we're changing the way musicians get their gear

...you should join us

We provide musicians with on-demand access to borrow the hottest music instruments, gear, and accessories, all via a monthly membership subscription model.

create recurring revenue

Earn recurring, monthly payouts for participating in our partner program. Each month you'll generate extra cash based on how much gear you lend.

improve margins

Stop giving away your margins to traditional retailers. Earn more with monthly partner payouts and pay lower rates than Reverb and Amazon.

turn overstock into cash

You know all that extra stock filling your warehouse? Loaning it via BuyOrBorrow Music can make you way more $ than selling it at a discount. Stop giving away your margins and create recurring cash flow instead.

With the shift to e-commerce, consumers are losing the ability to experiment with products before purchasing. We can put your gear in the hands of thousands of users by bringing the music store experience to the home.

How it works


Sync your inventory with us

This can be as easy as providing a preformatted spreadsheet daily showing your current inventory levels. Alternatively, we also offer consignment or 3PL servicesto hold inventory on your behalf.

begin lending out your products

We’ll immediately make your products available to our extensive member base across the US. If a borrowing request comes in for one of your products, we’ll fulfill it via your inventory.

earn recurring revenue each month

Each month that your product spends in our members’ hands, you’ll earn recurring revenue, ranging from $15 to $59 / month.Your earnings are paid out each calendar month.

Drive sales directly

On average, our members purchase their borrowed gear 30% of the time. If your product sells to one of our members, we simply charge a 5% purchase fee (and 2.9%payment processing fee) and pay out the remaining sale value to you in full.

Damage Protection - What's Covered?

BuyOrBorrow Music offers a Damage Protection Plan that’s available for any gear rental. It protects you from having to pay the entire cost of the item, repair costs, or any other liabilities in the event of unintentional damage to the product. It does not cover theft or loss of the gear.

To see all the nitty gritty legal details of the plan, you can check out what our ultra boring lawyers have to say about it in our Terms of Membership, Rental, and Sale.
