Music instruments may be rented on a monthly basis, with a 3-month minimum rental term. Except for replacement of strings, rosin, mouthpieces, and reeds, any cost related to maintenance, repair or instrument replacement is covered by DMG. A refundable deposit, (equal to six months of rental fees), is required and may be applied toward purchase, if desired. The rental rates shown are for student instruments with finer quality instruments available at higher rates.
4/4, 3/4, and 1/2 sizes available. All rental violins include a case, bow, chin rest, strings, fine tuners, and rosin.
Alto sax rentals include a case, mouthpiece, ligature, cleaning swab, and polishing cloth (reeds must be purchased separately).
Trumpet rentals includes a case, mouthpiece, cleaning swabs, bore oil, and polishing cloth.
Rental keyboards, (either 76 or 88 keys), include basic voices (sounds) such as piano and organ, and include a deluxe foot pedal. Keys are either semi-weighted or graded, and touch sensitive (see informational guide).
Please be aware that cases, stands, benches, headphones, and cables are not included with rental keyboards.
DMG offers repair for most instruments and music gear, including electronics. Repairs may be made by DMG, or by qualified technicians and craftsmen partners. NOTE: Owners of items left with DMG for repair must retrieve their property within six months after being notified, or notification has been attempted, that the item is ready to be picked up. Items that are unclaimed for more than six months become the property of DMG.
Complete setups for electric or acoustic guitars (1 hr. min.). Labor rate doesn't include material costs (strings, etc.)
From simple to complex, DMG can repair your guitar. Labor rates (1 hour minimum) may vary depending on extent of repairs needed and don't include material costs. An exact labor rate will be provided prior to any work being done.
Most (but not all) electronic gear such as power amps, control boards, combo amps, etc. are repairable. The labor rate does not include material costs.
DMG buys used gear from private individuals at fair market prices. Sometimes it makes more sense (and dollars in your pocket) to have DMG sell your instrument or gear on consignment, especially expensive gear. DMG offers two consignment tiers, local (20%) or global (25%) - see details below.
DMG promotes your item(s) to potential local customers by showcasing through local social media sites and other means. Unless other arrangements are made, DMG handles collecting payment, delivering item(s) to buyer, and retains 20% of the final sale price.
DMG uses online retail sites like Reverb.com and eBay, as well as other internet-based sales outlets, to sell your item(s). DMG retains 25% of the final sale price and covers all listing, packaging/handling, and shipping costs.
