Borrow against Musical Instruments

Your musical instrument can provide you a loan at a reasonable rate.

Music is an artistic form of sound communication produced by special instruments that generate sound and tones. All cultures past and present have music. The earliest known instruments were made from animal bones and would best be described as a flute.

Whether you are a musician in the London Symphony Orchestra, play backup to Pharrell Williams, teach music from your home or can't play a note, we do not discriminate. Unbolted treats all owners the same.

Unbolted are experts in lending whatever type of instrument you have. String instruments (a cello, a double bass, a guitart, a viola or violin), Woodwind instruments (a bassoon, clarinet, flute, oboe, recorder or saxophone) or Brass instruments (a cornet, French horn, trombone, trumpet or tuba) or even Percussion instruments (cymbals, drums, tambourines, triangles) all have unlocked value. Perhaps your are the proud owner of the bagpipes that your father played in the regiment, the electric guitar from your band or The Band or even Jimi Hendrix's guitar. Unbolted will unlock the financial value for you to use elsewhere.

Whatever the brand from a Stradivarius to a Bosendorfer, Steinway, Yamaha or a Taylor, Fender, Hofner, Gretsch or even an Ibanez, we are here to find the best value for you.

As long as your musical instrument has an open market value, we will happily lend you up to 70% of this figure.

We understand that specialist knowledge in this field is paramount, which is why we work closely with industry leading experts and specialists in order to complete your valuations.
