Hi everyone,

I am helping Venezuelan tubist Pedro Vasquez sell both his F and C tubas (I'll make another post about his F shortly!). He is also selling it with the case pictured! I do not know much about the horns he has for sale, but if you like more information or are interested, please feel free to email me at lcd57@miami.edu" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank (or, if you feel that your Spanish is up to speed, shoot Pedro a text or call at 786-304-0853!). We are both based out of Miami just as an fyi!

Those are the short-lived Presto linkages. The idea is that you can individually adjust the tension of each valve. I don't think it wa s the greatest ideal Miraphone ever had... but, you can replace the linkages with the new (and IMO better) style.

Early to mid 90s. Rare to see one in silver!

I had one of these in the mid 90’s. It was all red brass. Played great and the most in tune tuba I ever owned. The novelty of the presto valves wore off quickly and my repair tech hated them.

Why have 3 valves when you can have 6 and a main tuning slide kicker???

by the way this is a great instrument, I've seem Pedro play it and sounds great on it, also he is very good at taking care of his instruments so I think besides the dents that you get by using the horn for MANY years this instrument is probably internally working better than many others.
