Music Instrument Rental from Brittens

Instrument Rental from Brittens Music Tunbridge Wells Kent and New Haw Surrey



Not sure if your child will practice? Want to try something out yourself? We offer a low-cost rental scheme with an option to purchase at a substantial discount when you come to buy. Strings, woodwind, brass, digital pianos, keyboards and drums are available on the scheme. Very popular and designed to be flexible during the early stages of you or your child's musical journey; Brittens 'Five Star Rental' has won many fans since its inception with thousands of people taking advantage.


  • Only commit to buying when you are ready, or return if giving up
  • Quality Instruments
  • Professional help choosing the right instrument
  • Free 'size' upgrades
  • Low cost entry route to buying an instrument; buy at a time to suit you

Gone is the need to worry if your child is going to give up soon after purchasing an instrument or has to move to a larger size because of a growing spurt. With the Scheme you have an open ended rental agreement with a minimum period of 6 months*.

Our rental instruments are chosen for their quality and durability and our simple insurance gives peace of mind in the event of accidental damage occurring.

It means you don’t have to commit to buying an instrument until you are certain you are going to continue playing. If you then purchase an instrument, a discount equal to the payments made during the minimum period (6 months maximum) is offered against the purchase price of the instrument of your choice.

We have had some wonderful feedback from teachers, players and parents that our scheme has helped them or their students onto the musical ladder, giving individuals, who might not otherwise have had the chance, to fulfil their musical aspirations. Also if you find you or your child needs to go up a size (yes, adults sometimes need a different size viola for example) you can simply exchange your rental instrument to the required size as part of your rental agreement. Most types of instrument are available for hire subject to availability.

Brittens Music Instrument Rental Terms and Conditions

All prices include VAT and are subject to change without notice.
Instruments are subject to availability. Alternatives may be offered.
Delivery is available for larger instruments – please ask for a quote.


The rental is for minimum period of 6 months (see below), then monthly until the instrument is returned.


Rental payments are monthly in advance and are paid by direct debit

Initial Admin. (Administration) Fee

An Administration Fee is taken at the start of the rental period.

Purchase Option

Should you wish to purchase the instrument you are hiring, you will be entitled to a discount of six times the monthly rental. If you are the first user of the instrument, this discount only applies to the instrument you have hired or one of greater value. If your instrument was not new at the commencement of the agreement, the hire fees may be set against the instrument you are renting (which will be reduced accordingly), a new instrument of the same type (subject to availability) or one  of greater value.

Option to Return

The hirer is responsible for returning the instrument to a branch of Brittens Music Direct when no longer required. In the event that this is before the end of the minimum term, the balance of the minimum rental fee is payable.


Any instrument rented from us can be insured against loss or damage from as little as £1.50 per month. We strongly recommend this option as sometimes children can be heavy-handed and accidents can happen. A £25 excess applies.
