Rentals

Go To Rentals

We want to be certain we can contact you if there are ever any discrepancies in your account or while your instrument may be in for a repair. This information ensures we are able to be as cost efficient and timely in keeping records for our rental program.

MOST of the payment does. Everything except the monthly repair protection fee goes towards your rental credit, resulting in instrument purchase if desired.

Mouthpieces & strings themselves are not covered in rental repairs. Placement of strings is no charge, but we will ask for payment of the actual strings. Maintenance is covered EXCEPT in cases of negligence or intentional damage. We may also charge for the repair if previous repair work has been attempted by anyone other than Brass Bell Music staff.

Repairs

Go To Repairs

If prearranged with our repair department during business hours. However, keep in mind many parts have to be fitted properly so we would advise that you have some experience with the repair before purchasing individual parts.

If the instrument is a rental, however, we strongly recommend having one of our highly skilled technicians do the repair for you, as part of your monthly payment covers most repair work (see Rental section for list of repairs included).

Nope! All estimates are free!

After the repair is finished. All prices quoted are estimates first as the repair may take slightly less or more which would adjust the price.

Generally, no. We often have a quick turnaround time available and will work with you to ensure you will get your instrument back as soon as possible.

However, loaner instruments are available for extreme circumstances - set up exactly like out rentals with a rate starting at $24.24.

Nope! Bring it in – we keep single strings at our front counter. Any of our knowledgeable staff should be able to quickly change it for you for just the price of the string. No extra charge!

It is recommended to service and get your instrument cleaned at least yearly to maintain the playability and keep them free of corrosion, moisture build up, and germs.

School Services

Brass Bell does provide pickup and delivery service to the 168+ schools we service.

Print

Contact Print Dept

Due to copyright and licensing laws, we cannot accept sheet music returns.

However, if you purchase the wrong method book, don’t worry! We will allow you to return (provided it has not been written in) and pick-up the correct book.

We order from all major publishers and many small and foreign publishers. We would be happy to order in whatever you need. If you can’t find a specific song, we may be able to print it for you in-store. Please be aware, all digital prints are not eligible for discounts or returns.

It's never too early to start looking for WSMA music! November or December is a perfect time to start shopping. As the contest dates get closer (in February and March), we may sell out of many WSMA pieces we have in stock and it may be difficult to order it in time.

Keep in mind every performer needs an ORIGINAL performance copy and a judge's copy. Photocopies are not allowed, and may get you disqualified.

Also, have fun! WSMA is a great opportunity to work on fun and challenging repertoire and receive recognition for your hard work!
