After students have learned and played on a beginner level instrument for a few years, it might be time for them to step-up to an intermediate level instrument. This upgrade will give them a better sound as well as greater playability!

Setting up a Step-Up Night at your school will give students a great opportunity to take advantage of discounted prices, interest free financing, and rental credit transfers through our Rent Plus+ instrument rental program (not to mention increase the production quality of your band).

Please note that these events are not high pressure! We are not trying to convince anyone to purchase anything they are not ready to buy. We simply want to educate students and parents on the benefits of intermediate and professional level instruments! If they are interested in purchasing, we love to give great discounts and provide great financing options!

Instrument Discounts

On Step-Up nights, we do special pricing! Anyone can come to our store at any time to buy instruments, but we like to give a little extra at these instrument nights. We understand that instruments are a big investment for students and their parents and we want to make sure they get what they want for a great price!

Instrument Financing

We are happy to offer musical instrument financing through Allegro Credit. This gives families the ability to purchase a step up instrument without the burden of the cost. Allegro's online application and approval process is quick and easy and can be done on site. Also through Allegro, customers are looking at flexible terms, fixed APR, affordable monthly payments all with this awesome "same as cash" financing!

Rental Credit

Our Rent Plus+ instrument rental program is a beautiful thing when it comes time to step up to a new instrument! If your students have been renting with us, they can trade in their rental and use their payment credit towards a step-up instrument!


Along with a variety of used instruments, we can get new and custom orders from the dealers listed below and more!
