Well, who knows what the reserve price is on the Big B? The seller may be looking for a relatively high price. That 140 did go for a very, very good price and the buyer might have got a real steal, assuming the horn was in decent playing shape. On ebay you never know for sure.homildo5512 said:Both are so cheap, especially compared with Conns and Selmers of similar vintage which are going for thousands of dollars more. Is there a catch?
The claim regarding a world record for circular breathing is a bit suspicious, but again, who knows for sure?
One thing is sure, those are both excellent vintage altos, assuming they are in good condition.
