Consignment & Trade-Ins
SELLING YOUR GEAR
In addition to a love of making music, musicians share a love of gear. With so many fun and exciting new toys at our disposal the choices are nearly endless. Unfortunately sometimes accumulating too much gear can be a problem, which is why we work hard to help you sell your unwanted or under utilized gear to make room for cool new stuff.
LET US DO ALL OF THE WORK
Our most popular option, selling on consignment simply means that you bring your product to our store and leave it with us, and we will sell it for you at a mutually agreed upon price. Once sold, we pay you 82% of that price. Consignment items get prominently displayed in our store and featured on our website, Facebook Fan page, and Twitter for maximum exposure. Our experienced staff can also assist you in determining the best selling price for your used equipment as well as recommend any necessary repairs to get your gear in perfect selling condition.
FASTEST WITH A TAX ADVANTAGE
Trading in your product is the fastest and most efficient way to get rid of your unwanted or under utilized gear. Trades are simple. Once you decide what new product you would like, simply bring in your trade-in product. Our staff will evaluate it and decide on a value for your trade which is then deducted from your new product purchase price. All you pay the difference. Fast and easy. While trade-in values are generally lower then what you might hope to sell your gear for privately or on consignment, trading in lowers your "pre-tax" price which in turn lowers the amount of sales tax that you pay. Often, this tax savings makes up for the lower value. Trading in is an option that should always be considered.
