What product(s) can I hire?

  • A musical instrument or a musical instrument + accessories. (B-stock models are possible too.)
  • The price range of musical instruments you can hire differs per product category. Click on the category you are interested in above to find out more.

What does it cost?

  • Please note:
    • The prices used to calculate the hire price, the deposit and the hire purchase price are based upon the purchase price of the item in our webshop at the time the hire contract is agreed.
    • The hire price, the deposit and the hire purchase price are always rounded up to the nearest whole pound.
  • The hire price per month = the total amount of the hired products divided by 15.
    • The minimum hire period is 4 full months + any remaining days in the first month of hire. After this period, the contract can be cancelled from the first day of the following month. If you don't get in touch with Bax Music, the contract will be automatically extended for another month without notice.
    • The first payment consists of: one month's hire + the hire price for any remaining days in the first month + the deposit. After this, you'll just pay the hire price per month. Payments will be deducted automatically around the end of each month by direct debit.
  • The deposit (one-off payment) = the total amount of the hired products divided by 3.
    • The deposit will be returned to the hiree so long as the instrument is returned to Bax Music in good condition. Hired instruments will follow the standard returns procedure.
    • Signs of use such as fingerprints are no problem, but scratches, other damage and missing parts will mean that the full deposit amount will not be returned. The amount you get back will be determined by our After Sales team who will assess the instrument. Bear in mind that some parts may need to be replaced, like drumheads for example. Costs like these will also be deducted from the deposit and are likely to be around 10% of the deposit amount paid. Naturally, this is entirely dependent upon the amount of wear and tear.

Hire cost example

Please note: this is an example only and no rights can be derived from it. Actual terms & conditions are detailed above.

  • Example: you hire a guitar with a bag and a stand on 20th April.
  • If the total price of these products is £420:
  • then the hire price per month will be £420 / 15 = £28
  • the (one-off) deposit will be £420 / 3 = £140
  • the hire price for the remaining days in April (10 days) will be (£28 / 30) x 10 = £10 (rounded up to the nearest whole pound)
  • In this example, the first payment would therefore be:
    • Hire price for the remaining days in April: £10
    • Hire price for the month of May: £28
    • Deposit: £140
    • Total: £178
  • In the example above, after the first payment, you would then pay £28 per month (in this case from June onwards).
  • Because the minimum hire period is 4 full months + any remaining days in the first month of hire, in the example above, the hire period would last up until 31st August at least (the remaining days in April + May, June, July and August).
  • If you cancel the contract and return the guitar and accessories to Bax Music in good condition, the deposit will be returned to you.

What is hire purchase?

  • If you fall in love with the product you've hired and you want to keep it after the hire period ends, you'll have the opportunity to buy it. The following calculation will be used to determine the price:

    The price of the product(s) new - the deposit - half of the hire amount paid = the amount you'll need to pay to purchase the hired product(s).

    (With hire purchase, you won't get the deposit you paid back. It will be taken off the total purchase price of the product(s) as they were at the time when the hire contract was agreed.)
  • You can only choose hire purchase after the minimum hire period has been completed.

Hire purchase example

Please note: this is an example only and no rights can be derived from it. Actual terms & conditions are detailed above.

  • Example: you hire a guitar pack with a new price of £420.
  • You pay a total of £112 (4 months x £28) to hire these products before you decide to purchase them.
  • In this example, the following amounts would apply:
    • Price of product(s) new: £420
    • - deposit: £140
    • - half of the hire amount paid (£112 / 2): £56
    • Price to purchase hired product(s): £224
