I agonized over a Holton with a recording bell on E**y not too long ago, and finally decided that $2,000 was too much to pay, given its dented and scratched condition, plus the fact that it had only the recording bell. I sometimes regret not buying it...the owner traded it in at Dillon, where it will be overhauled and sold, I'm sure, for a lot more than $2,000. All this to say that I think $5,000 is WAY too much to pay for a horn that's going to need an overhaul and refinishing. On the other hand, it's only money, and I guess one has to follow ones' heart in these matters. Good luck.
