I found this trumpet for sale at a Pawnshop a little over a year ago and I figured..., What the hay, I used to be pretty good at this a long time ago, so I bought it. The valves wer stuck and the leadpipe was bent downward in a precarious way, as if someone had done it intentionally so they could come back and buy it later. I bargained down the price from 199.00 (way overpriced) to a semi-reasonable 140 dollars, paid the man and went about my day.
As I started to re-furbish/re-condition the trumpet, I became somewhat attached to the thing and although it did have a really nice sound, I would have to use alternate fingerings whiloe playing with the church group, just to stay in tune. The time came to sell it and get something a little more conducive to play in a group setting. I posted it on "Craigslist" and sold it to a nice lady who had a son that was interested in learning ro play Trumpet. I gave them what seemed like a fair price (Lower than what I paid) and they went on their way.
So, as I always surf "Craigslist" for my next re-furb project what do I find??? Low and behold, there is the "B-USA" trumpet advertised for sale at of all places..., back in the pawnshop.
*****B STUDENT TRUMPET FOR SALE*****
The "B-USA" is back at the pawnshop.., completing the circle of life, to start all over again!!
