HornCraft Music carries a variety of high quality rental instruments.  Brands that we carry as part of our rental fleet include Armstrong, Bach, Jupiter, King, Selmer, and Vito.  Many of these instruments are made in the USA.

Enjoy the many benefits of renting locally!

  • Personal service
  • High quality instruments guaranteed to be in top playing condition
  • Easy access to repair services all year
  • Easy access to technical assistance
  • Competitive rates
  • Competitive rent-to-own program

Choose from one of three options:

  1. Flexible Rental Plan – After paying the minimum rental fee of two-months, you have the option to return the instrument at any time or exchange it for a different instrument if you want to try something new.  Rental fees are due bi-monthly in advance.
  2. Rent-To-Own Program – Have all of your rental fees go towards the “Rent-To-Own Purchase Price” with additional discounts for early purchase within the first year (20% in the first 6 months, 10% between 7 and 12 months)! 
  3. Outright Purchase – You can save money in the long run by purchasing your instrument up front.  If you know you or your child is committed to music this may be the best option for you!  Ask us for details on pricing.

An enormous thank you to Michael at HornCraft Music in Smithers! I met him yesterday & he was amazing, patient, open, friendly, and so knowledgeable & helpful! I highly recommend him for repairs, rentals and anything instrument related in the valley. I can now practice for my lessons without pain! Thank you so very much. HornCraft will definitely be my first go to for instruments.
