I have a new student wanting to take lessons. He just moved into the area and used to play tuba in his junior high band. He is now home schooled and does not own an instrument. I listened to him play my horn and really would like him to continue playing, but he will have to pay for his own lessons as his parents cannot afford them nor a horn. I really don't care to give him mine to take home, so I need some help. I need to find a horn in playable shape for a very low price. I would prefer he played a BBb, since that is what I use and would create less confusion, but an EEb would be acceptable. Like I said, a playable horn! I don't need a case, four valves, pretty to look at or anything, just a horn. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I intend to pay for the horn myself and let him pay it out with his part time job.
