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. Updated 06/14/2014.

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.

• Koch soprano, three pieces, rosewood, single holes. Sweet but quiet tone, pitched about a=442 - $50

• Anonymous school soprano, two pieces, pearwood, single holes. Soft, quiet tone, but plays two full octaves. Considerable wear on mouthpiece - $50

• Küng school soprano, two pieces, pearwood, single holes. Sweet, clear sound, especially in the upper range.
Considerable wear on mouthpiece - $75

• Dolmetsch soprano #13372, rosewood. Full, strong sound, very little visible wear - $100

• Dolmetsch alto #9751, rosewood. Soft from f' - c'', but strong and clear on up to f''. Considerable visible wear of varnished finish; white plastic thumb-rest screwed on - $50
