What is a Step-up Instrument?

The difference between beginner and step-up instruments is the quality of materials, design, construction, and craftsmanship.

The beginner instruments are manufactured with durability in mind and less focus on the overall tone and playability. Young students are more likely to drop their instruments and put them together incorrectly. Young beginners just challenge the instrument physically in ways an older, advanced student is less likely to.

With a step-up instrument, the focus is on the sound and the overall flexibility when playing. This is achieved by better materials, and a design focused for a great sound. A step-up instrument is like any tool. The better the tool the better the product.

What step-up instrument should you choose?

If you have a student who is excelling, the best instrument the family budget can manage will again produce the best final product.

Buy Local Discount
(They don’t do this on the internet)
Many of our instruments qualify for a Buy Local Discount on cash purchases.  The discount will vary by instrument and brand and may range from $50 to $1,000, with most instruments qualifying for an average $200 Buy Local Discount on cash purchases (and major credit card purchases). A Star City Music Exclusive!

Trade-ins Welcome!
(They don’t do this on the internet)
Have an old instrument or a beginner instrument? Great. Use it for a minimum trade-in allowance of $300 on many step-up, intermediate & professional instrument purchases.

Buy-back Guarantee
(They don’t do this on the internet)
This is another Star City Music Exclusive!  Sometimes things don’t go as planned… you may return the instrument any time before 18 months of ownership for a full refund minus the pre-determined rental fee at the time of the sale. The rental fee is calculated by taking the total sale price and dividing it by 36.  There is a 6-month minimum fee.  If you return the instrument after 18 months, we will guarantee your refund amount will never be less than half of the instrument’s total purchase price — up to (but not after) 36 months of ownership. Instruments with normal wear and tear are accepted for refund at our discretion.
