About Consignment

HornTrader can sell your horn!

There is no up-front cost and you only pay a small percentage of FINAL SALE PRICE after the horn is sold.  The HornTrader is known world wide for quality horns and straight forward descriptions of the instruments in the HornTrader’s inventory.  Steve Dillard (AKA The HornTrader) has been doing this a LONG time (over two decades)!   Not only can he handle the many problems of shipping and money exchanges world wide, he is also a Performer/Teacher with an extensive resume.  The fact that Steve can play and perform the repertoire of the modern day trumpeter with his YouTube video demos is a MAJOR selling tool! 

The HornTrader offers a FLAT Commission of 20% for repeat customers, clients with multiple horns, and horns selling over $3500, or 25% for first time customers.

We have a physical address where people come the world over to audition instruments. If you send your horn to me I will post a YouTube video of me playing your instrument and and also display it on the HornTrader Facebook site at no extra charge.It is much faster / easier to sell a trumpet if it is here in the shop.  If you need the horn in the interim.  We can turn it around back to you very quickly at a nominal cost.
