School Instrument Rental

SSE Music is proud to serve dozens of school districts in western Wisconsin and neighboring Minnesota counties. We work closely with your school's music director to make sure your child gets the instrument that is the best fit for a successful and fun school music experience!

We offer monthly rental contracts at competitive rates for most band and orchestra instruments and inexpensive entry-level plans for students just starting out in a school band or orchestra program.

We're also proud to provide professional maintenance and repair services for any instrument with our in-store repair facilities. (Click here to see our repair shops)

Your safety is our top priority!

Your student starting band or orchestra shouldn't have to take a back seat. At SSE Music, we are taking every step neccessary to best ensure you and your student's safety trying out instruments!

If you are interested in having your student play test instruments, here are the things we are doing to keep everything sanitary:

  • We ask that you call ahead to let us know you would like to play test. Walk ins are always welcome, but this gives us time to prep instruments for your arrival.
  • Our staff handles the instrument, while your student will be asked to only blow into the mouthpiece or reed. We want each student to have as little interaction with each instrument, while still experiencing the instrument as much as possible.
  • Any reeds used for your student's play test are sanitized or replaced after the play test is done.
  • After each use, our brass & woodwind mouthpieces are sanitized with a 70% isopropyl alcohol by volume spray.

With all these safety precautions in place, SSE Music makes it easy and safe for your student to pick out their favorite instrument! You can call us at (608) 781-2850 or email us at music@ssemusic.com to set up a play test today!

What makes our rental plan right for you?

  • Monthly contracts with no long-term obligation: Rent the instrument for as long as you like...return it when you're done, or purchase when you're ready! Instruments can also be exchanged at any time (with the approval of the student's instructor).
  • All maintenance and repairs are included: We take care of all regular maintenance and repair of damage to any rental instrument free of charge! Lost or stolen instruments may be replaced at no cost, if a valid police report is provided.
  • We come to your school: Our store representatives visit every school in our service area once a week during the school year (with occasional visits during Summer months), so if you need anything and can't make it to our store, just call us and we'll arrange for the pick up or delivery of whatever you need! Also, each school has a special coupon code, so ask your student's instructor to have free delivery to the school for online purchases.
  • Earn credit toward purchase: Up to 24 months* of rent payments can be put toward the purchase of your rental instrument or an instrument of equal or greater value. Call us any time to discuss your options!
    *Depending on instrument and rental plan; ask us for details.
  • Earn MORE with our Rental Rewards program: If you take special care of your rental instrument, we can reward you with an additional $100.00 toward purchase!*
    *Terms apply; ask us for details.

​We take pride in the work that we put into making sure our rental instruments are in tip-top working order and to ensure that your child has what they need. To that end, your initial contract payment will be non-refundable to help defray our costs. Thank you for understanding!
