The valve cluster, bottom bow, and leadpipe on this horn have just been professionally removed, rebuilt, and reinstalled. The horn's timbre fluoresces powerfully and it plays marvelously. A past owner removed the leadpipe's tuning slide and lengthened the main tuning slide. Once the brass is warmed up, the tuning is spot on, but if the horn's cold, it's flat, especially the third partial.

It comes with an Altieri soft case, Hetman's piston oil, and a DEG tuba stand, which makes the ergonomics nearly perfect. Pick-up only, no shipping. Located in Brooklyn.

Thanks Edsel!

I bought the Monster last January knowing that I would have to sell my Rudolf Meinl 3/4 CC tuba if I wanted to be able to afford to keep it. The Monster pairs great with my Conn 40k sousaphone, and it sounds awesome with a nu mouthpiece too, but I can't bring myself to give up the five rotary valves & 2nd valve kicker on my Rudy, so the Monster's gotta go.
