How to Sell Your Instrument

1. First, make your secure payment

  • Send your payment for an ad (€10) by bank transfer using one of these links or the black button below. Selling more recorders? Here are the links for two and three ads. If you want to sell more than three instruments, please contact me and I’ll send you a payment link.
  • Alternatively, you can use the PayPal button below (although I prefer the first option).
Transfer €10

Note: If you’re a Patreon supporter, you can get monthly discounts and even free ads! See below 😉

How many recorders you want 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 publish an article 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 – width 970 px
Figure 2 (right): Wrong photo size proportions – width less than 970 px

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.
