Rudy Meinl CC 4/4 5V Tuba w/ PT-88 MP & soft case

Postby Oskee09 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 5:44 pm

-4/4 Rudolf Meinl CC 5-valve tuba (4/4 Rudys are more like 5/4 in most other brands...18" bell & .768 bore)
-Manufactured circa early 1980's
-Professionally cleaned and had bell dents repaired on 7/30/17 (can provide invoice if interested)
-Located in Nashville, TN
-Comes with PT-88 mouthpiece and soft case

Although the horn isn't cosmetically perfect, its sound has definitely held up. Powerful & focused tone for loud dynamics in orchestral and wind ensemble playing, but has good control for smaller ensemble playing in both low and high ranges. Unlacquered and still has minor dents, but none that would negatively impact intonation. Solid, versatile horn: An oldie but a goodie :)

Price: $5250

Looks awesome!

Has it always been raw brass, or wad the lacquer stripped at some point?

I wish I knew the full history, but it was raw when I bought it back in 2009 and the previous owner said that he bought it that way back when I made my purchase.

Does that tuba have a patch on the bell rim?

PRICE UPDATE! Re: Rudy Meinl CC 4/4 5V Tuba

Postby Oskee09 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 5:51 pm

Now only $4500 for a great horn! The only catch is that you must be able to pick it up from Nashville.

I'm pretty sure I owned that tuba for several years. It belonged to David Graves and Bloke 3 times before me. It has had a few owners since i sold it as I've seen it for sale before. I found it to be a good instrument and I was lucky to have it.

Is the horn still available and would you be willing to send it via greyhound? I’m in Baltimore.
