WTB: 4/4 - 5/4 CC Tuba

Postby hkane8212 » Fri Aug 26, 2016 9:59 am

Hello all, I am a soon-to-be college student looking for my first horn to purchase. Below is the list of models/brands that I've limited my research to.

Miraphone 186, 188, 1291, 1292, 1293
Besson 995 (newer),
PT 6, PT 20.
Meinl Weston 2145, 2000.
Hirsbrunner HB2p,
Kalison Daryl Smith
Getzen G50 (Same as Canadian Brass CB50)

My budget for purchasing a horn is about $7,000-$10,000 but I am flexible. This is for anyone who has inquiries or comes across a horn on this list online. If you do want to sell one of these or come across one of these, PM me or comment a link below.

Thank you

There's a pretty new-looking used 186CC at BBC:

Two used Kalison Daryl Smith's at TubaExchange:

https://www.tubaexchange.com/collection ... c-4-4-tuba

Used 1291 at Horn Guys:
http://www.hornguys.com/collections/use ... er-plate-1

Used 1291 in the For Sale Section:

And you might want to check with Bloke to see if he still has that really nice 2155 for sale:

Best of luck. I can't guarantee that these are all still out there, but one of these should be a hit for you.

This Alexander is in your price range. You'll want to play-test it, but if you like it it will serve you well. We have three Alexanders in our section and we love them:

While this is not my tuba that I am selling, it is excellent deal and worth looking into. The website says 10,250, but he has agreed to go down to 9,000.
