    Just a tentative enquiry (as I have a Summer School paid for, on T/horn, to attend before selling).

    I have decided to leave brass banding (as there are too few where I live) and move onto trumpet in a Concert Band.

    So, is here or Ebay the best option?

    It was the first sold in the UK, a few months back, is unmarked, as new, in silver plate.

    Oh, and what sort of price should I ask??

    Can I suggest you sell it for £50, to me?

    £2000. Collection from Somerset, (or nearish), only. Not willing to risk it in the post.

    The hard case is unused. The instrument is 'as new' totally unmarked and in pristine condition.

    It comes with the original Yamaha mouthpiece and a Heritage 1. Both unused. This was the first Neo sold in the UK (possibly the world according to Yamaha).

    As this item is now properly for sale I've moved the thread to Classifieds.

    Rapier - do you know if you stick it on ebay and link the auction back to here we can get a cut of the final selling price for no extra cost to you or your buyer? Just a thought...:)

    Thanks Ian, yes I'm aware of the Ebay perk and will go down that route if I get no interest.

    Forgot to say the sale includes a K&M Tenor Horn stand.

    (would consider a swap for a good quality trumpet, Eclipse or Taylor level).
  10. Rapier, sorry you packing up to go concert band. Always a pleasure to play in band with you sign of times when not many bands around or too few players.

    Thanks for that TBB. But I need to play at a reasonable level and that means crossing to the Dark Side. I mean, they even have french horns!!

    So to condense the thread.

    1 'as new' Yamaha Neo Tenor horn, in unused case.
    2 mouthpieces (Yamaha and Heritage 1 unused)
    1 K&M Tenor Horn Stand.

    £2000 or near offer. (Willing to swap for good quality trumpet).

    collection only, from near Minehead, Somerset, but will travel 60ish miles to meet up.

    Relisted, starting at £1900. (this sale includes unused Yamaha m/piece, a Heritage (size 1) (tried for around 20 minutes ony). (costing around £50+) and a K&M Stand ( costing around £70+).

    May consider carriage, which is around £18. (but wouldn't try to pack the K&M Horn Stand with the Tenor Horn)

    Really is a great instrument and certainly the best I've tried (and I have tried pretty much every horn made).

    I have withdrawn this from sale. I'd rather keep it, than sell at a 'give away' price.

    (No bids at £1900 for an instrument that costs £2583 plus £120 of extras.)

    At least I'll be able to play it at IBBSS at the end of the month. And go back to my 'new' Taylor Trumpet when I get back.
