Sarah: Today an instrument, tomorrow my soul.

So, I was really going to try hard to make my entry amusing, since my last was an unentertaining account of my fear of getting old. Alas, I'm again demonstrably unfunny. I was reading Lisa's old entry about her ebay items, and I remembered that I need to sell my old viola. My parents bought it for me when I was in junior high, and I played on it for several years. It's a surprisingly good instrument, and they said that, if I sold it, I could put whatever money I made towards my debt to them. This is a really good opportunity for me! And it's a great opportunity for whoever would buy the viola. I loved this instrument, and it's perfect for a student. It's been recently tuned up, so it's as good as new. I'm considering putting it on ebay, but I'm a little afraid. Also, I'd want it to be bid on, but don't want to lose money. The instrument is worth $3000. Any offers or suggestions on how to sell?

I wouldn't sell it on Ebay. I sold my old flute online, on some flute website. I would search around for like the national viola association website or something. Also, I would get the viola appraised at a music store to find out what it is really worth now (unless you have already done that). Blah, boring, blah.

You could try this: http://www.musiciansbuyline.com/violas.html but I think you have to pay $15.00 for the listing.

Ok, I sold my flute on the flute version of this site: http://www.usedviolins.com/. It's free, so that's a bonus. It's mostly violins, but there are a few cellos and violas listed.
