Your Shopping Basket
Today's market forces a lot of selling outlets such as used instrument stores, antique, and pawn shops to severely undercut the value of used items, due to the uncertainty of re-selling them. Don't settle for getting rid of your musical instruments and accessories for less than they are worth!
We want to help you sell your musical instruments and accessories by reaching the customer base that Volkwein's Music has taken over 120 years to establish!
Like with all used products, much of the value will depend upon the items' condition and functionality, as well as the current market for that product. While we may not always be able to purchase your musical instruments and accessories from you at a price that you would be happy with, we do offer a service that many customers take advantage of.
We sell your used musical instruments and accessories on consignment. If you come in to our store, one of our specialists will be happy to take a look at what you have, and help you determine a minimum selling price. We have a team of highly trained technicians who can help you determine the value of what you have. Evaluations are free of charge! We then seek out customers who may be interested, and sell the item for you! We do this online using such outlets as eBay. Sometimes online auctions end up selling items for even more than we anticipate, due to our expansive consumer base and established seller's account boasting a positive feedback rating of 100%! Occasionally if we feel there is a local market for your item we will sell it in-store, instead of online.
We charge 25% commission for online sales of your musical instruments and accessories. Some folks think this fee is high, but what they don't know is that even selling on eBay as an individual, you will end up paying 15%+ to eBay and services like "paypal" in listing and transactional fees. With us, it's as simple as dropping the item off, and receiving a check in the mail once it has sold. There's no photographing, listing, advertising, shipping hassles, etc... for you. We handle all of that! We will gather your information at the time that you drop the musical instrument or accessory off, and will simply mail you a check when your item sells, no hassle to you whatsoever! If you are interested in this service please feel free to stop by at anytime. Take your musical instruments and accessories to the repair counter and someone will be happy to get you started! Oh, and if for some reason we are unable to sell your musical instruments and accessories, you can come by and pick them up at anytime, and you will not be charged a dime... Guaranteed!
