Amati holds an auction of stringed musical instruments almost every month of the year. We have three distinct types of auction: Specialist Auctions, Amati Affordable Auctions, and Single Owner Auctions.

Amati Online Auctions take place online. We use high quality photography for all our lots. The auctions last 12 days, and you can bid at any time. Bidding is particularly intense on the last day.

Amati hold Viewing Days so you can admire and examine the items that interest you. We always recommend that you try an instrument in person before you start bidding.

Occasionally some items remain unsold. If so, we hold online bidding open for the unsold lots. The aftersales period lasts 2 days.

After each auction, Amati holds a collection day in London where you can pick up your purchases.
