Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Bach is well known for uneven quality. If your trumpet is in excellent condition, both cosmetically and functionally, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value of is approximately $2,000. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $800, depending on location and actual condition.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
