Selling Your Flute:

J.L. Smith is the perfect place to sell your used flute.

We are extremely proactive in supporting our used instrument sales department with expert marketing, a world-class sales team, top-level instrument service, and our own J.L. Smith flute certification program. We need your flutes to make this happen.

The vast majority of used instruments we offer are J.L. Smith Certified. Certification involves detailed inspection and evaluation, and any necessary service is completed to bring the instrument to its peak level of performance before it is listed for sale. This is the best way to guarantee our customers receive the excellent instruments they are searching for. Certification offers the buyer a solid guarantee of the instrument’s mechanical integrity and level of play. In addition, all J.L. Smith Certified flutes are backed by our free 90-Day Service Program and are eligible for our exclusive J.L. Smith Annual Service Program.

As Is:
We are also able to offer flutes for sale “as is”, without certification. “As is” flutes will be sold with a 15-day money back guarantee, but they will not be eligible for our 90-Day Service Program or our Annual Service Program.

Outright Purchase:
If you have a flute that you’re interested in selling, we want to know about it. Email us regarding the make, model, age, and general condition of the instrument, as well as a description of the features (B foot, open hole, inline/offset G, etc). 

We may ask you to ship the instrument to us for inspection prior to purchase. Please be certain it is clearly labeled, "Attn: Director Of Flute Sales" with your name and contact information attached to the case or case cover. And please only send your instrument if we have requested it.

Feel free to contact us by phone at 800.659.6073 or email at
