Hey all,

For sale is a 1964 88H. Serial number C978XX. Delightful instrument that happens to be one of the horns not being utilized and deserves to be played. I'm the second owner of this trombone. The original owner was a noted physician in Butte, Montana. As you will see in the photos, normal lacquer loss on the handgrips on the slide and bell tenon. Misc. surface scratches from use over the years. Two small pings on the bell. Slide action is good and has no wear on the inner stockings. Comes with the original case and is fully functional. The two spring latches have broken springs and can be easily replaced. The Wick mouthpiece in the photos is not included.

Very fun trombone to play! Plays like your stereotypical 88H from the era. Good ringing sound when pushed, nimble at soft volumes, and plays well in all registers.

Price is $1100 USD plus shipping, payable by Paypal. I will sell/ship internationally. Message me if you have any questions or interested in purchasing.

Thanks!

It's a tough time for musicians and wanted to put a great horn out there at a great price.
