Jinbao MiraClone 186, compare to a new one at , Jim Laabs $1985.00

This horn is USED! It has scratches and small dents. The most significant dent is on the bottom bow, and is seen in the pictures - you'll agree it is still relatively small. Recently, this horn was played everyday, and performed in Liberty University Symphony Orchestra. Some nickel plating has lifted (see the tape on the horn in the pictures). Some of the lifting is due to old small dents (top of the 5th valve slide crook, and bottom near the water key), but also one spot on the upper bow. Pick up is preferred. Shipping available, for cost of boxing and shipping.

Original foam case is included. Case wheels and handles are damaged. Case protects the instrument very well.

Listed on eBay today. I would like to sell it here on TubeNet so that I am not charged the eBay sales commission. Also I would really like the buyer to pick it up, so that I can deliver it in the excellent condition that it is in right now and not have fear that a carrier might damage it.

I wouldn't be comparing Nickel with silver, they are hugely different. Nickel is about the lowest cost finish you can put on a instrument, yes, less than lacquer because you dont have to buff prior to the nickel process. If you want a better price comp then it really should be compared with the cost of a lacquer instrument. good luck.
