Does the idea of buying a used musical instrument make you cringe? Perhaps you are not accustom to purchasing used items. Most of us prefer to buy brand new but in the world of musical instruments this is not always possible. Musical instruments can come with some hefty price tags. I have been a musician for over 25 years and can honestly say that I have purchased more used instruments then new. It is not like shopping at the nearest thrift store or yard sale. Buying older models of top brands often gives you a unique experience. I have heard many musicians say that they just don’t make musical instruments like they use to. I truly believe that the automation of today's manufacturing sector has removed some of the person touches that quality musical instruments once received.I have always appreciated the dents and scratches on my baritone/trombone/flugelhorn. They give it character and show that it has provided hours of musical enjoyment.
