    Don't worry, Gordon, your vision is OK. It does look bent. It can be designed that way, but it is not quite likely. Above you can see a picture of "normal" weril regium piccolo trumpet:

    Its a bit shocking seeing as its a normally well resepcted retailer selling it, who have their own repair shop on the premises.

    Notice that they do not have a picture of the other side of the horn. To be bent that far down it is probably creased at the soldered brace on the valve body. I would stay away or at least ask for a GOOD picture and clarification of condition. $2,000.00 seems high for a horn damaged this way. The "Fantastic Price" could dry up when the repair bill hits. Good Luck
