In that case, I recommend keeping the Bundy as your marching horn. However,
after 7 years, it probably could use a little maintenance (a new pad here
and there, maybe some adjustment, etc). The Bundy is a fine student plastic
horn and is made by Selmer, one of the four major makers. You could
probably have a technician check it out and fix it up fairly inexpensively
unless it is in really bad shape. Seven years isn't that old unless it's
been really abused. A new plastic student horn through mail order
discount will be around $360 and almost twice that at many local retailers.
Yet if you try to sell yours, you will be lucky to even get $100.

Then with the money you save by putting a little maintenance in your Bundy
instead of buying a new marching horn you could buy some other goodies
(metronome, tuner, music, music software for your computer, etc).
