Musical Instruments


PGS Gold & Coin musical instrument buyers have coin shops conveniently located in the Chicagoland area where you can sell your used musical instruments for cash. We buy and appraise all types of new and gently used musical instruments and music equipment. Bring your instruments to your local PGS Gold & Coin musical instrument appraiser when you are ready to sell musical instruments and music equipment for cash. 

There are numerous reasons why instrument appraisals are necessary including donation and estate settlements, Dissolution of Marriage division of property, or repair evaluation. Perhaps your child has moved on from playing the clarinet, flute, or trombone to a different interest or hobby and now you’re left searching for a music instrument buyer for that unwanted, used trumpet they won’t be playing. PGS instrument buyers give free appraisals for music equipment and musical instruments. Find out how much your preowned music equipment is worth and decide when you are ready to sell with a no-risk, no-obligation appraisal.

Free Music Instrument Appraisals

Follow these quick steps for a free evaluation:

1. Lay your items on a table and take some general overview pictures. Look for any markings, hallmarks, or stamps that will help identify the item, take pictures of those also. Using a white background produces the best pictures. Make sure to note and photograph any areas of damage or discoloration.

2. If you know specific details about your items, please include as much information as possible. Example: year, era, model, issue, and any provenance you may have.

3. Send your photos to Be sure to include your complete contact information name, address, mobile number, and email. 

A PGS representative will get back to you as soon as possible.

After the appraisal, PGS Gold & Coin will make an offer to buy your musical instrument. We pay cash for used instruments like that old, dusty guitar, amp amplifier, effect pedal or drum set, trumpet, or trombone -even your piano.
