You are here because your child’s percussion instructor has asked you to obtain a practice marimba but you don’t know where to start.
I understand your situation as I was there a few years ago when my son, Carson, was accepted into the percussion class. I was a bit surprised to find out I needed to obtain a practice marimba.
I learned my options were to purchase a new marimba at $1900 or rent one for about $65/mo. I also needed to drive two hours round trip, stand in line, fill out a long contract and lug a huge marimba home then haul it back again when we were done with it.
I knew there had to be a better option so we launched DFWMarimbas.com to provide the least expensive and most convenient option for marimba rentals. We rent practice marimbas for $35/mo with just a one-minute online signup and then we deliver the marimba to your home (and pick it up) for free.
How do we do it?
- We purchase used marimbas then we clean and repair them. We have less invested in each marimba so we can rent them for less.
- We don’t have much overhead as we run this business part-time from our home with no employees, no rent, etc..
- We utilize the latest off-the-shelf secure web technologies for recurring billing to reduce the manual work required.
- This isn’t a full-time business and doesn’t require a full-time salary. Therefore, I pass those savings on to parents.
