Learn More about the Try Before You Buy Program

Whether you’re a student just starting out or an experienced musician ready for an upgrade, it’s important to test an instrument before purchasing. At MMI, we understand the subtle nuances of each instrument, so we offer one-week instrument trials without charge to you except for the cost of shipping. Our staff of passionate, experienced woodwind experts is here to guide you through the process of selecting a new instrument.

MMI is so much more than an instrument trial service. Our staff of conservatory trained musicians and skilled repair technicians offer everything from instrument selection assistance to instrument maintenance. Make sure to check out the rest of our offerings below.
