That $7000. price sounds really high unless
this is a special model like the Hilgers w/a quint valve.
Find out what model# this MW is so you can compare apples and
apples. I've included some other used horn sources w/info:
MW 45S w/bag 4600.
MW 46S w/case and bag 3900.
45SLP no bag 4195.
Woodwind and Brasswind-outlet store-used
2 ea MW "Philharmonic" 46S w/bag 2800. & 3000.
Miraphone 181-6U NEW no bag 4767.47
Bass Clef Brass
MW45slp price not posted
Miraphone 181-5U 3900.
There are MANY sources you may want to look at. Also, get
your son's teacher's input and advice on these instruments.
Good luck with your search!
