Audio Gear Consignment Program

Nerd Audio Consignment

Nerd Audio prides itself in offering a wide variety of new, used, and vintage synthesizers / hardware production tools. Our extensive selection of professional gear and highly passionate staff have made Nerd Audio Chicago’s go-to synthesizer shop since founding in 2012.

Recently we have initiated a consignment program to not only expand our ongoing collection of used and vintage gear, but also to offer fellow Chicagoan's a sales floor for their gear. Using our platform, your gear will have maximum exposure through our storefront and online presence.


To have your item(s) considered for consignment:

  • They must be in working condition. As a necessary precaution
  • All item(s) will undergo an evaluation period by Nerd Audio staff members to ensure their full functionality and physical condition.
  • Original packaging and other materials (cases, carrying bags, cables etc) are NOT required but highly encouraged.


Upon approval, Nerd Audio reserves the right to negotiate the pricing range with the item’s owner. In the best interest of the client, the shop, and the customer - all items must be priced within the current market value range. When determining said value, Nerd Audio will take into account the sale price of current and recently completed listings on other marketplaces such as eBay, Reverb, Wigglehunt, etc.

Nerd Audio retains 20% of final sale price. All Illinois state taxes will be paid by the final buyer if applicable.

 Please note, we recommend calling or emailing prior to bringing anything into the shop. Feel free to reach out to us anytime at (773) 975-4250 or email us at
