If you’ve ever felt skeptical when a musical instrument retailer touts attractive pricing by calling something a “demo,” a “B-stock item,” or something similar, then you’d certainly be forgiven. Far too frequently, musicians end up overpaying for used instruments, receiving items with dings, damages, or other detritus that don’t match what they’ve been told to expect, whether the discrepancy is in the price or the quality. Fortunately, you can rest assured that Sweetwater catalogs usage and wear on every item with exacting precision. For example, guitars can be viewed on the basis of individual serial numbers, receiving special designations for photos to illustrate any possible wear. Everything from amps, speakers, and commercial audio to synthesizers, recording consoles, band and orchestra instruments, and virtually anything else we carry can be sold as a demo item. But what really makes a demo item here at Sweetwater? Join Mitch Gallagher to learn more about the care and consideration we practice in guaranteeing the best possible prices for all non-new items!
