Selling your used Gear

We are always in the market and on the look-out for quality used gear. We mainly take in effects pedals, guitars, basses, stringed instruments, and amplifiers. Our offer for your gear is based off of a current market value of industry standards, condition, and current market trends. We take an average of actual sales on items exact or similar to the ones in question that we are able to find online. We will walk through this with you and it must be done in person at the store for final sale. Unfortunately not all instruments keep their value once they are considered USED, but we believe the methods we use in finding the value are fair and up-to-date and allow great opportunity for both parties. Once we have establised a value we will make an offer up to 65% of the value. This is an example of where we find our pricing estimates. Reverb Price Guide

Trades


We offer and encourage trade-ups towards in-store purchases. As stated before our offer of value is based off of industry standards, condition, and current market trends. We take an average "market value" of actual sales on items exact or similar to the ones in question. Once agreed upon we establish a store credit for our customer towards the sale. 

Consignment Sales


To walk-in customers and artisans alike we offer opportunity for consignment sales. Most times we are able to take in instruments on consignment if we feel it would be beneficial for both parties. We do reserve the right to turn down consignment depending on our inventory levels or instrument in question.

Customer Consignment:

For walk-in customers we offer a 90 day "Hang Period" while asking 20% of the final sale. We will make sure your instrument is in playing shape and appealing to our customers. This is another option outside of selling us your gear. For more details please Contact Us, or come in a see us.

Artisan Consignment:

For Luthier and Artisans we offer a lower consignment rate of 10%. At Indy String Theory we believe you should be rewarded if your creation sells in our store. We want to help in the ways that we can. Offering a new platform for others to see your work, and hopefully get it out into the world. We also sell and ship all over the U.S. with your permission we will do the same for you. For more details please Contact Us, or come visit us in store.
