Fort Worth Music Store offers a wide range of instrument
rentals through our partner:

How to Rent an Instrument in 8 Easy Steps!


When you go to the website, it should
look like this:


You will need to enter our store code to access the rental menu page. Just enter “palette” and then press the green GO button to take you to the next page.


If you see Musical Palette and our address, everything is how it should be! Go ahead and click on the SHOP NOW button to get to the next page.


You should see a wide variety of instruments to choose from. Take your time and search for what you’re looking for. If you are looking to rent a larger instrument like a Cello, Bassoon, Baritone Sax or Tuba, please contact the store for more assistance.


On the page of the instrument you selected, you get to choose a primary and secondary brand to select from if your band director recommends certain brands over others. If you’re unsure about one of the brands, ask your band director if they will be acceptable for their students. Once you have made your selection, you get the option to rent or purchase.


You’ll get to this screen when you’re ready to check out. Although it is optional, it is highly recommended to include the Loss and Damage Waiver with your instrument. The monthly price of this waiver is typically very small and is worth every penny should anything unwanted happen to the instrument. Not selecting this option will hold you liable to pay for anything that happens to the instrument! Don’t take any chances and select this option!


You’re almost done! When you see this screen, just fill in the proper information where it’s required.


This section gives you options to have the instrument either delivered to our store for pickup or shipped directly to your home! Choose which option works best with you.
