Appraisal Services


Sometimes people are sneaky and pretend to want to sell you something when in reality they want a free appraisal before putting the item up for auction.  They are just asking  for bad karma - I’ve seen it happen.


If you have a mute or musical instrument that I want to buy, I will make you an fair market offer. I have a reputation to maintain and therefore (besides the karma thing) I have plenty of motivation not to cheat you.


However, if I am not interested in your mute or musical instrument and it is within my area of expertise, I will provide a written evaluation/appraisal for a fee of $25 for mutes and 50.00 for musical instruments, to be paid via PayPal.  Please E-MAIL me first with information about your instrument, so we can be sure the item falls within my expertise. 

I can provide appraisals via email as a PDF document, or as hard copy via US Mail.


PayPal payment fees must be funded from a bank account ( at present I cannot accept PayPal funded from a credit card).  PayPal payment would be to the email address:
