Seller also has 2 others which i'm too lazy to link or picture. Hence the plural subject.
Thanks for playing!

10 J's have a great sound for their size.

I had a 10J that was given to me. It was in playing condition, but had a previously hard life as a school instrument. Even so, I really liked it. Easy to play and a really nice sound. False/privileged tones were pretty easy, too. A local guy wanted to get back into playing (strictly as a fun hobby), but couldn't pull the trigger on a $XXXX instrument, so I surprised him and gave him mine and told him to be blessed. He loves it, and I'm glad (these are good small tubas, IMHO), but ads like this make me want to get another one. For $350, and someone to do a little dent ball work on this, it might be worth having.
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.

It might play pretty well without even the dent ball work. Stuff you can't see is what I'd be worried about, but that's always true for ebay horns, and for $350, wouldn't be awful worried. I see same outfit has a 4V big Reynolds with an upright bell, for close to $1K, also looks like a "fire sale" on a high school band room instrument.

Agreed 10J's are excellent small horns. I bought one on eBay a few years ago for $200 and the ad said it was unplayable but everything seemed to be there. When it arrived I saw it had is fair share of dents but It played great as is! I made a recording of it playing a duet I wrote. Here it is. Sweet little horns!

I bought the 4V Reynolds. Well see what its like when it gets here. Didn't look horrible in the pics. Plan on rolling out the dents whit my dentball set and going from there. have been wanting one of those old stovepipes for a long time but most i found were beat to #$%@. If anyone is looking I have a couple of cleaned up 10J's I have a couple on the Ft. Myers FL Craigslist. Not beautiful but play well.
