How do I sell a musical instrument?A small guidebook for used instruments
Music is a beautiful hobby and not only playing itself is fun, but also the search for a good musical instrument. But if you buy a new, better instrument, you might want to give less good instruments. But also other reasons, for example financial problems or simply the task of the hobby, lead to a question: How and where do I sell my music instrument used without great value loss? How do I know the realistic market price? How do I get in contact with a reliable and serious buyer?
Basics for the sale of musical instruments
Before you actively use your instruments, you should learn some things. It is important to be able to assess the value of musical instruments.
- How marketable is the used instrument? Is it generally popular or rather a niche product? Is it mass merchandise or a collector's item?
- Who are the interested parties for the instrument? Is it suitable for children, beginners, hobby players or professional musicians?
- How simple is the process of selling? Simply put, keyboards or drums are difficult to transport, wind instruments (such as a trumpet), plucked instruments (guitar) and strings (violin, cello, etc) are usually easier to move - except perhaps a double bass. This is important because many musicians want to test an instrument before buying it.
