Instruments for hire

Very occasionally I have instruments available to hire on a monthly basis.
please email or phone for details. Prices vary according the particular instrument but start at £50/month. Customers are entirely responsible for hired instruments and are therefore required to provide adequate insurance.

  • A downpayment of 25% of the price of the instrument is required to secure a place on the waiting list. If the instrument's price is £3000 or above a further 25% is payable on my commencing manufacture.
  • This downpayment is not returnable once manufacture has begun.
  • In all cases the balance is payable on or before collection of the instrument.
  • Instruments remain my property until paid for in full.
  • Instruments not paid for in full after 6 weeks of notification of completion may be offered for sale.
  • Whilst every effort is made to complete work by a given date, due to the nature of the work, this cannot be guaranteed.
  • Instruments are guaranteed for 1 year against defects in materials and workmanship. After this time, I will assess any problems individually. Anything I think is my fault, I will do my best to remedy without charge.
  • Any rental agreements are made on the understanding that the customer has adequate insurance for the instrument. Any loss or damage is the customers responsibility.
  • The prices quoted do not include cases, insurance or shipping. Cases can be supplied. Prices can be quoted on request.
  • All payments must be made in Pounds Stirling and, depending on payment method, all bank charges must be met by the customer.
  • Prices are usually revised annually.
  • Payment by installments can sometimes be arranged. Please ask for details.
