1. TromboneChat is not eBay and does not guarantee transaction satisfaction. Don't get scammed; caveat emptor.

2. TromboneChat administrators and moderators are in no way endorsing any sellers, advertisers, or items.

3. TromboneChat Classifieds are free.

4. Occasional "bump posts" are allowed. Users who are, in the opinion of the moderators, abusing this privilege will be warned. After a warning, if the abuse continues, the user will be temporarily banned from posting.

5. Check the post date. It may be quite old. Sellers - update your post to let people know it's SOLD.

Enjoy browsing and posting in the Classifieds! Please send the moderators a PM if you need clarification.

NOTE: If you want to PM or e-mail another member, you can only do so after having two approved posts. Additionally, if you wish to receive e-mails, please update your profile to include your e-mail address. This is a more secure way of handling your e-mail. The classifieds are open to the major search engines and it's very easy for a bot to parse something like 'email at provider dot com' but without authentication and two approved posts, outsiders cannot see the e-mail you have in your profile.

I am so sad to list this horn for sale because it was such a great find! However, I am doing much more bass playing than tenor these days (let alone small bore tenor), and it's just sitting in the case unused...it deserves a good home :)

If you're in the market for a small bore horn, or you're a vintage Elkhart Conn lover, consider this horn. The slide is in great condition with only two VERY SMALL spots of wear on the stocking. (Conn's are known for that inner wear, but I suspect this horn sat in a case in a closet/attic for a very long time.) The slide action is probably 8.5/10 - not bad for a horn that turns 60 next year! It might benefit from an alignment job, but I had no problems with it using the purple bottle Yamaha Slide Lubricant.

Asking $850 plus shipping, but I am willing to negotiate best offers!
