Finance options with Keysound
Take It Away Scheme
Keysound are delighted to offer the Arts Council funded 'Take it away' scheme. You can split the cost of any qualifying instrument into 10 equal monthly payments without having to pay any interest charges.
The aims of the scheme are:
To increase access to owning musical instruments for children and young people To encourage participation in music making across a wide cross section of society To support children and young people to develop their involvement and interest in music during and post-education To engage and work with a network of specialist musical instrument retailers across the country who provide a range of support services to customers including information and access to tuition and opportunities for developing musicians
To be eligible to apply for a Take it away loan, customers must be:
an individual over 18 buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18
OR an individual aged 18-25 years and applying in their own right All applicants are subject to a credit check and must also:
Be a permanent UK resident Be working at least 16 hours per week Hold a bank or building society account capable of handling direct debit payments Applicants using the scheme to buy an instrument for an ‘under 18’ will be required to complete a customer declaration confirming that the recipient of the instrument is a child.
Unfortunately we are not able to support applicants aged 26 or over who are not using the scheme to purchase a musical instrument for an under 18. However, please ask your local retailer about alternative finance options that are available from V12 and can help you spread the cost of buying a musical instrument.
How does it work?
You can use Take it away to borrow between £100 and £2,000 towards the costs of your chosen instrument, and you can also include music stands, sheet music and other accessories within the loan. You will need to pay a minimum 10% of the loan amount at the point of sale by debit or credit card (or cash/cheque with proof of identity). The rest is then paid back over 9 months (for goods of £100 - £2,000) in equal installments by direct debit. There is no administrative charge or handling fee when you take out the loan, so you will never be paying more for your purchase than the ticket price Take it away can be used to finance an instrument that costs upto £4,000, however, the amount lent cannot be more than £2,000.
Example 1, a customer buys a piano for £3,500, the deposit has to be £1,500 leaving £2,000. Then the Take It Away can be Used to finance the remaining £2,000, where the repayments will be £222.22 per month for 9 months.
Example 2 a customer would like to purchase an instrument of £1,200 the minimum deposit required is 10% of the total purchase, in this case £120 followed by 9 monthly repayments of £120.
Please note that multiple Take it away loans cannot be used to finance the same instrument. Finance is subject to status, written details on request.
