As I have said in earlier posts, Ebay is full of musical instruments whose value are artificially inflated. Here is a prime example. This horn will need a new lead pipe, valve cap. dent removal, cleaning, valve adjustment, new pads on the spit valves and that might not cover it about $200 - $300, right. They want $75 CONN 1000A TRUMPET CORNET PARTS PROJECT OSHC VINTAGE ?? - eBay (item 380281154786 end time Oct-27-10 19:22:07 PDT) I'd give this guy $10 for it because of risk. The sad thing is there is someone that will buy it.
