  6. I am looking to buy a trumpet for my soon to be 7th grader. Also would be interested in a alto sax for my soon to be 10th grader. You can contact me by email Thanks!

  7. It is a lightly used, Selmer 80 Super Action Serie II Tenor Sax. It was used for roughly eight months, three of which included marching band. It is in very good condition. I also have two neck straps, a box of unused reeds, two reed holders, as well as cleaners and a music stand if you are interested. Additionally, there is a saxophone stand that is pictured in the second image. Though I am looking to sell it for around $2500 as it is a fantastic instrument, I am willing to haggle slightly.

  8. I no longer need a trumpet or sax. I can’t see how to delete my previous post. Thanks! -Ruth Gelsey

  9. Hello Ruth,

    You are correct. The way our site is setup does not allow for deletion of posts by members. You have done it appropriately, that is, just repost to let people know that you no longer need the item.
