Renting a Percussion Kit
Percussion kits can contain a variety of equipment, depending on the planned curriculum and needs of the band. A typical kit includes a 2-octave aluminum bell set, a
tunable drum practice pad or shallow drum, a stand, snare
sticks, and bell
mallets — all fit compactly into a luggage-style rolling bag
or a padded bag with
a sturdy strap.
Most percussionists begin playing on a rented percussion kit selected by the band director according to the instrumentation needed in the band.
Some of the advantages of renting are:
- Percussionist sometimes decide they'd rather play another instrument instead; renting allows changing instruments at minimal expense.
- The rental kit takes the initial wear-and-tear of learning to handle and care for the instruments.
- The maintenance & replacement plan keeps the percussion kit playing properly and replaces it if it's lost or stolen.
- Renting allows time to see how serious the student will be and to determine which percussion instruments interest him or her most.
- The a portion of the rent applies to the purchase of the kit or other instrument the student might choose to play.
Renting a percussion kit is simple and inexpensive, with rent as little as $21 per month. You many continue renting for as long as you like or return the kit to Amro at your convenience.
