Instrument Rental Overview

River City Music's instrument rental program is the perfect way to introduce yourself or your child to a world of creative expression through music. We offer the lowest rental fees in Vancouver, and a wide variety of instruments to fit your needs or specific playing style. We rent in multiple categories dependent on the condition of the instrument and we offer an optional maintenance coverage option on top of your rent to safeguard against potential damage it may receive through use.

Don’t sign long contracts with other Music Stores! All of our rentals are billed on a month to month basis which allows you the flexibility to return or exchange your rental instrument at any time.
