Step-Up Appointment Request
If you are interested in renting or purchasing a step-up instrument, make an appointment at Elefante Music to try instruments and consult with our experts.
What is a step-up instrument?
A step-up is an upgrade from an entry-level instrument. Step-up instruments are made with better materials, added features, and more attention to detail. Step-up instruments produce a better sound and last longer than a student instrument. A step-up instrument better enables a student to reach his or her potential. A better quality instrument will give the response needed to allow a student to play at a higher level.
Can I try out the instruments?
Yes, we recommend it. Step-up instruments are a bit like trying on clothes. You want to make sure you like it before you take it home. Make an appointment with us to come in and “try on” a few instruments!
