Studying an instrument for mere personal enrichment or with hopes of an orchestral or solo career is an expensive undertaking. At some point, private lessons and participation in public performances require more than just loan instruments from a school. However, adult flutes can run up to $2,500.
What’s the solution? Buy musical instruments in Wichita, KS, from a pawn shop. Here’s a rundown of what’s available.
Brand Spanking New & Pre-Owned
Pawnshops often come by brand new and pre-owned musical instruments. Both can be purchased at discount prices, and each have their own unique benefits. Brand new instruments offer the player an opportunity to grow into and adapt the instrument.
Pre-owned instruments offer the same opportunities for adaptation, except they have price tags that are lower than market value. If taken care of properly, new and pre-owned instruments function exquisitely for however long they’re in use, at which time the player can repair the instrument or resell it for a very competitive price.
Availability of new and pre-owned instruments at pawnshops varies between seasons, sometimes between weeks. It’s a good idea to check in frequently to see what’s selling or perhaps even about to hit the sales floor.
Acoustic and electric strings tend to dominate inventory, but it’s not uncommon to encounter percussion, brass, woodwinds and concert-quality keyboards. Depending on the shop, one can even ask the staff to call or text them when a typical instrument like the accordion comes across their counter.
To get fair, excellent prices, buy musical instruments in Wichita, KS from Money Town Pawn Shop, the local family-owned pawnshop that’s been making generous, honest deals since 1966.
