Whether you've recently decided you want to learn to play and are looking for a beginner acoustic guitar or want to rock out in a band with an electric guitar or bass, be sure to look through our selection of pre-owned guitars and basses. Our selection and quality ensure you'll be getting the best.

Used Drums

The drums are a fun instrument. With your setup around you, you need high energy and great rhythm to keep the tempo and the rest of the band playing together. When you're looking at used drums, you may find that it will save you a bit of money. 

Since drum sets are made up of several instruments and other equipment, the cost can add up a little faster than other instruments. Shopping pre-owned can help you save — and when you come in under budget, you can pick up some extras that you may not have been able to get if you had purchased everything brand-new.

Used Keyboards

Keyboards are one of the most versatile instruments out there. If you have a synthesizer, you can program it to have a huge variety of sounds. 

Whether you want to use keyboards in live performances or for recording, it will help bring a number of different tones and sounds from one instrument. Additionally, if you have a child you want to get involved in music, the keyboard is a great pick.
