Before any appointment, we will ask you to send us by email photos of your instrument. We need good quality visuals, sharp and pretty close up. Some angles are essential to us. On a violin for example, you have to photograph the head, the back, the table and the F-hole. On a bow, no need to photograph the entire instrument, only two shots are needed: the head and the frog. To guide you in making these shots, we have created a video tutorial.

After sending us photos of your instrument, the auctioneer will be able to give you a free idea of the value.
If a visual study is necessary, we will arrange an appointment at the auction house or at your home. In addition to a more precise valuation of your instrument, the auctioneer will be able to advise you on how to put your instrument on sale, according to your needs and the state of the market.
Several times a year we organize free expertises days that are dedicated to musical instruments. We will receive you by appointment, at the auction house and with our experts. You will have the opportunity to interact directly with the finest experts in the field. Do not hesitate to ask us for the next dates!
