Tips On Buying Used Music Gear

Mar 16, 2008
Music gear is equipment that helps in music recording and producing. Whether used for personal recording, home recording studio, or in the professional studio. The purpose is the same, but the difference is the technology used, quality and the price.

Recording may consist of recordings related to television, stage shows and many such things. Compromising on quality of instruments can be fatal for business. But then, spending a lot of money on new instruments and equipment may not always be feasible. Therefore, buying used music gear is the best solution.

The advantage of buying second hand or used music gear is that it will be less expensive. But sometimes the problem occurs when the cheaper gear does not prove to be of good quality. It should be taken into account that the purpose of buying used musical equipments is to get inexpensive gear but with acceptable quality.

Therefore, without getting attracted just by price, the equipment should be checked properly. The usability and the dependability should be examined properly to ensure the quality.

Again, when we talk about the quality, it not only refers to the sound but also the strength of the equipment and the material used. Therefore, the examination also includes checking the condition of the material, the finishing, the workmanship and especially the technicalities. These things are important due to the fact that used equipment does not come with quality assurance or with guarantee.

There are many places where used music gear can be bought. There are stores that organize regular auctions. Then, there are online options too, where the choices are more and even the price is comparatively lower compared to the other stores. But the problem of buying from online stores is that there is no option for checking the equipment personally. The details about the music gear is provided in the sites and you will be able to physically check them only when you get the delivery, which is after the payment has already been made.

But there are a few stores that offer a 30 day return policy. That means that the music gear can be returned in 30 days of buying, if the quality or functioning is not satisfactory. This will give the opportunity to check and examine the music gear that is bought and it can even be rejected if any kind of technical problem is found .

Gone are the days of classical hardware studio. The modern software studio require high tech music gear. Therefore, while setting up a modern studio that is faster and of a higher quality, the purchasing process should include some brand new gear. Especially, some things like multi-track recorders, microphones, audio effects; amplifiers and mixers. These things have to be in good condition since they include more technical aspects.

Finally, before making up your mind to buy used music gear, it will be helpful to have good information about the company that will provide the best products. As there are many cases of fraud registered everyday, it is necessary to be cautious to ensure that the company is real and a reputed one.
