Melton 200 Spezial for sale. Pricedrop!

Postby Lars Trawen » Sun Jul 30, 2017 1:48 pm

Hi all tuba lovers.
This is to put up my tuba for sale.
I'm now 74 years old and got arthrosis in knees and hips.
The tuba has been too heavy for me to haul around.
I intend to buy a smaller one, more handsome.
It's a Melton 200 Spezial.
What Spezial stands for I don't know.
However, it's equipped with a second valve trigger and a spit valve on the forth valve tubing.
That's not standard. It also has a Kranz around the bell.
My avatar shows it in use.
The tuba was bought brand new directly from Melton's factory in Geretsried 1996.
It's still in very good shape as you can see on the pictures.
It has no dents, only some small dings and scratches that not affect the sound.
Unfortunately only three pictures are allowed to show. I've more if you are interested.
A Winter hardcase is included that fits perfectly.
The case has been used for all storing and transportation through the years.
The case is still in very good condition.
All valves move smoothly and quietly. The slides are easily accessible and move freely.
It's a true German Kaiser Tuba, of course in BBb, with a wonderful sound.
I've ben praised from many of my colleagues for that.
It's 1.140 mm tall, the bell is 500 mm diameter and the bore is 21,5 mm.
An original Melton mouthpiece is included.
I'm asking for 7.500 € or best offer.
Buyer pays the freight. It will be well packed.
It's located in Portugal.
Good luck,
Lars

That's a real beauty, and I'm sure it plays as well as it looks. For those of us who aren't familiar with the 200, is it in BBb or CC?

Definitely BBb.

And for the Americans... this is about 44.9" tall, bell about 19.7", and bore 0.846". This is a BIG tuba. :shock: :tuba:
