Band Instrument Rental Program

NMC rents high quality, brand-name instruments that are recognized and endorsed by educators. New or used, we guarantee your instrument is clean, sterile, and in great playing condition.

36 Months or Less

Each rental has a contract length of 36 months or less, depending on the total purchase price of the instrument. Other programs may offer a lower monthly rate at the expense of a much longer contract. NMC's program strikes the right balance between a short contract term and affordable monthly payment.


Monthly rental payments are applied towards ownership of the instrument. A debit or credit card on file is required for all rentals. Payments are automatically withdrawn on the 1st of the month.

Maintenance Included

All instruments have a flat-rate maintenance fee of $5 per month. This $5 is bundled in your total monthly payment. Maintenance covers regular adjustments and minor repairs that occur during normal use. It also covers a yearly cleaning and tune-up during summer break. Maintenance does not cover damage from mishandling or abuse.

Flexible Upgrades & Exchanges

We offer a one-time upgrade or exchange on your contract. You can switch to a different instrument or upgrade to a more advanced model. We'll apply the total principle credit from your original contract to the new instrument contract.

Early Payoff Discount

If you pay off your instrument early, we can offer you a discount off the total purchase price. The discount we offer is based on the time and balance remaining on your contract.  Get the biggest discount when you pay off your contract in the first 12 months of renting.

Easy Returns

You may return your rental instrument at any time as long as your account is current. When you return your instrument, all accrued rental principle is forfeited and your contract is closed.

Rent Online

Skip the store and rent online! Our online rental portal is up and running. If you need help, call us at (715) 420-0555 for assistance.

Students will need some extra materials in addition to their instrument. Students are required to purchase a book and maintenance kit with their instrument. You may also need to purchase reeds or other materials. We'll show you exactly what you need when you begin your rental.

Adults renting an instrument for personal use don't need to purchase any additional accessories.
