I have been going to the same Starbucks before for about 5 years now and consequently get to know the kids that work there.. I mentioned that I was picking up the trumpet and one of the kids there said he had 2 trumpets he hadn't touched in years (years for a 25yo is probably 6)
I told him I was looking for a horn as I really hate my Bach1530. He said they were student horns and he would heavily dcount them... so he takes a few pictures of them with his cell and shows them to me..
one is a Bach 37 Elkhart ... and the other a Yamaha 2330 ...
I probably could have gotten both of them for $400 .. but Karma ..
I told him what they were worth ( really worth) and made his day... and told him that I really couldn't afford what they were worth right now.. but I could help him sell them. and don't feel bad about going for the $$$$
the cool part ..
We worked out a deal ..
