Upgrade Information

Why upgrade?

  • Student Line Instruments/Beginner Instruments: The student line model is recommended for those beginning on an instrument for the first time. Most music stores lease these less expensive student models. These instruments are made to be relatively inexpensive and relatively durable. They are not necessarily made to play with the best tome quality or to stand up to many years of intense playing. Simply put, they sometimes “wear out” or musicians “grow out” of them as they gain more experience.
  • Intermediate/Professional Model Instruments: These instruments are made with better quality materials and better quality control. In some cases these instruments have more keys or have a bigger bore (to help get a bigger sound), or are made of more expensive metals. Generally, if your child is serious about band, and really enjoys playing their instrument, this is an option that should be considered as it will quickly help your child sound their best.
