We are pleased to provide the finest instrument rental program in the Greater Puget Sound area. We provide educator approved instruments that are all in New or Like New condition, and have all the accessories and books to start you off right!
Our program is designed to give back to your school, with every rental your school earns rewards that the music director can use for accessories, supplies, repairs, even instruments. In addition, all regularly priced purchases at Leading Tone and The Guitar Store earn rewards for your school as well.
For most instruments, your get one month FREE rent and the instrument is covered for, theft, damage and maintenance (some restrictions apply). Loaner instruments are available while your instrument is being repaired.
Base rental fees are credited towards the purchase of your instrument and may be applied towards a trade in for a different instrument or size . So changing instruments or upgrading to a larger size is no hassle at all.
Here is a recent review.
We just rented my daughter’s violin from Leading Tone. The experience was fantastic. The owner, John, fit my daughter. The monthly rental fee applies to the purchase of the instrument. If you decide to move to a different instrument, the rental money applies to the purchase of that instrument as well. The violin we got was in excellent condition, much better than the one we had from Kennelly Keys, the service was excellent, the price is competitive plus money goes back to our schools! And, if you need something at the school, it will be delivered there for you. Plus, parking is easy and I bet some of us can walk there.
My daughter enjoyed the experience and wants to post a review on yelp. She is in 6th grade at Hamilton.
