Do you have an unused musical instrument? Here’s how to donate it via Ronnie Scott
Do you have a worn horn or an outdated saxophone? Is your dusty guitar a waste of bass? Donate your unused musical instruments to this amnesty.
Legendary jazz club Ronnie Scott’s wants your instruments. Not for themselves, but to pass on to budding young musicians who might find it hard to buy theirs – literally scot
All you have to do is bring your favorite instrument(s) to Ronnie Scott on January 22 (between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.). They look for just about any instrument, from electronic keyboards to guitars, and even gongs. They’re also looking for useful kit items like microphones, stands, and effects pedals.
Instruments in good condition or requiring only minor repairs are preferred, but you can also bring equipment that requires more difficult restoration (Paul Simonon, take note).
The club will use charities such as Sistema England to redistribute the instruments to children who would get the most out of them. Nina Kaye from the charity said: “There are children all over the country who want to learn to play an instrument but cannot afford to buy one – and there are thousands of instruments that take dust in cupboards and on shelves that need to be played. It’s initiatives like this that will bring music to many more young people and put instruments to their proper use.
