Do you have any advice for those who want to buy a used musical instrument?
There are some advantages to buying a used instrument: mainly the possibility of having a high quality instrument at an affordable price. On the other hand there are some risks to consider, first of all the lack of guarantee. Therefore, when you are about to buy a used instrument, you must keep in mind some basic rules. First of all, it is recommended to inquire about the characteristics of the desired instrument: to do this, just search on the internet to find comments and opinions of other musicians who can highlight all the merits and defects. Posting requests for advice on various music forums is equally important. If you take music lessons ask your teacher for an opinion, surely he will be able to show you the right tool for your skills. As a second step, it is advisable to make sure that the price is fair, checking the value of the instrument comparing prices between various advertisements, thus creating an average quotation. Obviously a price too high and out of the market must dissuade the purchase, but even an extra low price must warn. To have a first basic idea on the conditions of the instrument on sale it is important to have a first direct contact with the seller, initially by e-mail and then by phone, to be able to ask as many questions as possible. If you can, meet with the seller to view and try the instrument. We suggest to be accompanied by a possibly knowledgeable person who is able to evaluate the condition of the instrument either by hearing it play or by playing it himself.
