Behning & Sons Bass Trumpet?

Post by ttf_sirisobhakya » Sun Jan 28, 2018 3:19 pm

Have anyone heard of it? It is a rotary-valved bass trumpet.

I saw it (and can still see it, the auction is not yet over) on Yahoo Auction Japan. I searched a bit, and found that it is Chinese-made, despite the label on the bell "France-Germany", but maybe that is only the nationality of the marketing firm.

I don't trust Chinese-made instrument in general (except Wessex, which, unfortunately, is not available here, I believe), but this one is pretty cheap (~$270 and still noone has yet come up with higher price), and I don't need quality instrument, just one with which I can mess around sometimes.

The link is here. The auction has ended, but I am quite sure it will pop up again, maybe at an even cheaper price, since it looks like no one bid for it.

Do you think this is a good deal? Thank you for your answer.

At what price point should I consider it?
