Since I'm not a tárogató player, I don't know anything about the value/price of this particular instrument. I just got an email notification about it today because I have Hammerschmidt set up as a notification of mine through eBay. Nonetheless, I thought it was interesting enough since I don't remember seeing a Hammerschmit-made tárogató before. The company is known more for being a high-end clarinet maker (and so/so saxophones). Does anyone have an opinion on their tárogatós? Are they any good? Not this one in particular, but in brand in general? Are they common? Is just shy of $3,000 a normal price for a vintage instrument? Inquiring sax players--who are also Hammerschmidt saxophone historians--want to know.
