The market of rare and fine instruments is not only very active, but one that continues to grow in frequency and movement. No longer are they considered ‘no risk’ options. Instead, it is the allure of unique ‘objet d’art’ that has piqued the interest of the high net worth, who actively seek the best safe haven for their wealth. Instruments have the added benefit of being from a stable market, with notable demand over supply between collectors and players. Though historically not widely recognized as assets for investment, rare stringed instruments are gaining interest due to the continual increase in value, growing demand and finite supply. The restricted supply and increasing demands from international markets accelerate the gains for rare and fine instruments. Instruments also have the distinct advantage of appreciating in value with age. Their tone grows in depth as its unique story adds to the resonating qualities of the instrument.
