Nearly new Bach 42AF (Infinity Valve). Selected at the Bach plant in Elkhart on June 27, 2016. Near-perfect condition (no mute ever inserted). No dings. One minor instance of acid bleed on the bell bead. 5 eyelash-sized scratches on the upper bell stem where my wedding ring came in contact when assembling instrument. They are so small that I cannot photo-capture them. No wear on slide or neck pipe. I can email a pic of the acid bleed. Description from the Bach site: Bach "Stradivarius" - .547" large bore, 8-1/2" one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass bell, open wrap F attachment with the new Infinity axial flow valve, yellow brass outer slide, clear lacquer finish, Bach 6-1/2A mouthpiece, C1867A woodshell case. All yellow brass. Standard slide. Soldered leadpipe. Includes (new style) case never used and mouthpiece, never opened. Mail-order-roulette new price is 3,869 plus. This example, hand-picked is $3,300 plus shipping. Will try here before going to eBay. Peter Ellefson

For Sale: Conn 4H
Conn 4H Small-bore (0.484) Elkhart Conn from 1947 in near-pristine condition. Silver plate with gold wash inside bell, minor plating wear in one patch on the tuning slide and 2 very small dings in the bell flare from a previous owner storing it in an ill-fitting case. Slide moves freely, no wear on the stockings, minimal dulling of silver plating at hand contact points. Beautiful instrument that I don't play often enough to justify keeping. Comes in a newer two-tone leather Cronkhite case (which itself cost ~$400). Asking $2000 plus shipping, email for pictures. Will consider reasonable offers or potentially a trade for a good medium bore instrument.

Student model Bach tenor trombone. The slide works great without any disruptions. Comes with standard 12C Vincent Bach student mouthpiece. The only wear is on the bottom of the slide from use of a 6th grader for about a month. All around great horn.

For Sale: King 606
King 606 tenor trombone. A lot of lacquer wear through use of many owners over time. The slide is odd but ergonomic and is best (as far as I have found) when not lubricated - probably just need to find the right kind of lubricant. Comes with case but one of the latches to the case has been gone since I received it. Overall great horn especially for jazz playing. Also comes with an older King 12C mouthpiece.

For Sale: Wessex Dolce Euphonium
Wessex Dolce Euphonium Compensating euphonium manufactured by Jinbao, rather faithful copy of the Yamaha 642 (I have played them side by side, would not be able to distinguish without checking the engravings). I have the model in silver with gold trim, originally $1300. Condition is as you would expect from a year and a half of light use; minor mute dings in the bell and a few scratches on the plating. Valves work nicely with Hetman light oil. The original case had durability issues, so I upgraded to a lighter wessex gig bag. The unstamped mouthpiece that came with the horn (I think about 5G in size) is not great, but I'll include it and/or a gold-plated DC5 if desired. Asking $800.
