Is SDRANG.com a shop?

Do you have any advice for those who want to buy a used musical instrument?
There are some advantages to buying an 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 warranty. Therefore, when you are about to buy an used instrument, you must keep in mind some basic rules. First of all, it is strongly suggested to ask 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 pros and cons. Posting requests for advice on various music forums is also important. If you take music lessons ask your teacher for an opinion: they will be able to show you the right instrument for your skills. As a second step make sure that the price is fair, comparing prices among different ads. Obviously a price too high and out of the market should discourage the purchase, but even a super low price should make you suspicious. To get a basic idea of 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, inordere to ask as many questions as possible. If you can, meet with the seller to evaluate the instrument.

What should I write in the ad title?

Do not enter web addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers. Do not write words like: very, opportunity, discount, I sell, I try, I offer etc. which take away space for the description.
What should I write in the description?
The “Description” field of the ad can contain free text. Unlike the title, the ad content will have to provide a detailed description of what is being proposed. It is therefore necessary to expose information and technical details concerning the object.

It is not allowed to insert only links to other sites in the body of the ad, they can be inserted only to provide further information following an exhaustive description. The text must only deal with the sale of musical instruments, any other content is not admitted such as reports of scams, opinions or comments on users or ads. All ads that do not comply with these simple rules may be removed by SDRANG.com Staff without notice.
