Instrument Rentals

Whether you need to rent an instrument for an entire school-year, for a month-to-month rental, for a one-day performance, or as a prop for a television/theater production, we will be more than happy to assist you!

Jon Baltimore Music Co. rents all types of woodwind and brass instruments on daily, weekly and monthly terms for student, professional and industry use.

We proudly rent the same high-quality new and vintage instruments that we sell in our shop. In fact, we actively limit the number of low-end imports in our instrument inventory, so that we can confidently cover the instruments we rent and sell with a robust service guarantee.

In general, higher-end instruments (i.e. Buffet R-13, Selmer Mark VI, Bach Stradivarius, etc.) are only rented out for professional, short-term use at a daily rate. We offer longer-term rental options for all other instruments in our inventory. If you have a question about whether we offer a long-term rental option for a specific instrument listed on our web site, get in touch with us by phone, email, through our social media pages, or drop by the shop to speak with us in person when you are in the neighborhood.
