What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a French made 1950 Henri Selmer Super Balanced Action alto saxophone. At auction, these tend to sell for between $5,000 and $15,000. A model from 1950 in good condition will go for the higher end of that range. The Fair Market Value of this instrument is between $10,000 and $15,000.

The FMV estimate is only for the saxophone, not for the other instrument. Do you have more information about the clarinet-- brand, age, condition?

Thank you very much. I do not have any additional information about the clarinet.

If I wanted to sell this item through Mearto, what would be my next steps?

Hi Paul,

The item is automatically listed on our marketplace if you clicked 'looking to sell' when submitting the appraisal. From my end, I believe you did since I see the box for 'suggested asking price.' You can see more details about the marketplace terms at https://mearto.com/consign.

Basically, if customers click ‘looking to sell’ and the item is appraised at over $50 and under $4999, this is how it works: The item is on the marketplace for 30 days. If a dealer is interested, they will contact you via email. At that point, it is up to you to accept their offer or not, or negotiate a price. You should be able to edit my ‘suggested asking price’ on your end if you wish.

The listing itself is free for you. If there is a sales transaction, we take 7%. If the item sells, you are responsible for shipping. If it doesn’t sell in 30 days, you can contact us at [email protected] for more options if you’re interested.

As to the clarinet, I zoomed in and saw ‘Strasser.’ Without more information, my quick estimate for the value is around $400 to $500. If you’d like to submit it as a separate appraisal, that might be the best way to go, so that it makes sense when the item is on the marketplace.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
