Rudy 5/4 CC for sale

Postby conrak17 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 9:49 pm

It is with great sadness that I am posting my Rudy for sale. This horn has served me well but it is time to get something a little different and I can't warrant a second contrabass. Horn is located in Boston, MA and comes with a red leather Cronkite bag. I might also be willing to sell a custom Unitec flight case with the horn at an additional cost. PM me for questions and offers.

That new 5th valve wrap is wild! What's the story there?

Also, what are you trying to get in a trade?

Thanks for your response. The 5th valve was originally straight so a previous owner had Norm Epley create this configuration.

I am 99.7 % certain that this is my old Rudy 5/4 CC...I sold it to Norm....and I really, really miss it ! Fortunately I have a much newer red Rudy 3/4 CC now that is an amazing all around instrument and I'm over-the-moon in love with it. Make no mistake, this is a great example of the Rudy 5/4 CC and I'd buy it back in a hot second if my finances (and my wife) allowed. I'm pretty sure the 2nd valve slide kicker has been removed but ,while nice to have, the horn can be played perfectly in tune without it. I did have the 5th valve slide straightened years ago and I liked the result, but Norm's circular wrap is beautiful. Once, in a performance of Death and Transfiguration, I was so entranced by the beauty of the sound coming out of this horn that I almost forgot to change to a G in the next bar. Awesome in Prokofiev !
