Or perhaps the seller could be charged with taking the p*ss.I did notice that it says "Make Offer"... Maybe he'd be willing to settle for a reasonable offer... out of curiousity, however, what if someone makes an objectively unreasonable offer? For instance- "Your sales price is $4000 but I will offer to purchase it for $4.00?" Obviously the seller ignores it but could someone be banned on ebay for harassment?
First off, this guy is not going to get 4K for that. We have discussed this Ebay posting before.Dang! I've got an old C.G. Conn C Melody I inherited from my Dad. It was passed down to him from his Dad. He made me promise never to sell it but I never play it (hate C Melody). The thing is in like new condition and plays great for what it is. I play it once every 6 months or so just to keep the pads from getting brittle. If this guy can get 4 grand for his Buescher I might have to break down and sell mine (sorry, Dad).
I agree with DannyMetalC that "Hate" is a very strong & unjustified word to describe a sax which is slap bang in the middle of the saxophone range.Dang! He made me promise never to sell it but I never play it (hate C Melody).
Possibly rehab for it's feelings of insecurity...."no-one listens to me & no-one plays me".Ah, now I understand, to quote the seller, the sax has been thro' a "full professional rehab..."
Still suffering withdrawal symptoms probably, hence the confusion about value ? Poor old thing, shouldn't happen to a gentle old C at its age, what is the world coming to ?
Absolutely spot on.Now then Mr C Buescher, don't be sad, just get a metal Lawton 8*BB and a Plasticover #3 reed - they'll listen to you then !
I've been following the thread about the true Sub-Contrabass horn also. Can you imagine being able to feel the hertz in your mouth! The sound of that thing just... erm ... hert.could perhaps question the raison d'etre for the soprillo
Such rich alliteration! Of course the effect you describe is one of my favorite things about C Tenors, the prices stay down when the illusion that they are shoddy is maintained. Perhaps we shouldn't be posting such secrets here on SOTW... before we know it they could rocket up in value- *snicker* ... Not.The bright side being that this calumny results in the cognoscenti being able to buy them at bargain prices....I hate to think what my Martin typewriter would have cost had it been pitched in Bb.
