It doesn’t take a six-figure salary to afford a quality instrument – you just have to be willing to look beyond factory packaging. While new instruments can cost thousands, shopping comparable used models will save you hundreds.
This leaves more money in your pockets for the things that matter most, such as groceries, rent or a better mic for your gig this weekend.
That’s why Music Go Round is happy to serve the musicians of St. Louis by offering fantastic used gear at great prices.
Save Big When You Buy Used
No one wants to get ripped off. Whether you are a veteran musician looking to upgrade or you are just starting out, getting a great deal is probably nearly as important as the instrument itself.
That’s where the benefits of buying used first emerge; you can often find a fantastic instrument that is just as good — if not better — than a comparable new product. Though some cheaper brands might offer low prices on base-model new instruments, used gear of better quality offers far greater value in the long run.
And since instruments like guitars tend to hold their value fairly well, it is much cheaper to trade in and trade up to better instruments in the future since you don’t have much in the way of depreciation.
Create Your Own Discounts At Music Go Round St. Louis
Say you have been learning to play on a beginner guitar for a year or two and you feel ready to step things up to a more advanced level. With new instruments coming into the store on a daily basis, it won’t take long for you to find the perfect fit at a great price.
Instead of keeping that beginner guitar which will only sit in the closet gathering dust, you can bring it in, have it appraised by our professional staff and apply that value toward your new acoustic!
Not only are you saving hundreds by buying used, but you are discounting the price even further by trading in!
As an added bonus, you are helping the musical community thrive by giving your old instrument a new life – now someone else can learn to play on that beginner guitar as well.
Other Advantages Of Buying Used
Aside from saving a ton of money, buying used has plenty of other advantages. Some of these include:
You often can’t tell the difference — it is sometimes impossible to distinguish the differences when comparing new and used gear of the same model. Why pay more for something that will work the exact same?
Instruments sound better with time — many consider the sound of aged stringed instruments to be superior to contemporary models. Vintage acoustics, electrics and violins often have a more “mature” sound that is difficult to replicate.
At Music Go Round St. Louis, you can trade in your old gear to help drop our already incredible used prices even lower. Don’t think you have to pay an outrageous sum for a high-quality instrument; shop our extensive inventory of fantastic used gear today!
