Brass and Woodwind Auctions

We hold three musical instrument auctions each year and accept entries Monday to Friday 9am-5pm and selected Saturday mornings by appointment.

Our auctions feature a varied selection of instruments by makers such as Hawkes & Co, Boosey & Hawkes, Yamaha, Vincent Bach, Besson, Conn-Selmer, Martin and Henri Selmer, Paris.

We sell to collectors, professional players and dealers across the globe. 

Our specialists offer free, personal and friendly pre-sale valuation advice, either at our offices, by email or by arranging a home visit. For higher value collections we travel throughout the UK.

Single objects through to whole collections welcome.

We also value items for probate and insurance

Auction is always the best way to realise the true value of your possessions. All of our auctions offer live online bidding which, together with our extensive worldwide database of collectors, dealers and enthusiasts, ensures that your items have every opportunity to obtain the best possible price. We act as your agent at all times and are here to maximise your return, for which we take a fixed percentage commission.

Please be wary of firms that recommend that you don't sell at auction, but instead, steer you towards selling privately, for a fixed price, to their 'awaiting buyers/collector's'.  They themselves are often the ones actually buying the items from you, at a less than generous price, to sell on for a large profit.
