Includes: Hard-shell casemedium bore mouthpiece (thoroughly disinfected and cleaned professionally)one tube of slide cream This beginner-level Tenor trombone was purchased in 2008 as a starter trombone for myself for school. I’m currently a music major in college and in need of a trombone with an F Key attachment, so I’m not going to need my old trombone anymore. It’s been with me throughout middle and high school, including five years of marching band, so it has a few bumps and bruises. Mild to moderate scratches on the outer portion of the tuning slide, and four dings the size of a nickel or smaller on the piping before the bell, but all of them are cosmetic. There are no scratches, no problems whatsoever with the tuning slide and the main slide. Both are in perfect working condition. The only part that needs replacing is the cork for the spit valve, but that’s a common issue with trombones, and all wind instruments. Corks need replacing every once in a while, and that’s why you can buy them in packs of 30 for as little as $15. I have loved this fine instrument dearly, and it gave me my life and made me who I am. I hope it will find a home with another young musician who’s eager to learn a skill that will stick with them for the rest of their life.
