No hidden fees! All of the rental rates listed include routine maintenance due to normal wear and tear of the instrument. (Abuse/neglect is not covered.) We have a wide variety of rental instruments to fit any musician’s needs and budget.  Although we try our best, we cannot guarantee the availability of specific rental instruments.
