Instrument Rentals

We're Ready for Back to School!
Rent an Instrument from West Valley
Music Center

Renting is the ideal way to learn how to play an instrument without having to make a large investment. All of our instruments are of high-quality, each one carefully and thoroughly inspected by us when we receive them from our suppliers. Learning on high-quality instruments makes it much easier to learn how to play, avoiding the frustration and lack of interest that results from attempting to play the poorly-maintained instruments often found at big-box stores and impersonal online-only instrument rental stores.

Why Rent From Us?

Rent your instrument from us and you'll receive:

A high-quality, easily-playable, clean instrument thoroughly inspected by Jeff, the store owner—and a musician himself

Superior one-on-one service

Unbeatable prices and a generous rent-to-own option

Worry-free rentals with our new insurance plan

The convenience of a local shop in your neighborhood

So for strings, brass, woodwinds, guitars, keyboards, drums, or bell kits, rent with us—we're here to serve you!

Reserve Your Instrument Online  Reserve Now!

We are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to reserve their instruments online. Simply click on the purple box above to begin your reservation process; we'll have your instrument ready for you when you arrive. Please allow six hours for us to get your instrument ready from the time you submit your online rental request. If you make your reservation after noon, or on Sunday, we'll have it ready the next day.

Our Great Rent-to-Own Option

If you decide that you want to keep the instrument you've been using, or if you want to own another one of equal or greater value, we have two great options for our terrific rent-to-own program!

For new instruments, the first 12 months of rent is applied toward the purchase of that instrument or one of greater or equal value—at 25% off the MSRP.

For used instruments, the first 12 months of rent is applied toward the purchase of that instrument or one of greater or equal value, at WVMC's marked, discounted price.

With no fees and no interest, either option gives you plenty time to decide if you want to make the leap to ownership while still becoming comfortable with your instrument. Just contact us and we'll be happy to discuss your instrument rental needs with you, or click here for details.

How Much Does It Cost to Rent an Instrument?

Click on the instrument list on the right for rental rates for our fully-inspected used instruments, as well as for our high-quality new instruments (if available). The rental rates are the same no matter the term length; each rental has a two-month minimum.

What Happens if the Instrument is Damaged or Stolen While I'm Renting It?

We know that accidents happens. We provide two options to cover damage that might occur to the instrument while it's in your possession (you must choose one):

For less risk and peace of mind, you may purchase our instrument liability insurance ($5 or $7 per month, depending on the instrument) which waives your liability on any unintentional damage that occurs to the instrument and/or case, if applicable, or if the instrument and/or case is stolen. All you pay is a low deductible, and then you will receive a replacement instrument of the same value. Click here for details.

You leave us a damage deposit of $100. This deposit will be returned in full within 30 days of return of instrument after our repair person's inspection, provided that the instrument is returned in the same good condition (normal wear and tear excepted) as when first rented.

Instrument liability insurance is not offered for cellos; these require a damage deposit of $100.

Please note that a credit card is required for all rentals.
