SCHOOL BAND RENTALSBAND INSTRUMENT ASSEMBLY AND MAINTENANCE VIDEOS
Welcome to the STARVING MUSICIAN!
We have been renting, selling, buying and repairing band instruments in the bay area since 1985.
You need to come into one of our three stores to rent. A major credit card, or check card with a VISA or MASTERCARD logo is required to rent with us. All instruments have a 3-month minimum rental period. The first month’s rent and a deposit are due at signing.
RENT TO OWN
All of our rentals are “Rent-To-Own”. At any time during your rental, you may choose to buy the instrument rented. 60% of the rent you’ve paid (on time) along with 100% of your deposit will be applied towards the purchase price.
HOW DO I PAY AFTER THE FIRST MONTH?
We will automatically charge your credit card every month. This is a free service that we offer so that you don't have to worry about remembering to pay every month. You can also set up automatic payments through your bank.
WHAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO THE INSTRUMENT?
Concerned about your rental instrument being damaged? For an additional monthly fee, our optional Maintenance and Repair Policy covers damage outside of willful abuse and neglect. If you’re not covered by our M&R policy, you may be charged for any repairs outside of normal wear & tear. The Starving Musician Repair Shop handles everything from minor adjustments to complete overhauls. Minor adjustments on your rental instruments can often be made while you wait. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THE INSTRUMENT. THIS WILL VOID YOUR MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR COVERAGE.
