Sell and Buy equipment not on eBay
Moderator: Uber Moderators
I'm packing up and heading off to college, and my new professor has told me he wants me on a bass horn. I'm looking for something similar to the besson 983 or yamaha 621. He said it has to be front action, and that's really the only requirement. It'll be used mostly for chamber playing and solos.
The one catch is that I need to be able to make payments on it. Money is super tight(of course) and there's just no way I can come up with all of it at once before this fall. If you'd like to help me out, please let me know.

While it would be the most beneficial to get used to your incoming F/Eb over the summer, it seems you might not have enough $$$ for the horn that YOU want.
What is the horn YOU want? How many F/Eb's have YOU played on? Don't settle for a horn YOU don't really want, but bought because you HAD to get something. Don't rush this!!!
Working and saving during summer (along with the $$$ you already have), will bring you closer to your goal of getting the horn YOU want.
Regardless, you will have auditions for band/orch probably in late August at your new school, and that's about the time student loans are mailed (use sparingly)...
Practice the audition music, use your current horn, and and play your best. Then, after the dust settles, take your $$$ and get the horn YOU want.
Think long term.

I'd consider the 2145 to be a CONTRABASS tuba. The OP is looking for a BASS tuba.
I'm curious, why did the professor stipulate that it has to be front action? Not trying to criticize or troll, I'm honestly interested to know the reasoning behind that spec.
