We've been beavering away behind the scenes to make the Take it away website even better for our visitors!

We know that one of first things people might want to know when they're considering buying a musical instrument with Take it away is how much their monthly repayments would be on their chosen instrument. Well, these people are in luck! We've just introduced a new feature to the site which enables you to do just that.

It's really easy to use. You just select which of the customer categories you fall into, what instrument you want to purchase and the sliding scale will automatically go to our suggested price of a 'starter instrument' of that type. You can then select whether you'd like to repay over 9 or 18 months (only available on goods over 800) and the monthly repayments are automatically calculated. If you want to check out a different price, you can just manually slide the counter to a different price and again, the calculations will be done automatically, so no need to get your calculator out! Head over to our 'How much will it cost?' page to try it out in action.

If you've made a visit to our website from a mobile, ipad or other tablet recently you should have come across our new mobile-enabled site. It's a pared down version of the main site, with all of the essential information you need to find out what Take it away is, how to use it, and of course with the added benefit of being able to search for your nearest participating music shop. If you've got a GPS enabled mobile phone, it will automatically tell you where your closest shop is located - handy for when you're out and about!

What do you think?

We'd love to get your feedback on these recent additions. Drop us a line at with any feedback you might have, as well as any suggestions for other things you'd like to see on the Take it away website!
