First of all, yes there is a new website. Same address but leave off the "https:". I don't know why but that is what I have to do myself.

Now about used tubas:

Their used offerings have been declining in number for some months, not sure if it's supply/demand or a conscious choice to limit them.

Dillon Music is always looking for good trade-ins that we can re-sale at a profit with a quick enough turnover. We've been selling used tubas and euphoniums like crazy. That said, we don't have the space for overpriced oddballs to hog precious floor space that could be used selling something else. We'll also sell your horn on consignment if it is priced right. Sometimes I do say no to a consignment or trade-in when someone wants too much for their "Swinette" they paid a fortune for. But otherwise I do all I can to make a deal work for both parties.

Send me pictures and prices of what you want for your good used horns. The worse I can say is no, or counter offer. Send them to: matt at dillonmusic dot com

From the person who started this thread I am thrilled that I was able to order a great mouthpiece at a really good price. Thanks Matt.I will let you know when it arrives. Great website, really easy to navigate. It is amazing how these threads can turn into something other than what was originally intended.

Thanks for the authoritative update, and sorry to contribute so much speculation here.

Matt and Steve are (surely...??) the same as anyone who isn't dumb:

They don't want their precious space to be cluttered with unsellable/overpriced "curiosities", and neither do they wish to receive daily phone calls/emails from the owners of those "curiosities" asking whether it sold today.
