Hello! I am new to TM. I am writting because I would like to know the value of my Benge trumpet. It is an old Los Angeles, CA Bb Benge, with silver finish. It is still in great condition with the original case. I am not sure how old it is, but the valves work great and all the slides move freely and come off with a big pop, with the exception of the 3rd slide that is a little stuck. The finish is still in tact and in great condition for its age, except for a little tarnish (especially on the bell) which is probably easily removeable. The bell reads "Resno-Tempered Bell 5; Custom Built By E-BENGE; Los Angeles, Calif." The Serial No. is 26653. Also,the middle valve has the letters ML on it. I susspect the trumpet is about 20-30 years old, but I'm not sure. It still plays very,very well and has good tone. I am considering selling the instrument, but I do not know how much to sell it for. If anyone has any idea on the value of this trumpet and what price to ask for it, please let me know. Thank You.
