Flute Rentals


The Flute Center of New York is happy to offer rentals of student flutes and auxiliary flutes.

Please know that we only rent respected name brand instruments. We do not stock inferior quality instruments widely found in many other retail locations.


Student Flute Rentals


Student rentals are $250 + tax for a 6 month term. We offer a special rate for the school year - a rental initiated between August and October will receive a complimentary extension through June 30 of the following year. We do not prorate rental charges for shorter rental periods. The make of the rental flute will depend on our availability, though you will have a choice of a closed-hole model with a curved or straight head joint option for beginning players. Open hole intermediate and handmade professional flutes are not available for rental.

Rentals for orchestras and schools are also available through the Flute Center of New York, and we are happy to waive New York State sales tax (8.875%) if your orchestra or school provides a valid tax-exempt identification number.

Should you decide that you want to purchase the exact flute rented, we offer half of the rental fee as a credit toward your purchase.

Please call us (212) 307-9737 or email us at info@flutecenter.com for availability on any instrument rentals!


Auxiliary Flute Rentals


We also offer rentals on auxiliary instruments such as piccolos, altos, and bass flutes. Any auxiliary instrument priced under $3,000 incurs a rental fee of $250 + tax per month. Any instrument priced over $3,000 incurs a rental fee of $350 + tax per month. We are happy to ship any rental to your school, orchestra, or summer festival as well. Shipping fees will apply.
