Things To Check Before Buying A Second Hand Woodwind Instrument

Most of the time when people go to buy a second hand woodwind instrument, they don’t know what to check for while inspecting the instrument. Here are some things you should check;

  1. The first thing you should do is decide what you really want. Take a few things like your budget, proficiency level, and knowledge into consideration. Make sure you know what you want before you begin your search.
  2. Physical Condition: Look for any signs of damage such as cracks, dents, or corrosion. Check all parts of the instrument including the keys, pads, and joints.
  3. Sound Quality: Test the instrument to make sure it produces a clear and stable tone. Listen for any issues such as leaks or strange noises.
  4. Intonation: Make sure the instrument is in tune and that notes sound accurate and in-pitch.
  5. Mechanics: Check the keys and mechanisms to ensure they move smoothly and respond quickly.
  6. Maintenance: Ask about the instrument’s maintenance history, including when it was last serviced and if any repairs have been made.
  7. Accessories: Make sure the instrument comes with all the necessary accessories such as a mouthpiece, reeds, and case.
  8. Brand & Model: Research the brand and model of the instrument to understand its features and reputation. This can help you determine if it is a good fit for your needs.
  9. Price: Consider the price of the instrument in relation to its condition, brand, and model. Beware of prices that seem too good to be true as they may indicate an issue with the instrument.
