See the instrument groups below in the boxes with the gold buttons to determine which plan (either Rent-To-Own or Lease-To-Lease) you will be on. 


Central Instrument Company has developed a great, low-risk rental plan to help you and your child get started in music. Probably, the greatest worry we hear from parents is paying a lot for an instrument only to have their child not stay in band or orchestra. We believe our rental plans relieve that concern and many others.

Central Instrument Company has been serving schools throughout northeast Ohio since 1979. We visit many schools on a weekly basis in order to deliver and pick up rental instruments and accessories for you, our customer. Should you need service we are just an email or phone call away.


We have two types of plans.

  1. One is our Rent-to-Own Plan that is available for the main group of band instruments; Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion. Click on the Gold Button below by these instruments.

  2. The second plan we offer is our Lease-to-Lease Plan. This plan is available for Violin, Viola, Cello, String Bass and background wind instruments which include Tenor Saxophone, Oboe, Single French Horn and Baritone. Click on the Gold Button below by these instruments.
