B&S Symphonie F-Tuba with Miraphone 185 Bell

Postby wintertuba » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:55 am

I am Selling my B&S Symphonie F-tuba. This particular horn has a bit of a back story on how it got its bell. The first owner was Don Messerschmidt. He had a miraphone 185 bell installed in the mid 1980's by master repairman Dan Rausch. The idea came from Tommy Johnson who had this done to his own horn first. Both Don Messerschmidt and Norm Pearson liked the way Tommy's tuba played, so they had it done to their Symphonies.
Since then, this tuba has belonged to two other owners, John Van Houten, and one of his previous students Justin Jerome. I am the fourth owner and really enjoyed having this unique tuba.

The tuba is Silver plated, with two-step 5th valve and comes with a black cordura Cronkhite case.

I am located in Long Beach, California and am asking for $6,000.

Bump for a really great f tuba. With the Mirafone 185 bell the tuba really lights up and it projects like crazy!
I would buy it myself but I've got way too many tubas.
