Ugly Conn 88HO

Slide is 8.5 out of 10. No dents in the tuning slides. Valve is quiet and smooth. It's got some dents in the throat and theres some acid bleed around the bell. Plays like most 88HOs. Be excellent for a back up horn or for a student stepping up. If you stripped the lacquer it'd look a lot better. $80...
