6/4 CC Mel Culbertson 5198 'Neptune'

For sale is my 6/4 Mel Culbertson 5198 'Neptune'. This is an excellent BIG CC tuba, very similar to the B&S PT-6p and PT-7p, however, the Neptune is beefed up with a larger bell and bottom bow. I've owned this tuba since 2010 and used it through two degrees.

I would also be interested in a trade for a piston Eb tuba (particularly a Besson 983 :twisted: )

Here's the horn in action: Alongside with Dr.Kleinsteuber's 6/4 Nirschl!

Asking: $7,500
Location: Tallahassee, Florida
Comes with a 1-year-old Altieri gig bag.

Thanks for the link. Sounds fantastic! Good luck with the sale.

Sidebar: The flute soloist must have broken lots of hearts.

BUMP!
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.

Great looking tuba!

Curious -- what is the rotary tuba in the section in that video?

Also, this tuba will be available for anyone to try out at SERTEC this week.
