FAQ... HOW MUCH IS MY INSTRUMENT WORTH? Without actually seeing the instrument it is very difficult to place a value on it. A great deal of the value is determined by what condition the instrument is in. Values also differ greatly from region to region. Purchasing from, or selling to an individual is much different than purchasing from or selling to a dealer. Just like anything else... it's worth what ever someone is willing to pay for it. If you search completed items on eBay you can usually get a pretty good idea of the value. If you wish to sell your instrument, you may consider placing it on eBay with a relatively low starting price and no reserve price. With good pictures and a good description it will generally bid up to what it's worth. You may also consider donating it .....

I can identify specific instruments in a piece of music, or in a video. I can provide information on how an instrument is used and the history behind it. This includes a large variety of instruments from all over the world. Asian instruments are my strong area, but I have a wide variety of knowledge on instruments in many other countries.

Please note that my specialty in this section does NOT include piano or organ. Please, NO QUESTIONS REGARDING: serial numbers, appraisals, pricing, value or restorations. Thank you! Otherwise, I answer a variety of questions about "other" musical instruments, particularly of the stringed or percussive variety. I have multiple music degrees and years of experience in the field. When asking your question: 1. Please be clear in your message. 2. Provide actual question(s). 3. Please keep it short and concise. 4. Save my one-question-per-day for someone else if you can find the answer on your own. And finally, please, again, *no* questions regarding: serial numbers, appraisals, pricing, value, restorations, or when a particular instrument or device was made. Thank you!!!
