Rent vs Own

The Most Common Mistake People Make


“I found a GREAT DEAL on the internet.

If my child likes it, then I will buy a good one later”


DON’T purchase an instrument on the internet.  If you do, you are setting your child up for failure. These instruments are made with low quality materials that make it impossible to produce a good sound, cannot be repaired and are generally unplayable.  If you are not sure about the quality of an instrument you are considering....ASK a professional.

We cannot stress enough that there is no such thing as a good cheap instrument. The internet can make an instrument sound great but the quality is poor.

When to purchase

If your child is an advanced player, then upgrading and owning is a good option.  Seek out a reputable dealer to purchase the instrument. If you are renting, Veritas Instrument Rental has many upgraded and advanced instruments. The best part is that if you are a current rental customer, you have accrued rental credit.  That money goes towards the purchase of a new, advanced level instrument. If you are not enrolled in a rent to own program, there are other options.  We sell new and used name brand instruments so you will always get great quality at a great price. This is an investment that will last a lifetime.

Final Tips

We cannot stress enough that you should not purchase a cheap instrument from the internet. EVER!

If you do decide to purchase an instrument, find out what materials it's made from. Below is a list of materials that will signify the instrument is of a higher quality. While it isn't comprehensive, it will give you a better idea of what you should be looking for:

  • Brass and woodwind instruments (flute, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba) are generally made from yellow brass, which is 70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc.

  • Student clarinets are made from a composite plastic material. 

  • Professional or advanced clarinets are made from African Blackwood.

  • Stringed instruments are made from a spruce top, maple ribs and back, and the fingerboard is ebony.  Stringed instruments do not come in colors (such as white, pink, blue)

  • The special brown varnish and wood on higher quality stringed instruments continue to improve the sound of the instrument with age. That is why older stringed instruments are sought-after.

  • If the instrument does not have a maker label inside it is probably a poor quality instrument.
