    Some of you might remember I purchased a trumpet on Ebay because the seller advertised the horn as having a Copper Bell. Long story short, it looked like a copper bell but wasn't solid copper. The seller was resistant to taking it back. She beat me to the punch and created a PayPal claim. I won the claim, and was instructed to ship it back to the seller. PayPal credited my account for the full amount $215.00. Some sellers don't know what they're selling, SO AS TRUMPETERS AND BUYERS WE NEED TO ASK THE HARD QUESTIONS BEFORE FINDING A PROBLEM IN OUR HANDS. I will from now on.

    word. it happens more than occasionally that someone will receive an ebay trumpet with frozen slides, stuck valves, or worse.
