Why Finance a Musical Instrument?
Not sure if you would benefit from financing an instrument or renting one? If you plan to purchase a long-term musical instrument as a student or you're at the professional level and want to upgrade, financing offers a payment structure similar in amount to renting. After you have paid off the full amount, you will officially own your guitar, piano, orchestral, or percussion instrument or recording gear, able to call it your own and count on it for future progress and performance.
Along with this advantage, applying for a loan is straightforward, with zero to low interest rates available. In most cases, your credit won't be pulled.
Because many see the upfront cost as a hurdle to learning or progressing on a musical instrument, here's what you should know about financing.
- Credit vs. Loans: This type of payment plan is equivalent to a store credit card, with no-interest financing over a specific period - for instance, 48 months. Because interest can increase after this point, you're recommended to pay off the amount by the end of this duration. Loans, by contrast, will be written for a specific period, during which you'll be expected to make monthly payments.
- Shop around before you make a commitment: Financing a musical instrument shouldn't ever be a spur-of-the-moment decision. Instead, you're advised to try out models and constructions and get advice from your instructor or peers about design, sound quality and features. Expect to take at least a year of researching and exploring before finding the instrument that suits you.
- Create a budget: This aspect can further narrow down your search and refine your financing options. Even with a loan or credit, it's a good idea to make an upfront payment, especially if you're looking for a quality, long-term instrument. Realize that loans may only fund part of the cost, and you're advised to be ready to pay at least 50 percent of the total.
