WTB Marzan Bb

Postby dantetuba » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:21 pm

Hello guys,

Now its time to buy my double bass tuba.
I researched a lot to know what's a good deal to e my double bass and I decided to buy a Marzan because it's a solid horn and I saw that the Bb version it's a little large than the CC and plays better.
There is a lot of good Bb tubas out there but I would like to but it.
If you know someone or know where they are selling please let me know.

Thanks for help me

Greetings from Brazil :tuba:

Dante, Dan S. has a nice Marzan BBb for sale for $3,500US. I believe this to be the tuba I played when he visited Mississippi years ago. If so it is a gem. If not then I am sure it is still a very good horn.

The BBb is only marginally larger, like an inch taller, maybe, but it plays somewhat better and easier than the CC version. I believe all the research went into the BBb horn and the CC is simply a cut-down version, much like the Alexander 163 is the horn that was designed, and the CC was simply chopped from that.

Good luck!

Come on, folks: It's 2018! HTTP and HTML have been around since 1989 and BBCode has been in use since about 1999. Posting photos is not difficult and never has been. Figure it out. You’re making poor Tim Berners-Lee cry.
