Fall/Winter Rebates at Paige’s Music

Instrument rebates at Paige's Music

Believe it or not the, the winter is coming up fast! To celebrate this gift-giving season, many of the manufacturers Paige’s Music works with are giving generous rebates with the purchase or rental of a new instrument. If you’ve been looking to upgrade your instrument, now is a great time!

If you’ve been looking to upgrade to a professional level instrument, Conn-Selmer (Bach, Conn, Holton, King, Selmer, and etc.) has a $100 mail-in rebate or you can choose a pBone or pTrumpet ($179 value) as your gift! These plastic instruments play rather well considering their all-plastic construction and is available in various colors. The purchase of a Bach instrument and submitted rebate form also enters you in for a VIP trip to the Bach factory in Elkhart, Indiana! More information on the Conn-Selmer rebate can be found here: http://www.conn-selmer.com/en-us/
