Renting a Saxophone
Saxophonists almost always start on a rented saxophone.
Renting a saxophone has some advantages over buying one:
- Renting allows the player (and his/her parents) to see how serious and dedicated the player is before investing in a saxophone.
- Beginning saxophonists occasionally switch to another instrument; renting allows switching at minimal expense.
- The rental saxophone can take the initial wear-and-tear of learning how to handle and care for a sax.
- The Maintenance & Replacement plan keeps the saxophone playing well and replaces it if it's lost or stolen.
- There are several types of saxophones: soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, etc. Renting gives the player a chance to see which is most appropriate for them.
- Once they get past the basics, many saxophonists will move up from the beginner saxophone to an intermediate or performer saxophone.
- A portion of rent can be applied to the purchase of a saxophone.
Renting a saxophone is simple and inexpensive — rent is as little as $45 per month. You may continue renting for as long as you like or you may return it to Amro.
