✓ Beginner Special - First Month Free!

Just pay for your accessories and your monthly payments won't start for 30-45 days!

At Midbell, we work very close with each band director in Siouxland to ensure we provide the right instrument, book, and necessary care accessories custom tailored to each individual school. Parents rent with confidence and peace of mind knowing Ray's Midbell Music partners with their individual schools and educators to provide exactly what your band director prefers for his or her program. 

Here's how our rental-purchase plan works: Rent month-by-month, return anytime, or keep and 100% of rent applies to purchase. Repairs are included in the monthly payment, and we allow FREE transfers to a different instrument. Sign-up is easy and we'll be the most convenient back-to-school purchase you make this year!, in-store, and at your school, we make it quick and easy to start band.


Our plan is a month-by-month rental-purchase plan. We have low monthly payments to fit any budget. New and Pre-Owned, we have options for every family. Every instrument is educator approved and guaranteed to be in excellent playing condition. After choosing the instrument that fits your budget, you simply rent month-by-month with the option to return the instrument anytime with no further obligation. You rent until you return or until you own the instrument. 

✓ Beginner Special... First Month Free!

It's never been easier or more affordable to try band with our Rental-Purchase plan.

✓ 0% Interest...100% of rent applies to purchase 

We make it super easy and simple to acquire ownership of your instrument…100% of rent applies to purchase!  That’s right, our plan is 0% interest, so if your child stays with band (and we hope he/she does!), simply stay on the plan and you will own the instrument.  Just keep renting month-by-month and 100% of rent applies to purchase.  We give the best of both worlds on our plan.  You are never required to keep the instrument, but if you continue on the plan, ownership is usually acquired within 17-36 months for most instruments.  Once ownership is acquired, payments stop and the instrument belongs to your family.  Ask for details or rent online now.

Maintenance & Replacement 

Included in the monthly payment is our comprehensive M&R Plan.  You can rest easy because all repairs are covered under this plan, including normal wear AND accidental damage. We have the best repair shop in the upper Midwest!  We employ 6 full time professional experienced Band Instrument Repair Technicians.  All of our technicians have received a degree in Band Instrument Repair Technology and earned their spot in our top-notch repair facility.  If your instrument requires service, we make it easy.  One of our professional Educational Service Reps will pick-up the instrument at your school and bring it to our shop.  We will professionally service the instrument, and deliver back to the school, all at no additional charge.   Or you are welcome to drop-off or pick-up in our store (click for directions) This is all part of our M&R plan!   

Quality, Educator Approved Instruments

Quality is a word that gets thrown around a lot in today’s world.  When it comes to musical instruments, quality is absolutely imperative to your child’s success.  Beginning on an inferior brand or an old instrument in need of extensive repairs can be very detrimental to the child’s band experience.  At Ray’s Midbell Music, every instrument is name-brand (like Yamaha®, Conn®, and Jupiter® to name a few.)   

✓ FREE Transfers

Sometimes students begin on an instrument that isn’t physically suited to him/her.  Sometimes students simply don’t like playing their initial choice and wish to switch.  We recommend checking with your band director before making this decision.  Once the decision has been made to switch instruments, it’s as easy as a phone call!  Just let us know and we’ll apply up to a year of rent toward an instrument of equal or greater value. We can even deliver the new instrument to your school and pick up your current instrument. We make it simple, easy, and FREE…just give us a ring.


We'll fill your order and deliver to your school's band meeting or during our next regular service call from our Educational Service Rep for your school. We visit most Siouxland schools weekly! 


Stop in or call 800.798.1000. One of our experienced music professionals will set you up in person with the best instrument for your budget. View our hours.


At many schools, we come to you! Ask about the band rental night coming up at your school during back-to-school time. Our experienced professionals will be at the meeting providing the convenient opportunity and personal interaction to secure an instrument for your child. Can't make the meeting? No problem. Beat the rush and call or rent online now. We'll deliver your instrument to the beginner meeting.
