    Word of Caution!

     

    If you are looking to purchase a NEW instrument for your child PLEASE do NOT buy anything for under $500.  Our advice is to check with the band directors before purchasing.  There are inferior brands out there that will not be repairable once they are in need of service.  What looks like a bargain now will cost more in the long run.
