Musical instruments can be very expensive, and we understand that it is often necessary to break a puchase down into manageable amounts. We do this in two ways.


If there is an instrument you want to reserve, we can put it aside for you on payment of a non-refundable 10% discount and the agreement of a schedule of regular payments to clear the remaining balance. The instrument is yours once the balance is cleared. Layaway is particularly useful for securing one off instruments, such as sale, pre-owned or reconditioned models that we won't be able to get for you again, or offer you that price, once they are sold.

Take It Away (0% Finance Scheme)

Take It Away provides interest-free loans for the purchase of musical instruments, equipment, and software. It is available to UK residents, who have a regular income that exceeds £5,000 per year and are either 18-25 years old, or over 18 and buying an instrument for a child under 18.

All applicants must:

  • Be over 18 years old
  • Be a permanent UK resident
  • Have a regular income that exceeds £5,000 per year
  • Hold a bank or building society account capable of handling direct debit payments

Loans are subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.

You can get a Take it away interest free loan of between £700 and £5,000. If the cost of the instrument/s you want to buy exceeds the £5,000 loan limit, you can use Take it away as a part-payment towards the instrument/s. You would then need to pay the remaining balance by an alternative method. It is not possible to split the cost of an instrument/s over more than one loan application.

We may also offer interest free credit up to the value of £25,000 to eligible customers over the age of 18 on a case by case basis.

Take It Away can't be used to make an instant purchase online, but please contact us and we'll send you the link to the required forms, and we'll then process your order as swiftly as possible.
