Ok their is a guy on Ebay "rnbsitler" instead of selling the trumpet's and other instruments that are playable and in good shape he strips them and sells them. So right now if you want you can by a Holten Colligate body for one price, set of thee valves for another price, tuning slides for another price and so on. Now I have no problem with people parting out horns that are damaged tot he point that it would cost more to repair them then what they are worth etc......This horn though is in pristine shape outside of a small flat spot onthe edge of the bell. I did not see the finger buttons I can only guess what he did with those. I thought about being the valves out of spite just so that he would be stuck with a horna nd slides that no one could use!!!! I love watching some people relist the same junk for months at a time and it not selling! It becomes like a landmark while searching. I would hope that no one would buy from him until he stops parting out good horns. If he sold every part he still has for it he is looking at $60 but that is a big if because if someone buys the valves and slides first he is stuck with a trumpet body with a flat spot onthe bell with no valves and no slides. If he had sold it outright he could have easily made $40 or more off it and not had to worry about being stuck with somethign. Sure if he got stuck with it he would just toss it in the trash because that is how people like him operate. I just went back their and I was wrong he still has the buttons and valve caps so it is complete. I sent him a nasty grahm telling politely what I thought of that practice and my sincer hope that no one will buy from him until he stops that practice. What is next a Kunstal or Bach Strad stripped and pimed out pice mill??? I do not know about the rest of the pack but I have never ever came across some one that had three valves, buttons and cap's sitting in their junk drawer at home waiting for the rest of the trumpet to come along on ebay to make their trumpet complete!!!LOL Let the opinions fly!!!
