Don't let her watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. She might get ideas.

Sad part is that it wasn't just me - it was all of the faculty.  One of the school's unofficial mottoes was "Achieve the Honorable."  I guess the board - all of whom are alumni - slept through that day.

Very sorry to hear that. Strange.... musicians are normally treated so well  Evil Evil Evil
Know how you feel,

On May 31, the college where I have been teaching for the past two years was closed by the Board of Trustees.  They promised that they would pay out our contracts - my contract was for 11 months, but paid out over 12 months, so I had 3 more checks coming.

On Thursday, June 29, I was notified that they were not going to honor that
promise, so off we go into panic mode.

I have two bass trombone cases on eBay:
Altieri:

This is the big one - it will hold anything up to a 11" bell bass trombone, almost any wrap, etc.  The side pocket will hold mouthpieces, mutes, a tux, maintenance tools, books, etc.  The backpack straps are in unused condition, no shoulder strap (didn't have one when I bought it, and the one I used has been transferred to my new case). $100, and I'll pay up to $25 of the shipping cost and provide the box.New retail is around $240.

Edwards wood bass trombone case
This is the standard light brown tweed case that shipped with Edwards bass trombones for years.  It is big and heavy, and incredibly protective of the instrument.  The leather edge trim on the outside has seen far better days - I have glued most of it back in place, but if I were to keep it, I would cover it with gaffer's tape.  The latches and hinges work flawlessly, and the inside material is in excellent condition.  The leather handle has a crack, but still works.

$85, and I'll pay up to $25 of the shipping cost and provide the box.

There are a plethora of factors that go into the price of a used instrument, even a mint condition one.

For example, "new retail price" varies significantly from local retailers to online retailers.  As of today, MSRP on the King 2102L Jiggs Whigham model is $3241.  Average retail from a local "mom and pop" store would be around $2500 to $2700, and the average online retail price would be around $1900 to $2100.  The "big box" online retailers receive both a greater discount on the price of the instrument than the mom and pop stores because they buy in greater quantity.  They also take a lower profit on every sale, making it up in volume of sales.

With that said, the market for the Jiggs model instrument is narrower than, say, a Bach 42.  That doesn't mean you won't get a good price, you'll just have to wait for the right buyer.

Odds are your top dollar would be around $1400 if you're lucky.  Now the upside is that there aren't many of the 2B Jiggs Whigham's sitting on shelves, so if someone wants one, you'll have the right deal.

There's two on eBay right now - one at $1599 opening bid, the other at $695 opening bid with a $1100 "Buy it Now" price.  Two have sold in the past two months, one for $586 and the other for $1399.99.

Of course, your mileage may vary, but this is what I've seen in the 16 years I've been managing the Online Trombone Classifieds and working in music retail.

I have a Protec bass case and have been using it with my Bach/Greenhoe for over a year with no problems.  Their quality has improved greatly. 

HOWEVER I don't believe I would feel comfortable checking it as baggage with an airline.  While it's protective of the instrument, it's definitely not a hard case.

Uh, I know it's kind of gross, but urine will cause brass to tarnish quickly.  Works on any metallic compound containing copper.

Ever seen someone get brand new "old" looking copper flashings on a house?  That's how they do it.

Yeah, I know.

Wear gloves.
