Instrument Rentals

Renting an Instrument from RDG Woodwinds

RDG Woodwinds is proud to offer a variety of high quality oboes, English horns, and clarinets for rent.  Our fleet includes reputable brands and models that professional players, teachers, and aspiring artists know and trust. 

For flexibility, rentals are booked on a monthly or weekly recurring basis. Rent an instrument for as long or as little as you'd like and return it at any time. We don't prorate for early returns. Rental periods include a 5-day return grace period to accommodate shipping transit time frames.

Because our rentals are part of a dedicated rental fleet, we do not offer a rent-to-own option, and our rentals are not available to purchase.

We ship rentals to almost any location in the USA. In-store pickup is also available.

Availability is subject to change without notice. Please contact us using the form below to confirm availability or send an email to
