Do I rent or buy my sons/daughters instrument?
What if he/she doesn’t like it?
Are there different sizes?
These are all very good questions to consider. It is generally a good idea to rent if the person playing is a beginner. This will give you the option of turning in the instrument if it is not needed. However, most rental instruments are of “student” level quality versus intermediate, professional or custom quality. With a student level quality instrument, it allows the player to produce a good sound without really having to know how to play the instrument. Depending on what instrument you are deciding on can also play a big part of the decision.
String Instruments: Generally, if you are choosing a string instrument (violin, viola, cello or upright bass) it is suggested to rent. String instruments are available in several sizes and as the player grows a bigger size will be needed. Renting the instrument allows you to upgrade the size whereas if you purchased the instrument you would be responsible for selling it.
Brass/Woodwind Instruments: If you are choosing a brass or woodwind instrument, these are available in one size fits all. Purchasing one of these instruments is a good idea as long as you know the player will continue playing. If the player is unsure of the time commitment and will outgrow the instrument, renting is preferred. If totally unsure, come into Mozingo Music and see one of our experts.
