sale price of £835 and pays £775.
GUARANTEED BUY BACK SCHEME:
How it works:
This is ideal for those who are more confident of their 'sticking at it' capabilities or for those wishing to purchase an upgraded instrument. More expensive instruments hold their value better than more budget options. This can mean that buying an upgraded instrument or a more expensive brand of instrument straight away can be a wise option if budgets allow.
Prozone Music will guarantee to buy back any instrument purchased within the first 6 months. Provided the instrument has not been damaged in any way and has been looked after (signs of reasonable usage accepted) we can offer a very fair buy back price.
Examples of our buy back prices are:
Buffet Prodige Clarinet - Purchase Price £359 - Buy Back Price £269.25
Trevor James Classic Alto Sax - Purchase price £549 - Buy Back Price £411.75
Yamaha YTR2330 Trumpet - Purchase price £417 - Buy Back Price £312.75
Trevor James TJ10Xe Flute - Purchase price £399 - Buy Back Price £299.25
