    Guys,
    I found a 1972 bach Strad 180ML #37 Bell on trumpet trader website for $850.00. I think I will like it and am considering buying it since I need a pro horn anyway. Is this a good deal and what do you guys think ? ROFL

    I'm not a Bach guy, but that sounds reasonable if it is mechanically sound.

    I bought one of my first horns from them. They are at the top end of the price spectrum to be sure i.e. bloody expensive. I would go in lowball and bargain hard. At least get yourself one of their really cool t shirts.

    Sounds like a good price, if mechanically sound, like tobylou said. I see a lot of the early Elkharts going for $1000 or more.

    JEEZ LOUIS!!! :shock::shock::shock::-o:-o:-o I just went to their website. $850 for an Ambassador!! If that Bach is really $850, it's one of their cheaper horns. One would think for those prices, better photos would be in order. Yuk, I gotta go take a bath now!!:noway::noway:

    che-hi! Somebody just dealt me a low blow staight in the nut and it really hurt. I called TT to close the deal on this horn today and they said someone just bought it. Are some folks here double dealing or what.....

    Probably more likely that it is one of the biggest online trumpet sales sites, so someone probably saw it there...

    Plus, if you think you've found a deal you might be interested in, don't advertise where you found it.

    That I've learned for sure. Can't trust anybody here.
