I think it highly unlikely tariffs between the US and UK post brexit would rise. I would have thought the reverse more likely. Cheaper steak being an obvious benefit and well sterilised chickens. Tariffs between the EU and UK post brexit is anybodies guess. For musical instruments I cannot see much need for change. However: a view below.

. Many musical instruments are manufactured outside the EU and are subject to tariffs, VAT and bureaucracy when imported currently, so this is not likely to change in the short term. In the longer term, tariffs on imports of musical instruments may be reduced or eliminated, but as they are small anyway the impact is likely to be minimal.

One potential impact is that some private UK purchasers may be dissuaded from buying from retailers in the EU because of the risk of instruments being held up in customs with all the bureaucratic problems that that involves
