Are you looking to sell your instrument?

We have a large turnover of fine instruments and bows and if you are thinking of selling then we can help you! I am always looking to buy and pay cash for these instruments and bows, however if that is not possible then I am happy to sell on consignment for between 10% and 20% commission. At a price to make us both happy.

Remember auction houses take up to 50% of the final sale price! I can get you more. We can also usually set up your instrument in house to optimise its playing qualities …. I really do try to sell only things that “work”! As always we love Italian instruments but, hey, we love French and English ones too!

This is a list of makers that I really like, however it is by no means complete!
