Playing in Time

Vintage instruments are primarily sought after by collectors. However, avid musicians (especially jazz & blues) have been making the move towards playing with history.

This led me to ask the question; Is it better to play with a vintage instrument???

Vintage instruments

  • Superior Craftsmanship
  • Better sound quality because of the craftsmanship
  • Safer money investment
  • Rare art
  • Cultural appreciation
  • Aging process effects tone
  • Better and more expensive materials

Modern Instruments

  • Accessibility – Easy to find
  • More affordable due to mass production
  • Easier to have repaired
  • Modern styles and decorations
  • Durability is greater
  • Warranties!

But just take a look at these beauties from the 1920’s.
