The Cadets and Cadets2 Equipment for Rent

As budgets are squeezed and the pressure on band parent associations increase, finding the money for instrument purchases is difficult, very difficult.

And as we search for a way to be part of the solution, Youth Education in the Arts announces a special instrument rental program beginning today, and in place through Nov. 11, 2012.

The Cadets have been fortunate to maintain an excellent relationship with YAMAHA for the past 12 years, and as a result, both The Cadets and Cadets2 are fortunate to use the best marching equipment in the country. On a trial basis, as of now, for this season only, YEA! will offer the following rental deals to any USBands school.

Of note, the prices listed here do NOT include shipping. The prices reflect that a school participating in this arrangement will pick up the equipment at the offices of Youth Education in the Arts in Allentown, Pa., and return the equipment to the same location.

There will be agreements in place to guarantee that the school will pay any repair costs beyond normal wear and tear. But, this is a terrific opportunity to outfit your band with those final few instruments that will make the season memorable for students.

Interested? The following prices will stay intact for any pickup beginning Oct. 6 through Nov. 11. After Oct. 6, we could offer a reduction. Under no circumstance will the equipment be able to be rented past Nov. 11. Both The Cadets and Cadets2 require the equipment for rehearsals the weekend of Nov. 16 through 18.
