Rental is fast and easy.  You may rent in-person at the store.  Or you can rent online and we'll deliver the instrument to your school.  You can also download our rental contract, fill it out and fax it to us at 440-357-5615.  We'll complete the contract and deliver the instrument to your school or hold it for pickup.
