How it works

  • Arrange a collection or delivery.

Why sell to us?

Environmentally friendly

We recondition and re-use all instruments we purchase. Most instruments join our rental instrument fleet, where they will be loved and played by the young musicians of tomorrow.

By providing reconditioned instruments to students, we reduce the environmental impact of cheap mass-produced instruments flooding the market as throw-away items.

Local business

As a local business in North London, we can visit you in person to immediately assess and purchase your instrument. There is no need to pay to ship your instrument to us and no risk of your instrument being rejected after sending.

While not every instrument we appraise is in the required condition for purchase, we pride ourselves in being open and honest about our assessment process and the price we are prepared to pay.
