Hi all...I have a gold plated Wild Thing trumpet that I am considering putting up for sale. I believe they were retailing for over $4k and with gold over $1000/oz I assume that is still in the ballpark. The horn works well, BUT, took a good fall toward the beginning of the summer. With a weekend's worth of upcoming gigs I had the dent in the bell straightened out but not replated. The valves were fine. The plating is probably 75-80% intact on the entire horn. During my wait at the shop I tried then eventually ordered a Conn Vintage 1, rose brass gold plate horn that should be delivered next week. The original plan was to keep the WT as a back up. However after using my vintage LeBlanc 707 (a $400 Ebay purchase) all summer on everything from Dixieland to lead trumpet, I'm thinking why hold on to a horn that I am guessing would still fetch $2,000? The question is whether that seems reasonable and is it worth taking the time market... Any input is more than welcome.
