Re: Yamaha YSL 882 Nickel Silver Trombone Slide

If you try to sell for one month at a certain price and you don't get any bids, it's a strong indication of a too high price. You are way over market price I think.

If you buy it in order to resell it for more, I dont think it would be worth it. Might even be difficult to resell at the same price.
