Instrument Consignment Program

Consolidated Music of Barrington takes in and sells instruments on consignment.

Bring us your guitars, basses, amps, drums, keyboards and other musical instruments and we will do all the work to sell them for you. 

We make it simple and easy for you to turn all your musical equipment into cash.

When you bring in your gear, the Consolidated Music staff will write up a receipt, perform a thorough inspection and evaluate its condition. We will then determine a selling price based on current market trends and book value, as well as prep the gear or instruments for sale.

When your instrument sells, we take a commission. The typical commission on an in-store sale is 15%-20%. Online sales are the standard commission plus 6% in bank card fees and online commission.

We have several ways we advertise and sell our consignments, both in store and online. Options will be discussed.

Please note: In order to provide the best possible instruments for our customers and students, as well as, to maintain our reputation, we will typically only consign instruments valued at $99 and up. In general, this is a guideline and not a rule, there are instances where we consign cool and quirky instruments under $99. We reserve the right to turn down consignments, please do not be offended.
