Repairs & Restoration
Antiquity Music has extensive experience restoring a wide variety of rare and exotic musical instruments. While Antiquity Music typically only repairs and restores instruments that it purchases, we occasionally offer our restoration services for instruments if they are of significant rarity and interest or if they are being offered on consignment. If you have an instrument that you think might fit this description, please feel free to view our Restoration page or our Sell or Trade Your Gear page, or Contact Us directly.
Antiquity Music offers appraisals of instruments for insurance and other purposes. All instruments must be presented to Antiquity Music in person in order to be appraised. Please Contact Us for further details.
Antiquity Music offers consignment services, by which your item may be listed on our website. If you wish to consign your instrument with us, you must have the item transported to us so that it is physically in stock at our location. Please see our Sell or Trade Your Gear page for more information. In addition to any restoration fees, our consignment fees generally are as follows:
- 37%: $1 - $2,000
- 35%: $2,000 - $5,000
- 30%: $5,000 - $10,000
- 25%: $10,000 - $20,000
