Pawning musical instruments can be an easy way to get a little extra cash. If you are a serious musician, you likely have a few backup models that you don’t regularly play, so you can afford to be without them for a few months while you pawn them. If you are just a hobbyist, you can put your playing on the back burner for a bit while you raise the funds you need.

While you can pawn all kinds of musical instruments in Arizona, the amount you get will vary by pawn shop and by the type and condition of the instrument. Here are a few things to consider when pawning musical instruments to ensure that you get top dollar:

Evaluate the Condition

You don’t have to be an appraiser to evaluate the condition of your instrument. After playing it, you know what kind of condition it’s in. You know if the keys on your clarinet are loose or the neck on your guitar is feeling weak. You know if there’s rust around the screws on your saxophone or tarnishing on the body of your flute.

Be honest in evaluating the condition of your instrument. While flaws won’t be an impediment to pawning it, they can bring down the amount you will get for it.

Determine the Market Value

Several guidebooks are available that can help you determine the value of your instrument. You can also look on secondary market places like Craig’s list or eBay to see what the going rate is for the type and brand of instrument you own. You can get a range that will help you know if you are getting a good offer when you take your instrument to a pawn shop. You may be able to negotiate a bit for more if it’s appropriate, or you can walk away and get a better offer somewhere else.

Just make sure you are taking into account the age and condition of your instrument when determining its market value.

Get it Ready for Pawning

Your musical instrument needs to be in good shape if you want to get top dollar for it on a pawn loan. Take the time to get it ready before you bring it in to the pawn shop. Wipe it down for dust, or polish it to remove finger prints. Make sure it is in tune. Make sure the case is clean, and all the accessories are together with it. The more presentable it is, the more you are likely to get.
