Do You Have a Professional Level Buffet Clarinet to Sell or Trade?
We would be happy to assist you in finding a buyer or applying its value toward the cost of a new clarinet. Regularly, we have teachers, students, or their parents inquire about used instruments as an option to save some money.
What I Need to Sell Your Clarinet
First, I will need a detailed description of the professional clarinet you'd like to sell. You can email this information to me; pictures are appreciated as well. I will also need the serial number and year it was made. If you know what you want the instrument to sell for, please include that as well; otherwise, we can discuss it together. Once I have received your email, we will discuss if the clarinet you want to sell is a match for any of my clients.
What Kinds of Used Instruments Do I Want to Sell?
I am interested in selling used Bb's, A's, Eb's, and Bass Clarinets. Used Buffet clarinets, that have never cracked, usually sell very quickly. Any clarinet that is cracked will sell for significantly less and take longer to sell.
Professional clarinets are the only type of used instruments I sell. They must be in perfect mechanical condition. The level of their mechanical condition must meet my standards as my customers have come to expect a very high quality level from me. Instruments that are in excellent mechanical condition however, usually sell more quickly and command a higher price.
My expert repair technician will look over the clarinet. If the clarinet requires repair, I will notify you before the work is done. If you choose to go forward with the repair, the cost will be deducted from the selling price once the clarinet is sold.
Two Ways to Trade with Lisa's Clarinet Shop
I offer two ways for you to trade a clarinet through Lisa's Clarinet Shop.
The first is on consignment.
Send me a professional model Bb, A, Eb, or Bass Clarinet you wish to sell and I will work to sell it at the highest possible price. My commission is 20% plus the cost of repair if needed. You are paid by check when the clarinet sells.
The second method is to trade your instrument in toward a new instrument.
I will take any professional model Buffet clarinet directly on trade for a new instrument you purchase through me. The only clarinet I will take on trade is a Buffet. I will accept instruments that have been cracked and been pinned. I also take older instruments, and those with plating problems due to acidic reactions from your skin. My price for your instrument will be based on the highest possible selling price the market will bear, less 20% plus the cost of any repair if needed.
