Thanks to Robert, John and Dave for their helpful replies about my double-bell

If Dave is right about the $ value... yikes!!  Suffice it to say I got it for

I am a musical youth of a very young age.  I wonder what instruments I might
be able to buy in the $200 to $500 range.  I love contrabass instruments ,
but the closest I have is an electric bass guitar unfortunately, although I
will be getting an upright quite soon.  Also, if anyone knows of contrabass
ensembles in Seattle please let me know.

First of all sorry for sending four of the same message, I got lag and hit
the button repeatedly.

It would be great to find another rare instruments fanatic in Seattle,
someone send an email about it. I have been thinking of taking up brass, and
I like the sound of these double belled Euphoniums, where do I go to get one.

Send emails about good deals if you can find them, I don't have a lot of
money but I like the instruments so much.
