Sell your cello or double bass to Corilon violins


What do I need to know about selling my cello or double bass? Information and practical tips on selling your instrument to Corilon violins.


Selling a cello or double bass is never a simple affair, if only due to the size of these instruments. A proper assessment of a cello’s or double bass’s musical qualities, its possible historic worth and whether it needs to be restored requires experience and expertise beyond the ken of most stringed instrument owners. No matter if it is a mysterious attic find, a family heirloom or a cello or double bass that one has played for years and wishes to replace with a higher-quality one: up until now, anyone wishing to sell one of these large instruments has had to turn to regional luthiers, few of whom are willing to purchase instruments.

Corilon violins now offers you a viable alternative: to complement our online catalogue of fine old stringed instruments, we seek interesting celli and double basses. Should you be interested in offering us a cello or double bass, simply send us a few photographs that show the entire instrument, ideally from all sides, as well as any important details such as damage. Based on the first impression from your photos, we may ask you to bring in r send us the instrument in for closer inspection. There is no need for you to have it repaired or replace missing parts like broken strings beforehand—our workshop would take care of such matters upon purchase.

See this page for more information about commission sales. We prefer that you send your photos by e-mail to: mail@corilon.com.
