    well ive played since i was like 10, but i havent played in a while. and im contemplating selling my trumpet. sure i love playing but i just dont have time to anymore and id rather put the money to something more productive (meaning it will go to my car :) ) i was just wondering if there was a possibility, however small, that someone might be interested.

    trumpet is a Bb Bach TR200 Silver trumpet. its a good intermedite level trumpet. only problem is a little bend in the bell from when i accidentally dropped it when i was in like 9th grade. this trumpet costs about 1000 brand new. i was thinking about asking like 400 for it. is this a fair price?

    i know this could be in for sale, but the way i see it its mostly for car parts, and this isnt 100 % a for sale thread. :)

    I play the Tuba :lol:

    *edit: There's a store down here (TX) called Mr. E's, and they buy old stuff like that for a pretty fair price.

    its on the top, its kinda hard to get a pic of. the flash keeps fucking it up and making it look like its not there, lol

    but just from my initial research, 700 is way too much. 3-400 seems to be the number. ive got it up on a trumpet board, we'll see.
