Found a horn. Thank you everyone!

Postby Basement » Sun Aug 20, 2017 2:12 pm

Looking for my first personal horn for college, budget is shy of $5k
I've looked all around and I'm still not sure what would be a "good deal" and what isn't.
Hoping someone can lend a helping hand.

I am selling my John Packer CC tuba. It would be a great horn for college!

Maybe schedule a lesson with a local college tuba professor / teacher / pro that does private lessons in your area and see if they can provide you some specific feedback. They may have a good lead in your area to a nice horn.
