Saxophone Hire – Why it makes sense

Saxophone hire is an option that makes sense for a variety of reasons. It may be somebody’s first experience playing the sax and the question of whether they will enjoy it or not, a returning player who wants to give the sax a go again, or simply not wanting the capital outlay of purchasing a saxophone.

We have made it as simple as possible. Order online, we deliver, and the minimum hire term is only three months. After that you are free to continue the hire with no maximum period, use the Option to Purchase, or simply send the saxophone back free of charge. For more details please visit how it works.

Tenor Saxophones

The Dilemma:

You or your child has the chance to have saxophone lessons, but you’re not sure where to start.

If the saxophone is for a child, then they may not be ready for an alto saxophone and may need to start on a lightweight instrument like the Alpha Sax. An adult taking up the saxophone may want to try it out before committing to purchasing a saxophone.

Reasons for hiring a saxophone can be varied, but whatever the situation we can help.

The choices:

The temptation is to buy the cheapest instrument you can find and see you or they take to it. But can you imagine learning to drive in a car with sloppy steering, awkward gear change, poor brakes and a seat far to high or low? Not great and no difference with an instrument.

Your other choice? Hire a quality, professionally set up saxophone from us.

Things you need to know:

Unfortunately, cheap instruments are difficult to play, almost impossible to tune, sound terrible, and will almost certainly discourage anyone from playing.

There is absolutely no point in having the opportunity to learn the saxophone, paying for lessons, and trying to use an instrument not fit for purpose.

Problem solved:

We only stock high quality saxophones, professionally set up, and delivered with quality saxophone reeds to get you started. The result is a saxophone that is easier to play, sounds better and will help anyone to learn and progress.

If the saxophone turns out not to be the instrument of choice, you can send it back. If you need to change from the Alpha sax to alto, we'll arrange everything.

We have two goals. First,  to offer quality saxophones that help and encourage anyone to learn. The second is to make saxophone hire as simple and as easy as possible.

We Only Stock High Quality Saxophones

We only stock high quality, serviced instruments and the whole saxophone hire agreement is completed online and the saxophone delivered to your door. Every single saxophone is checked, serviced and play tested before it leaves us. If an instrument doesn't come up to scratch it will not leave us.

The brands we choose are always the best value for money, we have John Packer, Jupiter, Trevor James, and J Michael for hire.
