About Catawiki's musical instruments auction

Music has been a culturally important part of human life for societies around the world for thousands of years. In Western culture, notable musical genres include Medieval; Renaissance; Baroque; Classical; Romantic and Modern music. In the 20th Century, technological advancement has enabled musicians to add effects and synthesise new sounds. Digital technology has also enabled the editing of music, resulting in the correcting and adapting of recorded music, prior to release or publication. There are now hundreds of known musical instruments, from stringed instruments, such as violins and guitars, to percussion instruments such as drums and cymbals. Collectors and enthusiasts prize musical instruments for their unusual designs, intriguing sounds and famous associations or provenances.

Catawiki’s musical instrument auctions have included lots such as a Bass Saxophone by Rene Guinot, which sold for £1,924 and a Fender Stratocaster 1959 electric guitar, which sold for £6,413.
