  • Keep the instrument for at least 8-months
  • After 8-months you may bring it back to Herter Music Center and we will purchase it back from you.

  • Instruments must be returned in good playing condition with all necessary parts, supplies and current maintenance contract in order for Herter Music Center to complete the buy-back.
