A very good 4rv BBb for a steal of a price! Basically the "newer" 1990s-2000s version of the old B&S 101/'Sonora' tuba. :tuba:

This horn was listed yesterday for $1,200. Now it's $2900. Hopefully we didn't have any little singing birdies telling the guy he could get more money for this horn, which has been known to happen. If not, that is a huge price jump for no reason.

Guess I shoulda bought it yesterday before the price increase. Oh well...........

Seriously though, "Musica" made in East Germany? Is this legit or is it really just a Chinese instrument? I've never heard of Musica and a Google search turns up nothing.

It's a B&S all right. They were located in Markneukirchen, Sachsen (Saxony) in what was then East Germany. These were some of the more under-rated tubas out there.

Shameless plug: if you need a gig bag for this, here's one that will work well:
