We recommend that you rent your instrument first to guarantee a quality instrument that works. ESPECIALLY SINCE STUDENTS WILL OUT GROW THEIR INSTRUMENT needing to move onto a larger size. With a rental, you simply send it back to the company and they send you a new size. Instruments break from time to time, with a rental you mail it to the company, and they mail to you another one. It is always a good idea to add insurance into your rental package.
STUDENTS MUST BE SIZED BY A TEACHER PRIOR TO RENTING OR PURCHASING YOUR INSTRUMENT.
On Line or local instrument rental is very common.
