    It looked really good until the close up pictures of the bell. I know what it is supposed to "say", but alas, it doesn't. :-(

    In the description it mentions "hand polished". What do these "restorers" think while doing this?? "There we go, almost all those scratches are gone"!!! Do these folks know anything about what they are doing???

    UGH!!!!! Oh yeah, they want what a pristine one of these would cost. :x:x:x:x

    I hand polish my horns but I don't think I could ever rub that much metal off. By hand must mean holding a buffing wheel

    That's one ruined horn right there (the top one). It may still play ok, but its overall worth is much lower with that "hand polishing".

    The worst part is that basically everything they sell is like these.
