Save on the gear you really need when you trade your old rig

Outgrown, outdated or no longer needed, sometimes our gear has served us well, but it's time for it to move on. Look around the rehearsal space, studio or garage and turn the stuff you're not using into the new gear you need. You can get same-day payment if you'd like to just take the money, or trade up to a new piece and save 20% on your purchase on top of your trade credit.

  • No packing or shipping
  • No waiting for an auction to close and no deadbeat bidders
  • Sell or trade when it fits your schedule-no waiting for potential buyers
  • Stay safe from the unknown with a transaction
  • away from your home or rehearsal space
