FS/FT Wisemann 900

Postby cktuba » Mon Apr 03, 2017 9:58 am

I'm considering selling my Wisemann 900. To start off, I have a horn in mind I am trying to buy and to make a lateral move into that slightly smaller and lighter horn... I need to get $6100 out of mine. There is a significant price hike coming on the new Wisemann 900 horns, so that will impact the used market as well. The only horns that I'm interested in trading for (other than the one that I'm currently looking at) are a Kalison KAB77 or a Miraphone 1291. Comes with case and Protec C241 gig bag.

Well that's discouraging. :(

I don't own one of these, and don't plan to.
I like these a lot...but (I suppose) the scale tips 2% farther (to my tastes) towards the model I've chosen to own.
"Resale" with continental-Asia-made instruments, is a factor. That having been said, most of a widely-known perceived-to-be-Japanese manufacturer's instruments are made on the continent - in the same country as Wisemann. :|
Currently, I know of no one offering these Wisemann 900 tubas "new" in the USA, so "availability" (of a fine model of tuba) acts as a "counterweight" against "perception due to country of origin" - again, with most so-called "Japanese" instruments, these days, being not made in Japan.
The Wisemann 900 tubas are pricey (to dealers).
Resale issues ASIDE, (hypothetically...)
Were [1] I required to chose a blind-purchased Wisemann 900 or a blind-purchased PT-6P for my OWN use, [2] they cost the same, and [3] I was required to never sell the tuba I chose, I'd pick a Wisemann 900. Most of these (to my judgement) play better most PT-6P tubas (bloke says, as many - in particular, PT-6P owners - raise their eyebrows or bunch up their faces).

Horn Guys is currently offering these new. There was a brief period of time where they were unable to get them, but Steve placed an order for four brand new silver ones that should be arriving in the next few weeks.

There is an old joke about pork chops' pricing/availability...
Would you like me to tell it?
