Do you have musical instruments and related gear that you’re not using or would like to upgrade?

We have a dedicated team to make the selling and trading of your instruments quick and transparent. And it’s easy too!

Whether it’s one piece or a whole collection of vintage, mint condition, or well-loved gear, we’re prepared to make you a fair offer based on the current market value. We’ve been buying new, used, and vintage gear from all over the U.S. since the 1990s (that’s right, before the internet!), so we’ve got the process down. 


Just fill out the form below to submit your gear and Daniel, Mike, or Dan will be in touch with you very soon!

And when it comes time to ship it, we can help make it easy, safe, and painless! Check out our guide on How to Ship A Guitar!

*For any trade or selling transactions at Chicago Music Exchange, due to the potentially sensitive nature of some of the finish materials used on instruments and the pending weather factor changes, we will typically wait up to 24 hours to open the gear sent to us. Then another 24-48 hours to process the instrument. We appreciate your patience!

If you have additional questions regarding the sale or trade process, or if you would like to get the ball rolling, call, email, fill out our form, or stop by and visit us in the showroom anytime.

We look forward to meeting you!

-The team at the Chicago Music Exchange
