We recommend you to purchase a guzheng for your own enjoyment. However, rentals are available. All rentals are instructor-approved, fine quality instruments:
Requires a $400-$500 security deposit depends on the model of the guzheng. Security deposit is fully refundable if returned in original condition.(Subject to inspection. Structural and cosmetic damage may reduce the deposit you receive. )
$45 - $95 per month depends on the model of guzheng you like. During the first month, rent can be prorated.
You have the option of buying it at the end of the renting agreement.
LENGTH OF RENTAL COMMITMENT
After the first month (which is prorated), the rental contract is month to month. Two months minimum.
For rental, you must arrange your own transportation to transport and return the guzheng. Generally, a SUV with 1 or both backseats down will be suffice for a full size guzheng. (Length of a full size guzheng with case/bag is generally about 170cm or 67 inches in length or less). A travel size guzheng will be about 55 inches of less in length and generally will fit in a sedan. There might be a few 40-inch guzhengs available for rent.
The renter is responsible for the cost of replacing any broken strings while he/she has the instrument, and must replace them with the same quality and same kind of string(gut for gut, nylon for nylon).
INDOOR USE ONLY
*Please be reminded that all rentals are only supposed to be used indoors, not outdoors. Violate these policies might result in the lost of your security deposit.
