Meine Weston 33 CC sold pending funds

Postby tubadoctor » Mon May 21, 2018 5:45 am

Good Morning all!
I'm reposting the Meinl 33 CC that was recently up for sale. TJ traded it to me a few weeks ago. It had quite a few small leaks and a few other issues. I've gotten it back together and gave the horn an ultrasonic cleaning. I understand why he had a low price before. There was quite a bit of airiness and lack response before with all the leaks. This horn plays much, much nicer now!! I'd flip flopped for weeks on making it my main all-around horn, but I switched to BBb and Eb a few years ago, and just don't have the time to devote to maintaining CC gig-ready fingerings on top of those two. That, plus my recent decision to pick up an upgraded quintet horn has led me to resist this horn.

Price will now be $3500. If you'd like to make an offer please do so. I doubt you'll find more horn for that price without looking at clones/Chinese made horns. I'm sure they play great, but I also know that if you are looking for a name brand 4/4 five valve CC you'll want to check out this one... I'm located about an hour north of NYC. If you'd like to meet up to play we can work that out. I'd rather not ship her all over the country for trials, but I do have boxes and a greyhound station close by I could use to to ship. Horn will come with an Altieri Gig bag that came along... It's a bit too big and doesn't have the top bell cover, but it still checks the box of moving it easily on your back... I may have a hard case that fits somewhere in my storage unit, so if that is of interest or tips the scales in favor of driving here let me know.

I'll post the link to the original photos. If those go down I'll set up a photo page on my own soon. Thanks!

Shane

I've seen this horn before. Are you sure it's not a MW33? If I remember, those are the detachable bell models. Someone confirm?

30 = 4 valves, fixed bell
31 = 4 valves, detachable bell
32 = 5 valves, fixed bell
33 = 5 valves, detachable bell

The "Bill Bell" model is:
35 = 4 valves
37 = 5 valves

I'm not sure if they started a new model number for the fixed/detachable varieties of the Bill Bell model...

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the detachable bell on these is primarily for easier transportation; they didn't make recording bells for these... right?

Either way, this is a nice looking, solid tuba. If it's in good mechanical shape with no leaks, it should be a really great player.

If I hadn’t bought MW30 this year, I’d consider.
