Lacquer finish. 4 Pistons/1 Rotor. Normal cosmetic wear (slight pitting on lead pipe).
I have played this tuba in the King's Brass, Dominion Brass, Eurobrass, and the Capital Wind Symphony. I bought it from Andy Carlson of the U.S. Navy Band. I tested other brand new Willsons and didn't really like them, but this one had me sold from the first note. I'm sorry to give up the big sound of this big horn, but I need something smaller now.
I might be willing sell a custom Walt Johnson flight case with the horn. Price on the case is negotiable. I paid about $900 for it and it is as solid as ever.
