Website for selling used violin accesories
Any suggestions for a website where I can sell some violin accessories that I no longer need?
Yes. It's called eBay.
Craigslist, amazon, and there's more.
The Mandolin Cafe has a classified section for "Violin Family" at: https://www.mandolincafe.com/cgi-bin/classifieds/classifieds.cgi
So after testing 30 different rosins you've found Mr. Right and you don't need the others any more? Cool.
accesories are really personal, dont know if people want them used.
I think used accessories need a home, as long as they're in good shape. It's a shame to throw away old, usuable accessories.
Ella mentioned Craigslist and I use that often to sell unwanted sundry items and it is totallly free to advertise on. If you do post your items expect some mass mailed spam as well as scammers trying to contact you.
I wouldn't go to the trouble of trying to sell such small items; instead, I'd donate them to a local school or program, preferably one that works with low-income students.
I was going to say the same thing as Mary Ellen, but she already did. Do it and take the tax deduction for a charitable contribution.
I have known several violinist to sell items on Reverb. It's a site dedicated to the sale of musical instruments and accessories. I personally purchased a like new Viva la Musica Diamond shoulder rest for an excellent price when I was experimenting with shoulder rests. It was nice not to invest full price for an accessory I might not like or work for my needs.
Skip, would you provide the UurL? Mary Ellen's suggestion sounds great, but selling this stuff is equally acceptable. Maybe if the chinrest has bacteria on it, would cleaning it be an option?
Instruments are sold to new players all the time with their existing chinrests, and many players never change them if they fit fine.
Ella Yu, here you go https://reverb.com/ . Lydia's right, also, when you're in a shop trying out various violins, how many chins have been on that chinrest before you picked it up?
