I am thinking to sell my bronze alto bauhaus walstein. Wonder how much i should sell it for?
To be honest I can't tell you how much your sax is worth any more than I can work out how much mine are worth, but off the top of my head here are some of the things that you might want to detail that would help others advise you on price:
- Which version is it?
- How old is?
- What condition is it in?
- Has it been regularly serviced?
- Does it need servicing?
- Any extras being thrown in with it?
The key to selling well is to use eBay, have some good photos and a very well written advert, with good written English. Be honest and clear, and point out what the current new price of the sax is. If there is a level below which you don't want to sell, set a reserve.
If you do get £200 for it, it means the sax has only cost you £50 a year. A quid a week, which is pretty good value.
One of the members is advising a friend on what alto sax to get, below £450. He has been recommended to try a BW alto, so may be worth sending him a PM in case he is interested in yours - he is called "we'll meet again" or similar - in a thread in "Support & Suggestions".
