If no wine cork, use the plastic end cap that plugs into the neck receiver at the top of the horn, prior to storage in the case. Works just as well as a cork dropped into the bell for gurgling.

Lesson learned: -never- divulge ANY info other than what's necessary to view the horn. People do sh*tty stuff, so you have to be prepared. Process: 1) view the item 2) keep your mouth shut 3) offer a $deal$ to them 4) buy it -immediately- or walk away and move on. Anything else is opening yourself up to crap like this.

I once(lonnnng ago) responded to a local newspaper ad for a Selmer M6 alto for sale. I went by, took a look, talked $$$ and we settled on $150, cash. Yup, you heard me right....unfortunately, I didn't have the cash -with- me, so I went by the ATM and was back in about 10 minutes. OOPS, seller reconsidered, upped the price to $175. I countered with $162.50 and walked out with a sax and a very important lesson learned. And, fwiw, I didn't get too pissed with the seller, as I brought it all on myself.
