Choosing an instrument
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like advice on choosing an
instrument or kit. We would be happy to talk to you about it and can advise you
on the level of technical ability required to play and/or build it, the current
price and availability.
If you have a question about the construction of your kit, need a replacement
part or require help with setting up, tuning and playing the finished
instrument, please call and ask for Jonathan.
It is a common practice that manufacturers and retailers of musical instruments also operate a brokerage system of second hand instruments. For over 30 years the staff of the Renaissance Workshop Company has helped hundreds of times to sell or buy historical instruments, antique or replicas.
We offer a simple and speedily way to meet buyers and sellers: We maintain an updated listing where you can publish (almost for free) your offering or your demand. The listing is mailed to our vast database of interested customers and is reproduced in full on our website.
To offer an instrument for sale simply send us as many details as possible. You determine the price at which it is offered but we can help you to find a realistic worth.
For any thing concerning selling or buying a second-hand instrument, please contact us through this link.
