This Blessing B88 two tone f trigger trombone is in excellent condition! It looks fantastic with the rose bell and has 95%+ of its finish still. There are hardly any dents or signs of wear on the horn. Any dents that are in the horn are so minor that you can hardly see them but it is worth mentioning that there are some extremely small dents. Please see pictures. The slide is super smooth and quick! The serial number is “518290”. The engraving on the bell reads “Blessing USA” and “B-88” on the bell to body brace. It comes in the original case which is still in very good condition. No mouthpiece is included. What a horn! This trombone plays great and has a beautiful sound that is nice and warm. This is a pro line horn that plays as beautifully as it looks!
