Not able to purchase a new instrument today? Our layaway program is a terrific option for everyone from families making musical purchases on a tight budget to those who need to keep big box purchases a secret until just the right moment. For no additional cost, we’ll set aside your instrument to be picked up at a later date. Ask a sales associate for more details!
