CC Holton 345 SOLD

Postby joshealejo » Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:02 pm

Hello dear friends!

I am selling my raw brass CC Holton 345. This tuba was made by Holton parts long time ago.

Holton 6/4
4 pistons and 1 rotor
Height: 94cm / 37inch
Bell: 54cm / 21 inches
Bore: 1.93cm / 0.756 inches
The bell is Kanstul.

The 4 pistons are vented and I putted the Yamaha euphonium springs on It, so the action is really light, I also feel that the pistons are more shoter action than the Meinl Weston pistons I have tryed. The slides has been aligned.

No mayor dents, but some little over the body (I can send better pictures from if requiered)

Tuba plays great, very broad big sound, low register sounds like a sub woofer but It is not easy to overblow. I have been told that sound is very comparable to MW 2165, but as I have never tested one, I can not assure that statement but yes, IT SOUNDS BIG. Intonation is like other tubas of this size, requieres some pulling but nothing you can not resolve.

Price for HOLTON 345 and Wilson Flight case (excelent shape) PM or email me(better) at verita30_11(at)yahoo(dot)es

Tuba is located in North Lauderdale FL and It is ready for shpipping or pick up!

Here are some horn porn for you:

A quick bump for my friend in Peru -- great looking tuba! That detachable bell seems like a nice convenience on a tuba of this size!

The M-W 2165 was designed with a Holton 345 as the guide. A tuba player was having his horn cosmetically overhauled and M-W asked permission to take measurements for their BAT design. So, yeah, they sound alike in many ways. They don't play alike.

I was allowed to read some of the paperwork on that after this person moved to his current home. Interesting stuff, to say the least.

I have both horns and they do sport some solid similarities, but the bells produce a different tone (wall thickness?) and they respond very differently. Once the inner branches were lengthened to remove the 5th and 6th branches the 2165 became a *completely* different instrument from the 345.

They both have their strengths and weaknesses, to be sure.

BUMP for Jose's tuba... :tuba:

This is a great instrument for anyone looking for a low cost 6/4. This tuba will hold any orchestra or band.
