King 2b, 1940s

Post by noahjordan » Sat Jan 12, 2019 12:33 pm

Hi all,
I'm selling my 1940s King 2b, serial #299399
The condition is very good, no significant problems
some wear and tear but aesthetic

I'm looking to get $3000 Canadian Dollars, but I am willing to take offers. I am not really a trombonist, more of a pianist who had a few year excursion into the trombone in my wild years, so I don't fully understand the value of this instrument, but this is about what I've been told.

Not sure how to attach pictures here, but here is a link to my craigslist ad which does have pictures:

I should point out that for your price point ($3,000 Cdn) I should get a mint condition silver bell instrument (SilverTone in 1940s). A brass belled version in mint condition would command $2000. If there is wear on the instrument, you probably should be asking less than half of that. A used but good condition King 2B Liberty should go for around $750 and a silver belled for around $1500.
