Selling Your Musical Instruments

Learning to play a musical instrument can be a wonderful thing, but it isn’t for everybody. You may have taken music lessons during school for a class and thought you would pick it up again. Sadly, these instruments are left in the corner of a storage room or a basement collecting dust.

drumsThere is nothing wrong with deciding you want to give up playing an instrument. However, that doesn’t mean you should just let your instruments collect dust. There are a lot of things you can do with them, and one of them could even get you some extra cash if you need it. If you have an instrument that you will probably never play again, why not bring it down to the Eureka Trading Company?

The Benefits of a Pawn Shop

You may not be familiar with pawnshops, but a pawn shop is a business that provides cash loans for any item of value. This typically includes jewelry, electronics, appliances, or anything else of value that can be resold. Naturally, this includes musical instruments. You have a period where you can get your pawned items back if you pay back the loan in full. If you don’t, the item can be sold by the shop.

What this means is that if you have a musical instrument lying around, you can get some extra cash for something they most likely will never use again. Since you probably won’t be making any attempts to get back your instrument, it has the chance to be purchased by someone who will use it. Or maybe you are the person looking for a new-to-you instrument? Either way, choosing a pawn shop like the Eureka Trading Company is a good place to start.


There aren’t a lot of downsides to pawning an instrument you won’t be using, but you should shop around to make sure you get the best price. The amount of money you can get will depend on the condition of your instrument and how likely it is to sell at a given shop, so different shops will make different offers. Take a look around and make sure that you will be paid what your instrument is worth. We would love the chance to see your instrument and offer you a fair value so that it can find a new home.
