These horns have gotten EXPENSIVE if you buy them new! They cost over $5000 these days. Save a LOAD of money by buying this used one and stop renting. This H180 has been stripped of it's lacquer, it's fixed bell and all original. The compression is great at 1.9 and it's been cleaned and is ready to go. Sure there are lots of dings, but nothing that detracts from how it plays. Also it comes with a nice gig bag that makes carrying it so much more comfortable.
