FS/FT: Conn 24/25J $3500 or trade for EEb

Post by Dan Tuba »

I have a beautiful Conn 24/25J for sale. It comes with both the recording bell, and Kanstul upright bell. This tuba has been my main axe. It's in excellent playing condition, and great cosmetic condition, with only some minor "pings" in the upright bell. The lacquer is in excellent condition. The valves and slides are super smooth.

****I will not sell the upright bell separately****

The tuba doesn't come with cases, so local pickup is preferred (shipping is outrageous right now). The tuba is located in Clarksville TN. Payment via PayPal (Buyer must cover the fees).

If there are any Conn 2XJ fans out there, this is one of the best I have owned(I have owned a lot...I'm not kidding, I have a "thing" for these 🀷🀦) Don't miss out on your chance to own one that is a beautiful player and looker😜

The Kanstul upright bell really makes this tuba easier to carry around/fit in tight spaces, but yet, still offers that beautiful, phat, large Conn 6/4 string bass sound that you have been dreaming about... except with a little more punch and clarity πŸ˜‰

I won't even mention the "core" 😜

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the "F" is really close on this bad boyπŸ˜‰And if you are playing with musicians who haven't figured out how not to play their "F" twenty cents sharp, 1&3 centers very well on this 2XJ πŸ˜‚

Seriously though, this is a great tuba with both bells. I have really enjoyed it, but it's time for me to move on to something a little better suited for what I am doing these days... and to satisfy all those "your tuba faces the wrong direction folks" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Just kidding πŸ€¦πŸ˜‚
