I am a sadly ex trumpet player with loans, so I'm looking to sell my horn. It's a Stradivarius Bach Model 43, the Sterling Silver Plus model, which means the bell is solid silver. The slides are in quite good shape. The valves are a little stiff, but not too bad. The lacquer has come off the silver in spots, and looks pretty tarnished right now, but a little elbow grease and silver polish and it will look just fine. There is some very slight and hardly noticeable tarnishing on the brass parts of the horn. I paid $1800 for it new in 2002, but I'm not sure how much I should expect for it now. Is $1000 too much/too little?
