The "grade" (483; 683; 883) isn't important nor is condition unless it has been beaten into trash. I might even consider an Asian clone (Thomann "Student" or "Student Pro", Wessex "Prague", etc.)

I have a very nice Yamaha YCB-661 five valve CC "Yamahapiggy" that I will consider to trade ... I've decided to stick with BBb.

https://photos.google.com/album/AF1QipP ... 7kJGdf81zr I have a 693 with a protec bag. Also have a wheeled case that is big enough for it but I need to modify the padding for it to fit. Helleberg mouthpiece. $2900 for all. No shipping, but I can drive as far as Mid Georgia on a weekend to meet up.

My strong preference is for an older *83 model Arion - 20.2mm bore. If I'm still looking when I visit Savannah later this Spring I may consider your Kaiser or the nearly new 683 offered in PM.

Meanwhile, still hoping for an older hand built Cerveny CBB-483/683/*83
