WTB: MW6450 Valve springs

Hello everyone if you have any MW 6450 Springs that you arent using I'd be happy to take them off your hands. I acquired one with Yamaha springs. Thank you in advance.

I think these are the same as what comes in *any* of the many, many different tubas that use the "Big Valve" piston set. These should be available from any place that works on or sells these tubas regularly. I would give Dillon Music (in New Jersey) a call and ask to speak to Matt Walters. He can tell you what you need, and may have a set in stock for you to purchase.

Good luck.

If you want stiffer springs - but have trouble obtaining the specific ones you're seeking - you might try some King sousaphone springs or Besson (designed for massive compensating pistons) springs.
Allied Supply carries both. Of course, your Conn-Selmer dealer can get the King springs from Conn-Selmer.
Size-wise, I'm thinking that either of those are roughly the same size as Yamaha and the German springs (compared to Conn 20K springs...which are far too large).
