The BTS Instrument Loan Scheme 2023 is now open for applications from young members.

Login to the website and go to "Bursaries/Loans" on the main menu.

The BTS possesses six instruments (Conn 88H F/Bb tenor (x2), Rath R400 F/Bb tenor, Yamaha YSL-88GO F/Bb tenor, Conn 62H bass and Voigt J-164N bass) which are available to our members age 25 and under.  Our second Conn 88H instrument has been kindly donated by the Halesworth Arts Festival, Suffolk in fond memory of trombonist Tony Parsons (1938 - 2019), the Yamaha by Peter Moore, Principal Trombone of the LSO and the Voigt J-164 by jürgen Voigt Brass.

The scheme is aimed at any Member of the Society age 25 and under (on 1st Jan 2023) whose current circumstances prevent the purchase of the type of instrument required. The instruments listed are available now and the BTS welcomes applications.

Loans will be on a case-by-case basis, and for no longer than 12 months. Delivery or collection of instruments will be on a case-by-case basis and any carriage costs will be shared between the successful applicant and the BTS.

Potential borrowers are invited to apply for a loan trombone and are required to supply details of their current financial situation. Applications will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence.

We welcome applications for the instruments from 1 July 2023 with a deadline of 31 July.
