The MSRP and contract length for each type of rental instrument is shown below.  We calculate the length of the contract by dividing the MSRP by the monthly cost.  If the instrument is rented for the entire length of the contract, the renter will automatically own the instrument.  To end the contract early, the renter may return the instrument, exchange to a different instrument, or pay-off early and save 40% on the remainder of the contract.

Strings work a little differently from the band instruments because a new string player is usually not big enough to play an adult-sized instrument.  The contract price is based on the MSRP of a full-sized instrument.  The rental principle paid builds as equity as the student moves from fractional (1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4) to full-size.  Once the renter is ready to own, they may pay off the full-size instrument they have, or upgrade to a step-up instrument and simply pay the difference.
