Value of Zentner piccolo

Postby Scobeydoo » Sat Sep 17, 2016 9:58 am

I have a Zentner piccolo that I am planning on selling. It needs some minor repairs (new corking, new pads), but is in great shape otherwise. It is solid wood and very beautiful. i have been looking online at pricing for used Zentner's and have a general idea of what to ask for, but with the repairs needed am unsure of how much to ask. Any suggestions? Thanks!

There are two on eBay for around $1400 in good condition. I guess it would depend upon how much you hope to get from the sale?

Plan on somewhere between $300-$500 for a quality repad and regulation of an intermediate piccolo like the Zentner. Fully repadded and adjusted, flute stores sell them in the $1800-$2000 price range.
