Hello all,
I'm the second owner of this particular horn. I believe it is from the early 90's. The horn is in good shape. I tried to capture in the photos the misc. small pings in the bell from mute changes and a few in the bell throat. One tiny ping in the main tuning slide. Also, two small areas of lacquer wear in the handslide. No wear to the inner stockings. The slide hasn't been cleaned in a while and is currently about an 8.5/10. Aside from that, cosmetically the horn is in good shape!

The horn plays, well, like a Benge 190. Warm, brilliant when pushed, and good range throughout.

Price is $950 plus shipping, payment by Paypal. I will sell internationally. Message me with questions or interest.

This trombone appears overall to be in good shape. With an excellent case! Even if you spend a couple of hundred $ fixing the dents, adjusting the (excellent) valve, and cleaning/aligning the slide it should be a good deal.

Good luck, Steve.

This looks like a late ‘90’s example. I have two; an earlier 90’s with the older engraving and a late 90’s like this one. They are both great horns in their own ways. Anyone who wants a great horn at a great price should snap this up, it’s well worth whatever you have to invest to make it perfect.
