    His would probably be "worth" more, seeing as Jacobs tuba is worth $25, 000.

    IMO...ALL of this guy's horns are way overpriced...especially for the condition that alot of them are in! He used to show a pic of a horn with about 20% lacquer remaining, 2-3 major dents, bell out of alignment, & describe it as near mint!!!! (guess pic was pre-fixing up!). He buys ALOT of them dirt cheap on eBay then pumps the price. He's as bad as hotdeal1smoko...or whatever he calls himself! Just my 2 cents.

    I agree. I purchased a low serial number L bore Elkhart C trumpet from the Horntrader last year. The photo looked great, when I got the horn it had been damaged, buffed hard and replated (none of which was disclosed to me). I sent it back after having it for an hour and he refunded my money, but it cost me shipping and a "restocking fee" that I wasn't told about until I chose to return it.

    I'll never buy a horn from him again. Ever.

    WOW!!!!!....I just went to his new site...his prices are more outrageous than ever!!! Must be to pay for the new site? Check this out....click on "cornets" at the top and check out the first cornet (it's a large bore Bach). Now read the description...NO dents nor dings????? Now go back and look at the pic...man this guy has nerve!!!! Maybe he thinks trumpet players can't see?????? FWIW!!!
