King 3B-F for sale cheap on Facebook Marketplace

Post by Kingfan » Sun Sep 23, 2018 8:59 pm

I was checking local trombone listings, and found a deal in Caldwell, Ohio on I-77 south of Cambridge. King 3B-F, seller has it listed for $50 obo. I was told the slide is good, needs new string for the rotor, and the horn has some dents. If it weren't so far from Cleveland, and if I didn't already have one, I would be all over it. Somebody on the forum should jump on this deal.

$100 is still a good price. :good:

Could the owner be talked into shipping paid by buyer?

Well Tom, I really don't need another 3B-F; the one I own is just fine. But I don't play it much since I fell in love with my recently-acquired 1970 Conn 79H - that I play as often as I can (depending on ensemble and repertoire). I don't miss my now-sold Bach 36B at all.

Besides, I'm still suffering from the cold I picked up at the end of my last road trip 4 days ago. Found it hard to generate enough air to fill my bass trombone at the big band gig Saturday night! Another airplane flight is the last thing I need right now.

I messaged him on Facebook, he's not willing to ship it. If someone in the area wanted to buy it from him for me I'd pay them to ship it.

Dave, I was thinking more of a Thelma & Louis-style road trip! But, yeah, traveling while sick is not fun. Get better. Cheers.

If my memory serves me well, the "Thelma & Louis" road trip didn't end up well?

Just got notified it was sold. Somebody got a deal. And I had just convinced my wife it would be nice to take a road trip together!
