Whether you’re choosing your first instrument or upgrading, we’re here to make the process as easy as possible. We understand that it can be difficult to find the perfect partnership between player and instrument.

Our approvals facility enables you to trial instruments and accessories for 7 days before deciding whether to buy or not. This gives you the chance to comprehensively test new instruments and accessories in the familiar acoustics and comfort of your own home or practice environment, and with the possibility of the items being checked by your teacher.

There is a nominal charge for this to cover admin & insurance.  Please note a delivery charge (£10 for instruments, varies for accessories) will apply depending on the size of items taken on approval.
