Sell your instrument

Musical instruments are not consumables. A good instrument does not lose its value as it is used, but rather its true value is realized through use!
And it is not only beautiful and new instruments that are sought after!
Because we specialize in used musical instruments, we do not give a negative appraisal based on appearance alone, but rather maximize the value of the instrument itself.
We will purchase your treasured instruments responsibly so that they can be handed over to the next owner.

1) "Instruments bought at other stores" are also eligible for a 10% increase in the appraisal value!
Instruments purchased from other excellent stores will have their appraisal value increased by an additional 10%!
