Our regular auctions of musical instruments, equipment and collectable vinyl have developed a keen following both locally and online.
There have been some key highlights as the department has grown in size and reputation, including the sale of a collector's collection of some of the world's rarest vinyl in September 2016, which topped £25,000.
Auctioneer Kev Kendal also recalls the 2014 sale of a limited edition ‘JS Berlin Legend’ Patrick Eggle electric guitar made for the Irish blues and rock legend Rory Gallagher (which sold for £29,500, including buyer’s premium) - it gave the department international recognition and set a saleroom record.
While these items stand out in rarity and value, the auctions always include a large selection of affordable instruments, vinyl and audio equipment.
Expect to see violins, acoustic and electric guitars, accordions, pianos and keyboards alongside less well-known instruments such as phonofiddles. And there's always a buzz around one-off vinyl finds such as the Courtyard Music Group's £1,000 record, and copies of Prog Rock album, England.
Look out also for items of musical memorabilia - a recent example being a strong collection of signed Ozzie Osbourne memorabilia including tour posters, guides, t-shirts, sweat bands and badges. And no music sale is complete without a good selection of speakers, amps, microphones, gramophones and stereo equipment.
