Woodwind & Brass Rental

You, or your child, has the chance to have woodwind & brass lessons, but you're not sure where to start?   Of course, success is the goal, but what if the player doesn't take to it?

The temptation is to buy the cheapest instrument you can find.  Unfortunately cheap instruments are difficult to play, sound terrible, and willl almost certainly discourage the player from playing (imagine trying to learn to drive in a car with sloppy steering, awkward gear change and poor brakes).  Rental is the obvious answer - it gives the flexibility that enables lessons to begin.

Why rent?

  • A much lower initial outlay.  A years rental payments are still less than the cost of even a poor quality instrument
  • We provide good quality instruments that are professionally set up
  • Woodwind & brass instruments are supplied with a case
  • You can hand the instrument back and cancel your payments at any time
  • We give you a discount if you subsequently buy an instrument from us
  • The rental includes a specialist insurance policy

How do I go about renting an instrument from Sheehans?


Once you have decided on an instrument, we can set up the rental agreement while you are in the shop - this usually takes around 10-15mins.  We will need your name, address and bank account details*, including the address of your bank (this is printed in your chequebook, or on your bank statement), plus some form of identification such as a driving licence or passport.

The first three months' payment is made in the shop by either cash, credit or debit card; while you are in the shop we also set up a Direct Debit agreement which will be used for your next payment in 3 months time.

Should you wish to cancel at any time, you need to return the instrument at least 10 working days before the next payment is due, to give us enough time to cancel the agreement.

*You must have a valid current account capable of supporting Direct Debit
