I found a crazy cheap flight from Spain to NYC (200 dollars) and will spend few days there. I would like to use this opportunity to get an american trumpet, probably a Bach Strad.
The problem is that I'm quite short of money so I was thinking about selling my Bb Stomvi Forte (mint condition, almost new) to get some money. I asked Dillon Music and they can offer me a trade-in value of 700 usd, but I can get that money here too and I shouldn't have to carry the horn.
So do you know if I could get more money for my horn in another place? And, apart from there, how to buy a horn at a good price? I could have about 800 usd for a Strad. Is that possible? I should try craiglist? The problem is I have only few days, don't know the city and my GF would kill me if I spend all the holidays days just looking for horns
Thanks a lot!
