WTB: New Supply of Right Notes

Postby the elephant » Fri Nov 10, 2006 1:46 pm

I need to buy a bag of right notes. My supply is nearly exhausted and I only have wrong notes in reserve. (And after the last time I filled up my horn with wrong notes went over so poorly at work . . . uf, da!)

Anyone here have an XXL bag of right notes? I might even spring for an institutional sized box (XXXL or larger) if the quality is good. (No cracks or chips. And only 100% NOTES . . . NO CLAMS!)

Oh, and can anyone recommend a better method of loading right notes into my horns? Pouring them into the bell is messy and wasteful . . .

I have a fair number of right notes left, though there is some confusion as to whether or not left notes are right.

Let me check my stock and get right back to you.

Do you prefer silver or raw metal?

Silver is quite nice. But raw brass stays crunchy, even in milk.

Since I am left handed, left notes might work just as well. So right notes or left notes ought to be fine. Just no wrong notes, please.

Correct notes should be loaded one at a time through the mouthpiece. That is why so many professional level horns are large bore, in order to facilitate this process.

You should watch out for inferior mainland Chinese right notes which are flooding the market, currently. Remember that not only did Mrs. Mao forbid the tuba, but many of the available Chinese instruments use a pentatonic scale. Look what happened to Besson, for example...

I'll have to look up in the attic for what must be a huge crate of right notes as I've been using a great many of my wrong ones in their place.

Would you be interested in a few chipped notes? I may have a few of those left, though not many. I've been using up a lot of those on my quintet gigs.

After a look in my case I found a few that might be of interest:

4 Chipped notes, usual wear $45 each
14 Half notes - I haven't needed these since the last time I played Dvorak #9
12 Mis-pitched notes - $35 (though some may be higher and some slight lower)
4 rushed quarter notes - Well used for Berlioz's Hungarian March $15 each

I'll check the basement for those Respigi and Prokofiev notes I think I might still have.

The problem I seem to have is finding the right note at the right time! I usually get the wrong note at the right time, or the right note at the wrong time! Rarely get the right note at the right time! So, no, I don't have any right notes to spare, sorry! :?

I have four C notes slightly used. I'll be glad to sell them for $100 each. Buyer pays shipping.

I had some "rotary" right notes... but some prankster seems to have reversed the linkage. Now they come out as wrong notes when I press the valves. I'm actually thinking it might be cheaper to have the tuba re-wrapped like a horn, buy a large Mickey Mouse glove, and learn hand-stopping.

Just tell those notes to "talk to the hand!"

Here's what to do:
I will sell you a paper bag for $100.
Inhale through the bag, sucking all the air out. This is good-note-air.
Then proceed to blow through the tuba using the air inhaled from the bag.
I can provide additional bags at a bulk discount if desired.

Right whale notes can be had on youtube for the donwloading:

You get what you pay for, however, and there's no guarantee that these are actually Right Whale notes.

I thought I was using right notes, but they must be contaminated as the occasional wrong one pops out without warning.

I have a concert to play this wednesday, after that we'll be learning new music, so i won't need my right notes for a while, I'll loan them to you for a small fee......nota bene: these are old horn right notes, some will require some bending.

I hate to tell you, but conductors are thr ones that have all the right notes. Even when they're wrong. Or especially when they're wrong... :shock:

I have some...I've been trying to use them, but a lot of them have come out a little blatty and cracked.
Price is as follows:
$100 for Right notes
$200 for Left notes
Reason why Left notes are more expensive, is since they are left notes, and I'm right handed. Most horns are also for the right handed, and that will also make the notes more expensive.
The notes come in a bottle, which will look like Coka-Cola or Pepsi-Cola, because of their color. Also labled like that, only with the Right Notes or Left Notes on the bottle.
I think I might end up as a grumpy old man when I get old...

I have an extra large bag of right notes. Unfortunately, like a box of candy where you cherry pick your favorite ones I have used up all of the highly desirable ffff & fff Loud right notes.

So I only I have left the much less desirable soft notes which you are welcome to. However, we all know that all great tuba players only use loud notes and will even use a loud wrong note over a right soft note.

Good luck with your search as we all know how rare right loud notes are!
