But I hate to sell it. Such a cool horn. I am also consider selling my Eclipse MR. It isn't really different from my other horns. I sold an early 1900's Vega large bore #5 to Brad Goode a while back. It was a cool horn and played well, but didn't get played much. Even though it was a unique and cool horn, I don't miss it. I guess if I don't need the money I may as well keep them.
    Its absolutely my BEST intention to sell off a good part of my collection. I think about it with no trepidation at all, even sort through the horns to discover ones I haven't much noticed since I first got them because they were received in the middle of a busy period. I've gotten rid of al but a few of my start up horns; those I feel good about donating. My Holton collection will, as my Vega collection will never go. When I am determined that its time and I'll get rid of all but those two collections and???? thats where I get stuck. I know, and tell others to just get rid of them but I'm a hypocrite. When I saw that the L5 vega was once available, sold and I didn't get a chance at it I feel a sense of loss. Why did I become so...addicted?

    By the way, if there are more Vegas that someone wants to unload, here I am !

    Wow, Joe1Joey, I didn't know. Sorry. The Vega L5 was a nice horn. Brad Goode might still have it and I don't think he plays it.
