Rent To Own

An affordable way to start playing music

If you’re not ready to buy, renting an instrument is an affordable way to get introduced to the world of music.

All rental instruments are part of our Rent-to-Own Program. This gives you the flexibility to return the instrument at any time without penalty or you may take advantage of an early payoff option and buy it out at any time with an additional discount.

When you choose to rent at DuBaldo Music, you can expect a stress-free and enjoyable experience. Our great selection of rental instruments includes free maintenance and normal repairs. Instruments are in new or very good condition. Every rental is hand-inspected and disinfected in accordance with CDC, NFHS, and NAFME guidelines. You can rent online and visit us in store to pick up the instrument!
