To inquire about renting the RFA Bass or Alto Flute, please read this agreement over and fill out the form at the bottom. If you have any questions about the rental process afterwards, contact Caitlin Phillips: firstname.lastname@example.org
The RFA’s Jupiter Bass Flute and Pearl Alto Flute are both available for rental by current RFA members under the following terms:
Who may rent the flute: Any current member of RFA is eligible to rent the flute. If the renter is under age 18, a parent or guardian must sign the rental agreement and take responsibility for the flute. RFA Teachers/Choir Directors may rent the flute for their students/choir members. The students/choir members who will be playing the flute must be current RFA members and their names must be registered with RFA. Students/choir members are not allowed to take the bass flute home without checking it out through RFA. The person renting the flute is ultimately responsible for returning the flute in the condition it was received. RFA reserves the right to refuse rental.
Priorities of use: The priority of use of the bass flute will be in the following order: 1. RFA flute choir/ensembles 2. Adult individual or group 3. High school or college player
The flute is available for rental on a first come, first served basis unless reserved for use by the RFA Flute Choir or another RFA ensemble, or unless currently rented or reserved by another renter.
Deposits and rental fees: A $100.00 deposit is required of each renter at the time the bass flute is rented. The deposit will be returned in full upon return of the flute if the flute has not been damaged. The rental fee is $1.00 per day, which is payable in advance.
Rental period: The bass flute may be rented for a two-week period, depending on availability (to be determined by the RFA Flute Choir Director, Alexandra Barbato). It may be renewed for a one-week period in person or by phone if no one else has reserved it, again, depending on availability.
There will be a $10.00 per day late fee if the flute is not returned at the agreed-upon time. RFA reserves the right to use the deposit to cover any late fees.
Renter’s responsibilities: The renter is responsible for all damage to the flute, case, and accessories. “Damage” is everything beyond normal wear and tear, and includes bent keys, springs or rods, bent tenons, pads torn by careless cleaning, major leaks, and major scratches. Any damages to the flute will be repaired by RFA and repair costs deducted from the deposit. The renter will be responsible for any costs not covered by the deposit. The renter must contact RFA immediately should anything (damage, theft, mechanical issues) occur while the flute is in their possession.
I have read the terms of rental and agree with the stated condition of the flute and have discussed availability of the flute in accordance with Alexandra Barbato, RFA Flute Choir Director.
