Most band students start their musical careers with a quality student level instrument, either rented or purchased. At a certain point in their musical development (usually between the first and second year of playing) many students find they’re ready to upgrade to a high quality performance level instrument. Menchey Music Service carries a large selection of both Intermediate and Professional level band instruments.
Menchey Music makes moving up to a performance grade instrument simple. For students who currently have an active band instrument rental with us, a percentage of your payments apply using the following criteria:
- Intermediate Level Instruments: At any point while renting a student band instrument, 100% of net rental payments* (up to 24 months) can be applied toward a select Intermediate Grade Step-Up Instrument. Once this credit is applied, the intermediate instrument may be rented using our Rent to Own plan or purchased outright.
- Professional Level Instruments: At any point while renting a student band instrument, 60% of net rental payments* (up to 24 months) can be applied toward a Professional Grade Instrument. Professional Instruments are available for outright purchase only.
* Net Monthly Rental Payments are Total Monthly Rental Payments less tax, M&R Fees and Cost of Lease Services.
Customers who own a student level instrument (i.e. customers whose rental instruments are paid off) may be eligible for trade in credit and are encouraged to contact us. To inquire about upgrading to an Intermediate or Professional Band Instrument, please complete the form below, visit one of our retail stores, or call 888-636-2439.
