    The price for such a lovely horn seems much lower than "seemingly" similiar horns. I looked see if the front F or range (left hand palm keys) would justify a lower price. Wonder what's up, it's a gorgeous instrument. Guess there could be a minimum accepted price that we can't see.

    IIRC, that same horn has been for sale not that long ago. (I remember his ad copy as well.)

    The standard "rule-of-thumb" I've come up with for eBay is, "If the horn doesn't have a name on the bell that other folks instantly recognize, it's newer than 1930, and it's an alto, it's not going to be worth more than $500." As with all rules-of-thumb, there are exceptions. (Oh. If it's before 1930ish and it's not gold plated, in perfect shape, and it's an alto, it's probably going to be worth less than $500.)

    I'm slowly compiling another post for my "photoblog" regarding professional horns under $1000 -- the $1000 number is picked because I assume any eBay horn needs at least $300 repair and the cheapest Taiwanese horn marketed as "pro" is a $1400 Cannonball -- and I've been somewhat surprised with what I've seen. A couple of surprises have been Yamaha 855 and 875 Custom horns in the $1500 - $1800 range.

    CA Wunderlich CEA.

    As mentioned elsewhere, CA Wunderlich probably never made their own saxophones. The engraving on this horn is quite similar to FX Huller horns I've seen, but I really haven't done any research on this one. Just found it while trying to sort through some of my misc bookmarks.

    HN White King "Artist."

    This is one of the rare King horns in gold plate, with additional engraving and additional pearl keytouches, similar to the Conn New Wonder Virtuoso Deluxe finished horns.
