Frequently Asked Questions About Pawning Instruments

Yes, many pawn shops buy used instruments as well as provide loans based on them. Make sure to check with the pawn store first to see what they take and if they provide evaluation services.

That can depend on the instrument. Many instruments you might have lying around your home are “student-grade” and likely will not have high value to a pawn broker or the music community. However, it is not uncommon to find a valuable instrument in your home. That being said, for an instrument to be valuable it needs to be undamaged from heat, moisture, and other environmental concerns. Many vintage or antique instruments do have a higher demand, so if you have one in good condition it might be worth getting an evaluation from a pawn broker.

If you are looking to sell a guitar, piano, keyboard, or other instrument you probably want to consider what option will get you your most value. Many instrument sellers do not buy used instruments, This means that many people turn to trying to sell to a friend or a relative, but that isn’t the best way to get the best value. The best way to get a good value for an instrument is to go to someone experienced in buying and selling used instruments. A pawn broker that deals in instruments is a good place to go. 

One common misconception is that you can scrap a brass instrument for good money. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. At a scrap yard you are paid per pound of brass metal. And while that tuba might look big, most of it is hollow to allow air through it. You are often better off going to a pawnbroker and seeing if it would be worth more for resale, assuming it is in good condition.
