All instruments are subject to availability.

Instruments for Music Education Hub projects will be given priority; all others are on a first come first served basis.

The hirer must organise to collect the instruments, at their own expense, from the SoundStorm instrument store at Absolute Music, Knighton Heath Estate, 855 Ringwood Road, Bournemouth, BH11 8NE (by appointment only). At the end of the hire period, the hirer must similarly organise to return the hired instruments, at their own expense, to the SoundStorm instrument store (by appointment only).

Instruments are hired out on termly basis or for an academic year. If instruments are requested once the term (or year) has begun the hire will not run over into the next term (or year). No pro-rata is offered for instruments hired midway through a term (or year).

In order to access free or subsidised instrument hire for individuals, SoundStorm will need evidence from schools of free school meal status and or evidence of parental unemployment.
