SOLD. Besson 983 with hard case, schlipf mute and gig bag

Postby Greg » Sun May 14, 2017 2:17 pm

I have decided to sell my silver Besson 983 Eb tuba. I will be including the original Besson hard case, a fitted Schlipf mute, and a Miraphone gig bag (fits like a glove!). This 983 is in great condition and plays very well. Great response in low, mid and upper register and superb intonation. I have used this tuba for professional work in numerous settings including: Brass band, Orchestra, band, quintet, and solo performances.

Here are quite a few pictures:

I am located near St Louis Mo and am willing to drive part way in order to deliver. I am asking $6200 for the tuba, hard case, gig bag and the practice mute.

Thanks,

I soooo miss my 983. I sold it because I needed the money at that time, but the long pistons also killed my hand. probably the fact that I played it vertically and not at an angle contributed to my hand problem. I'm back to rotors now, but this sure is tempting. These are great all around tubas with near 'point and shoot' intonation.

I play this one upright and don't have hand or wrist pain or soreness. I think this is the perfect bass tuba size for versatility of playing solo and in ensembles. I've made it a point to not play it again because I'm sure I would decide not to sell!

Would you be interested in selling the mute separately?
