Is the bell rim taco-ed? Why is he holding it in place with his shoe? Or is he just this careless?

Maybe he's worried about it tipping over? Pics of the bell look okay.

No connection to the seller other than having played this instrument, but I can say it's a fine example. Somebody will be pleased.

horns like the Yamaha 641 tend to tip real easy, and since this one is set on a blanket it probably needs to be stabilized a bit better.
But you knew that already.

Yeah, but for a poser shot? And that bell photo does not show whether the rim is bent. You cannot see that from straight into the bell, only from straight along the side.

I am not saying it is taco-ed. I am saying it is a terrible photo that harms the advert. It would not fall over in the time it took them to squeeze off that pic. No way. If his foot needs to be there the rim is not flat, or, again, he is just that much of an oaf for having his foot on the bell.

One of my favorite BBb tubas :tuba: Looks like the bell was smoothed out at one time, and the tuba looks in overall very good condition.
He has a good price on it, including the soft and hard cases. :!:

It looks to me like it was stood on it's bell on a concrete floor and turned repeatedly without lifting it from the concrete.
Wade, I think you're right. The wear on the bell rim isn't even.
