I am selling my own superb lightly used Big Mouth Brass (BMB) Silver plated 18” bell, .730/.750 bore J445SP F tuba. 4 stainless steel pistons, 1 rotor. Some modifications done include: slides taken apart and aligned with internal camera, all four pistons vented, receiver gap adjusted to 3/8” , pistons ultra sonic cleaned, horn chem cleaned, new heavier piston springs added, etc. Horn in great condition, very even in all ranges, low and high ranges amazing, intonation superb. You can play EVERYTHING ( orchestral, quintet, chamber, solos) on this horn.
Includes a gig bag with back pack straps, a Helleberg mthpce, and a repaired modified MTS style hard case ( new handle, new locking latch, etc.) with wheels.
Horn is near Buffalo. Not interested in trades.



SOLD!!Price for everything is $3,795 plus shipping via Greyhound....HOWEVER I much prefer to hook up and have you play test/ purchase the instrument. I can drive a few hours to hook up, or you come by and play/buy and I’ll buy the chicken wings!!

Please email me directly ( No PM email please) at:
Hamburg, NY

PS. HOWEVER, I still have available a ‘demo’ show horn here at the house for sale—only used for display/shows—Big Mouth Brass 16” bell lacquered J445LQ16 F Tuba here at my house....truly like new condition. Superb player, with new Helleberg mthpce, gig bag, and MTS style hard case-$3,695 plus $200 shipping firm ( or come try and buy). Can’t go wrong on this horn at all. I’ve added heavier springs, and all slides are like butter...silky smooth.
