With the exception of percussionists, harpists and players of some woodwind instruments, members are required to provide their own instruments. Cello and bass players must always use their own stoppers, or boards provided by QYO. Under no circumstances may end-pins be placed directly on the polished hardwood floors or dance mats.   QYO has some double basses and woodwind instruments available for hire.  Percussionists must provide their own sticks and mallets, but QYO provides a full range of percussion instruments.
