FS: HB2

Postby Henry Gertcher » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:52 pm

I have decided to post my HB2 for sale. I just moved to Ohio and have bills that need paying. I have played this horn in many ensembles from concert bands to orchestras. It is a great all around player. The serial number is 7827 which means this horn was made in 1978. For a horn of 33 years it is in good shape. I will include both an Alteri gig bag and a hard case with wheels. For now I have a pic of the horn and the gig bag. I will try to add more detailed pics tomorrow.

Asking price for the horn, gig bag and case is $7,500. PM or email at henrygertcher@gmail.com" target="_blank if you are interested.

Edited pictures to add a smaller pic of the gig bag.

Bump because the last buyer fell through. Plus I have a pic of the horn now nice and shiny.

Is it just me or does any one else get a sick sense of pleasure after polishing a tuba? I hate starting but once I get going I don't want to stop until I am done.

It looks great shined up. Do you know if that is Scott Watson's old horn, originally owned by Sam Green?

Tom,

I am not sure. I acquired this tuba about 7 years ago from a guy on the forum. His name is Justin Beish. I had his story but must have deleted the email and can't find it. I traded a PT 6PS for the horn and can tell you that the HB 2 was made in 1978. The fifth valve slide is straight which is not the norm for the HB 2 or the age of it so I am guessing that it was straightened. However the job was done very well and it doesn't show. The valves are solid metal as there was a switch in the 80's to plastic core valves. The only work I have had done to the horn was to have the mouthpipe gap adjusted at Dillon's.

Aside from that I can't add much. If anyone else can chime in feel free.

Scott's was a great horn. I never met an HB2 that I didn't like.
