    His would probably be "worth" more, seeing as Jacobs tuba is worth $25, 000.

    $9000.00 Bach Mt Vernon For Sale for 9grrrrrrrrr

    IMO...ALL of this guy's horns are way overpriced...especially for the condition that alot of them are in! He used to show a pic of a horn with about 20% lacquer remaining, 2-3 major dents, bell out of alignment, & describe it as near mint!!!! (guess pic was pre-fixing up!). He buys ALOT of them dirt cheap on eBay then pumps the price. He's as bad as hotdeal1smoko...or whatever he calls himself! Just my 2 cents.

    I agree. I purchased a low serial number L bore Elkhart C trumpet from the Horntrader last year. The photo looked great, when I got the horn it had been damaged, buffed hard and replated (none of which was disclosed to me). I sent it back after having it for an hour and he refunded my money, but it cost me shipping and a "restocking fee" that I wasn't told about until I chose to return it.

    I'll never buy a horn from him again. Ever.
