We Are Scottsdale's Musical Instruments Buyer!

Do you have used instruments, music equipment, DJ equipment, or audio gear you no longer need? Whether you’re a member in an orchestra or had a passing interest in playing guitar in a grunge band, we can help!  Therefore, we know the value of instruments and we’ve got you covered with the highest rate of return.  Because we have earned a stellar reputation of offering the most cash possible in town.  Therefore, making us the #1 Musical Instrument Buyer in Scottsdale!

North Scottsdale Loan & Gold not only pays top dollar for all types of musical instruments, we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, vast knowledge, industry experience, and fast, easy valuations of your belongings.

We understand the needs of our customers and believe that whether you’re trying to pawn a generic guitar or a vintage Martin acoustic worth tens of thousands of dollars, everyone should be treated fairly.


What a Musical Instrument Buyer Looks For


First, get your musical instrument in optimal condition whether it requires a quick cleaning or string change. Gather all packaging/storage containers, accessories, and paperwork whether it is previous appraisals or original receipts.

If your instrument is in poor or fair condition, don’t let that deter you from visiting North Scottsdale Loan & Gold. We buy all types of musical equipment from a wide range of values—even old high school/college band equipment!

Once you’ve dusted off your equipment, bring it in for a free valuation. There’s no appointment required. In nearly all cases, you’ll be made an offer on the spot after we’ve determined the fair market value. This can depend on a number of factors:

  1. Age of instrument (older isn’t always bad—it might be an antique!)
  2. Aesthetic condition
  3. Working condition
  4. Complete or missing parts/sets/accessories
  5. Current store inventory
  6. Supply and demand

Buy, Sell, Pawn, or Trade Your Musical Instrument


If you aren’t ready to sell your cherished musical instrument, but still need access to quick cash, North Scottsdale Loan & Gold can write loans for your audio equipment and music gear. We simply hold your instruments as collateral. We’ve been serving the Valley for years with clients who come from Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and beyond to get top dollar for their sale or trade-in.

Although we are regarded as the top musical instruments buyer in Scottsdale, we also sell music gear and equipment. Whether you’re starting a band and need a new drum set or you’re finally taking up violin lessons after all these years, North Scottsdale Loan & Gold can give you a great deal on instruments. Perhaps you want to upgrade your guitar or add a second (third…or fifth) guitar to your collection. No other retail store will come close to our prices on used music equipment.
