Hi, Are there any bands out there with an instrument purchase scheme that assists players with the purchase of an instrument of their own. The band I play with in Ireland don't take part in such a scheme and was wondering what the pros and cons are............... I feel it's a win-win situation! A player gets to purchase his/her own instrument of choice initially funded by the band, which remains the property of the band until it's paid for in full and it saves the band money on instruments! Obviously there would have to be some sort of legal document drawn up to ensure that the instrument gets fully paid! Anybody have experience with this?
