WTB: CC tuba

Postby Miguel Jimenez » Sat Mar 21, 2020 9:40 pm

I am in need of a CC tuba. I'm a senior in high school and I'm going to major in music but I need to purchase a CC tuba. My price range is up to $8,500 but I'm willing to go up to $9,000 if necessary. It'd be great if you guys could recommend some horns to buy or if you guys could sell me yours! I live in Anaheim, CA. Also I won't need the horn until I start college in August. I apologize if you're trying to get rid of your horn right away. I'm simply trying to get a head start on looking into a horn.

that's a very healthy budget. What part of the country are you in? It's always nice to be able to play a horn in person when shopping

Ted Cox is selling his 5/4 Rudy Meinl CC that has had some fantastic work done on it by Martin Wilk. He is asking $9,000 for what appears to be a fantastic instrument

I have an awesome Miraphone four rotor 84CC for sale well within your budget. Includes a case.

I am looking, preferably, for a B&S CC tuba, a Miraphone CC tuba, a Meinl Weston CC tuba, a Grontiz CC tuba, or an Eastman CC tuba. However, I'm still open to other horns.

This one is sure tempting me. Get that so I don't have to worry about it.

Once you are ready to buy a horn, you will get pore peretinent information.

If you buy an instrument without asking the opinion of the teacher at the college you will attend, it will be a disservice to your relationship with that teacher.

It might stretch you budget a tad, but I would take a serious look at the Eastman 832 (not the 6/4 836). For probably less money, consider the Wessex "Wyvern". Used tuba? . . . try them first. Scott Sutherland is down the road from you (towards San Diego). You might enlist his help. He's an Eastman guy.

Why don’t you go over to The Horn Guys and play test some tubas? They might have something that would fit your budget, but you could certainly get a few ideas on what works and what doesn’t.

According to their "daily menu", the lowest priced CC tuba that Steve Ferguson has (Horn Guys) is the Miraphone 1293. It's still a ways beyond Mr. Jimenez's budget. Also, I don't think the shop is open for play testing at this time. For new CC tubas within that budget, I still think the Wessex "Wyvern" and the Eastman 832 are worth taking a look at.

I wish I could afford/justify walking into The Horn Guys and walk out with their B&S "MRP".
