Make Time for Music

We are pleased to be working with "Make Time for Music" pupils in Kent schools. We can help by providing instruments at low cost and no commitment to purchase. Instruments are delivered carriage free to Make Time for Music pupils - a saving of £7.

Pure Rental

Our "Pure Rental" scheme enables you to try an instrument at a very moderate cost for as long as you like. No rental term, just a flat rate each month for as long as you want the instrument.

After 3 months, you can either continue renting for as long as you want or purchase a new instrument. We will deduct 50% of all your rental payments from the cost of a new instrument bought from us.

The instruments are normally ex-rental instruments, which have been checked and cleaned in our workshop, ready for their next student. We can not specify the make and model of instrument you will be renting as it will depend on our current stock (apart from Pure Rental Plus). All instruments come as an outfit.

The Scheme

  • Flexible rental scheme, low cost monthly payments
  • Minimum 3 months rental - no maximum term (instruments will remain the property of Ackerman Music at all times)
  • 50% of total rental payments deducted when you purchase a new instrument from us
  • Payment for the first 3 months is by credit or debit card. After that we take the payment monthly by Direct Debit.
  • Instruments can be returned at any time (minimum of 3 months rental)
  • "Peace of Mind" insurance cover against loss or damage is included in the rental price. The hirer is responsible for up to 25% of the RRP of the instrument.
  • Free maintenance for the rental term
