Consignments and Purchases of Used
We do purchase some used flutes
outright as well as accept flutes on consignment. We consider high-quality
pre-owned artist flutes such as: Louis Lot, Rive, Godfroy, Bonneville, Brannen,
Powell, Haynes, et al. Our customers are interested in professional models such
as the handmade with soldered toneholes with open holes and commercial/regular
flutes with drawn toneholes and plateau cups. We do seek gold and gold/silver
flutes as well.
Most of our flutes do sell within
6 months unlike many of our competitors who have the same flutes listed for
years! Alan and David know their customer base well and have an international
wait-list for certain flutes.
We retail your instruments for the
agreed upon retail price on our website and social media. We make our best
recommendation for a realistic selling price upon physical examination based on
playability, condition, and rarity.
We do need to have possession of
your instruments for a minimum of 6 months (unless it sells sooner).
If you are interested in a consignment or sale please contact us directly with a complete description of your flute or piccolo including brand, model, serial number as well as photos including the engraving, embouchure, and condition of the pads. If you do not know the model or material we can determine it for you. Once we review the photos we will send you the complete Consignment Terms Agreement (containing commission rates and shipping information) for your review.
