    I have NEVER ( 15+ trumpets ) sold a horn at the BIN price. It's usually the reserve or a few dollars more if there is a bidding war. Watch my Buescher Super 400 on eBay now. $425 Reserve with a BIN of $625 ending tomorrow afternoon. If it sells, I would guess $425 to $450 will be the final price.

    I don't understand the thread. No one need auctions to get the lowest price. Auctions by definition are there to make the MOST money through competitive bidding. Stop whining and just pay the BIN price if you want something.

    Me too, I thought you had to stick with the format you started with. People must know the tricks I suppose.

    Sorry, I meant to say, that the buy it now price is almost always higher than the selling price in the end.

    I've had a cold - not thinking so clear.
