    check eBay for a listing recently listed today. Jan 3rd 2019.
    Conn Vintage trumpet. I think it might be a 4B based on the perpendicular 2nd slide. I tried a 2B once and enjoyed it. So I have read the 4B is similar to the the 2B.

    I was thinking I do not require another trumpet for now. Thought I can pass this opportunity along to this forum readers.

    Those of us with the N+1 virus try to avoid words like "require".

    To me it looks like a fair price. I see no need in trying to get top dollar out of anything if it’s already served you well

    Not that I’ve ever thought of selling it but if my B47 ever hits the block I would only ask around $300 for it even though I paid almost $900.

    Maybe the seller knows and doesn’t subscribe to greed

    When you post a trumpet for sale. Let me Know! Do you have any vintage Blessing or Conn?

    I asked them a few questions. They didn't know what model or if it was pro or intermediate or what.

    I do have a vintage Blessing Artist which I still enjoy playing but when I no longer play it I will donate it to where it will be in the hands of someone who needs it.

    I’ve donated 6 of my instruments to date and feel no loss
