There are so many different types of musical instruments going into auction that it can be difficult to tell how much a particular item might be worth.

The Worst Advice for Bidding at Auctions.

If you are interested in visiting an auction house for the purposes of bidding, then you may have already sought out advice from friends and neighbours, or even tried to take tips from TV auction or antiques shows. While these tips and tricks might work for others, or occasionally have worked out due to chance, for most bidders, the advice that is offered by friends, or by watching specialist shows, will be no competition for the expertise and knowledge of the auction houses themselves.
