there is documentation, professional testimony, and visual evidence.One seller tenor saxophone, 1960s, playable and in great condition with mouthpiece.Yamaha trumpet and Bach flugelhorn Horn (1980s). The items alone would not be the sole aspects of their value; they have provenance, were used in historic recordings and worldwide performances . Original cases have been kept.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The flugelhorn horn is of a model now obsolete.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Their former owners were internationally renowned musical names, brands unto themselves.

Hello

You will need to take these to a Certified Appraiser in person so they can inspect the instruments, and documentation in order to grade the instruments in order to give you an appraisal. I can try to find a Musical Instrument Appraiser for you if you like?
