School is about to start and if your child signed up for band, that means it’s time to get an instrument!
Jim’s Music in Green Bay can help and they offer many options. They have all the instruments you need. You can purchase new or used, or, if you don’t want to commit because you aren’t sure if your child will want to stick with band or the same instrument, you can rent. Renting can be a more affordable solution for many families and all the money spent on the rental goes toward the purchase of the instrument if you decide to buy it in the future. Renting also gives you the ability to switch instruments at any time if your child changes their mind down the road. (You can still apply the money spent on the original rental towards the next instrument they select.)
Some of the great features of Jim’s Music Rental Program are:
-100% of rent applies to purchase
-Low monthly rates
-No obligation to purchase
-Month-to-month contracts that can end at any time
-Easy instrument exchange policy
-Purchase early & save
-Quality name brand instruments
-In-store repair facility
Rental instruments are new or like new and are the same price with the only difference being how long it takes to pay it off. It is recommended that students begin with like new instruments and later upgrade to new, if desired. Some supplies come with each instrument (i.e. 1 reed and cork grease), but Jim’s Music also sells care kits that include all needed supplies and accessories. Monthly payments for rentals are set up as auto-payments from credit card or bank accounts.
Jim’s Music is the most affordable rent-to-own program in the area, offering band-director approved quality instruments with a 7 year warranty. Jim’s is able to offer the lowest prices by carrying one major brand that sells the most student line instruments on the market. Fire and theft insurance is also included with the maintenance plan at no additional cost, compared to the competition where this is an additional fee.
Costs for instruments are as follows (plus $5/month maintenance fee and tax):
$20/month: Drum Kit, Bell Kit
$24/month: Clarinet, Flute, Piccolo, Violn/Viola Combo Percussion Kit
$26/month: Trumpet, Trombone
$36/month: Cello (1/4-3/4)
$49/month: Alto Saxophone, Cello
$59/month: Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Oboe, French Horn
So if you need a band instrument for your child this fall, go to Jim’s Music and they will set you up with everything you need at a price you can afford! Plus, get the second month FREE as their way of saying thanks for choosing them!
