WTT Alex/Miraphone F tuba for Piston F or Eb

Postby BBruce107 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:43 am

Hi all I have a Alex/Miraphone franken F tuba with five rotors that I am looking to switch for a piston valve F tuba or Eb tuba. I am interested in the Big Mouth Brass F with the larger bell, Big Mouth Brass Eb, or similar horns. The horn is definetly a German style tuba and has the characteristic low register for rotary F tubas. The horn plays very in tune and is very nimble. Shoot me a message for more details and offers! I am located in Alma Michigan

Of course you know that Alexander and Miraphone are two wholly separate companies whose tubas are very different from one another. What exactly do you have. No one will buy anything from you with a description as vague and confusing as what you have here. Posting photos IN THE AD will help you sell your tuba by allowing the rest of us to figure out what it is that you are selling.

It is an Alex or is it a Miraphone? And which model number of that brand? Or is this a homemade hybrid Frankentuba using Alex and Miraphone parts? No one can tell based on what your wrote here.

Please make more of an effort and some of us will try to help you get your ad straight enough so that you can sell your tuba.

Best of luck!

Link works, but I see this:

"This folder is empty"

Is this the Alex/Miraphone that Norm Eppley built several years ago?

Huh pictures must not have been uploaded properly. I am not sure who did the work. I can email pictures to whoever wants them.
