How to Sell Your Instrument

1. First, make your secure payment

To pay for an advertisement (€10 per instrument), please click on one of the following buttons (according to the number of instruments you wish to advertise) to transfer your payment via Wise (you get some benefits when you sign up with my link).

Transfer €10 Transfer €20 Transfer €30 Transfer €40 Transfer €50

  • Here are three extra links for the most common €10 ad (you may come across an expired link above because they expire after a single use)
  • If you would like to sell more than five instruments, please contact me and I’ll send you a custom payment link
  • If you’re a Patreon supporter, you can get monthly discounts and even free ads! See below.
  • Alternatively, you can use the PayPal button below (although I prefer the first option).

How many recorders would you like to sell?

2. Info. Please send me all the relevant information about your instrument

You can use this contact form. Please include links to 2–3 photos of the instrument in the largest box at the bottom of the form (current condition of the instrument, links to photos & comments). See more details about the photos in section 3 below.

3. Photos: send me links to at least 3–4 pictures of your instrument

Photos are essential, and I will not post an ad without them: people want to see a recent photo of your instrument! Experience has shown that the more pictures you send, and the better the quality, the faster your instrument will sell.

Important: the required size is 970 pixels for the smallest side of your picture (minimum size would be 970 × ≥970 pixels), otherwise the layout of the homepage will be broken. This is easier if you leave enough space around the instrument. See below:

Figure 1 (left): Correct photo size proportions – 970 px width
Figure 2 (right): Wrong photo size proportions – less than 970 px width

Also important:

  • Please don’t email me your photos. Instead, upload them to Dropbox, Google Drive, or a similar service, and include the download links in your message above.
  • Recommended: Take your photos against a white background, clearly showing the most sensitive parts of the recorder: window, beak, thumb hole, etc. See an example here.

As soon as I have the information and photos, I’ll post them. Usually within 2–3 working days, but please be patient if it takes a little longer: I still have to practice! 😉.

When the recorder is sold, just let me know and I will mark your ad as sold.
