Sarrusophone 4 Sale?

My pricing was based on the very few sales I've seen of contra Sarrusophones. You may be more accurate if you have a larger sample size. I think mine was three or four :).
I've been keeping track ;-) At the height of the dot com era, Eb contras were selling for up to US$11K. Since the crash, they usually go for under US$6K (and, depending on condition and having all the parts, sometimes as low as $2K).

I maintain a low volume list for people who are looking for sarrusophones. Basically, whenever I run across one for sale, I post it to the list. Happens about 3-5 times a year...
