The Arts Council's interest free credit scheme, Take it Away was introduced in 2007 designed to help more people get involved in learning and playing music. We are happy to be offering interest free credit to 18 - 25 year olds in participating branches, and by mail order.
How does it work?
You can use 'Take it Away' to purchase any instrument costing between £100 and £2000 pounds. The payments you make will consist of a 10% initial payment by credit or debit card, followed by nine monthly installments of 10% each. You don't pay any interest, and the total amount you will pay is exactly the same amount you would have paid if you'd made payment up front.
In the Shops
It's extremely easy to apply - all you need to bring with you is your payment card. Once you have chosen your instrument and accompanying accessories, the shop staff will collect a few details from you, and then make a quick phone call to get your credit approval. Once the credit has been approved, you make the 10% down payment, set up your direct debit for the further nine payments, and then go on your merry way with your new instrument!
Subject to status. Terms and conditions apply. Applicants must be 18-25 years old (other finance options may be available to everyone else, please enquire!). McClelland Music Ltd trading as Hobgoblin Music is a licensed credit broker of 'Take it Away' loans.
