About

Started in July 2011 and based in the South West of England, near Hayle, Cornwall at Duchy Brass I buy and sell brass musical instruments and endeavour to offer my customers the highest quality at affordable prices.

I have been involved with retailing brass musical instruments on ebay for over fifteen years (please look up username ‘jennyt125’ for over 1000 positive feedback ratings) and decided to sell from a website due to increasing ebay and paypal costs. Originally started as Cash4Brass I decided to change the name in October 2014 to Duchy Brass as I feel it better reflects the quality and Cornish roots of the business as well as avoiding confusion with other retailers using a similar “Cash4” name.

I specialise in purchasing brass musical instruments from other retailers, private individuals or brass bands / wind bands who are either wishing to sell or trade in. Therefore before you sell or trade in your brass musical instrument please contact me and provide me with the information requested to give you a quotation.
