This was my tuba for my final rounds through my undergraduate degree. I used it to place into the top orchestral spot in school, and had a blast playing this horn on Planets and Pictures.

Pros: The valves hold up to the B+M hype, and I would rate them alongside my Willson in speed and comfort. Ken Skitch added in lighter valve springs last year, and have noticed no downsides.

This horn sounds big (not a 5/4, but a larger 4/4 with a 22´ bell.) The sounds is round and dark, and doesn't break easily in higher registers, and I can cleanly play the f above the staff on it. Marty Erickson played a beautiful triple c on it for me. Low E, Eb and D are all easy to play with or without the trigger, and I tend not to use the trigger unless I am playing a low Db.
Marzan tuning system: You're always in tune! The most I move the slide is about an inch and a half in for pedal f when finger 4 and 3.
Cons: first line f and d in the staff tend to be a little flat. This was never noticable when playing in tuba yoof ensemble or band, but was something I dealt with when playing orchestrally. This problem was most pronounced when using the 33.3 blokepiece, but easy to manage with the 32.6. And it is, after all, a tune on the fly system, so no need to use alternate fingerings if you dont want to. Otherwise, one and three work great.
This horn is perfect for someone going in to college, or looking for a horn for their community ensemble. For the moment, pictures will live in the facebook group "Tuba/Euphonium Marketplace"
Located in Grand Rapids, MI
$4200 OBO. I'm willing to drive anywhere in the LP to sell, as well as Chicago
