Almost new Miraphone 1292 SOLD!

Postby randy westmoreland » Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:51 am

I have a wonderful silver Miraphone 1292 CC tuba for sale. It was purchased last spring from WWBW, and aside from a couple of very small scratches on the bottom bow, is in perfect condition. Intonation is fantastic and the sound is full and even throughout all registers. If you have played a 1291 but not a 1292, they are miles apart. The 1292 focuses much better and is less, for lack of a better word, tubby sounding. The valves are fantastic, I have never felt better pistons. Do a search and you will find very few of these instruments have been offered for resale.

Price includes reunion blues gig bag

$8200 plus shipping, this is easily $2000 less than the price of a new one (new pricing $10,759).

If you also buy my York EEb, you can have both for 12,500 plus shipping!

I saw ghost riders in the sky, and they each played a York EEb tuba.

I don't have a problem doing some driving, within reason. Where are you located?

I sent you a pm, lets not clog up other sales, unless you have a public question.
