Sell Used Brass

One of the problems with trying to sell a pre-owned instrument online today is that there is a lot of chaos on the internet. Auction websites can be good for people that do it all the time, but, for others it can be very time consuming, not to mention all of the little fees that add up quickly. We strive to simplify the process and make it easy, so that you receive a fair price for your instrument. We offer you two options to work directly with us.
