Used Instruments

Here at the Early Music Shop, we have a wide array of used instruments that can fill a need in your ensemble at a price that is much lower than that of a new model. Our inventory changes constantly, so please call with specific requests. Except as noted, all used recorders have been tested, cleaned, revoiced as needed and put into top playing condition. As with new instruments, we are happy to send used instruments out on approval and we encourage you to compare a few options to find the best match for your needs and tastes.
If you have an instrument you would like to place with us for sale on consignment, please give us a call to discuss the specifics.
Note: Only a representative selection of the used instruments we have for sale are listed here - if you don't see what you're looking for, please CALL to inquire. This listing is updated when time allows; instruments listed here may not be available. We regret that we are unable to provide pictures or sound samples. Instrument listings which are greyed out are currently out on approval. Last updated 8/22/2016.

THE BARGAIN BASEMENT

Occasionally we are asked to sell estate instruments, usually older model recorders. Often these were the best instruments available—40+ years ago—but they are not quite up to the standards of recorders being produced today. It isn't cost effective to invest in reconditioning these recorders, so they are being sold AS IS and are priced accordingly. Unless otherwise noted, all instruments have double holes, but do NOT include a case.
