FOR SALE: BESSON 995 4/4 CC TUBA

I am selling my Besson 995 CC tuba. I am asking $8000 or best offer. This includes the horn, a custom-fit Altieri gig bag, and a form-fitting wooden hard case. The horn is currently located in Los Angeles.

The Besson 995 was designed by Walter Nirschl – it is very similar to 4/4 Nirschl CC tuba. This is a great 4/4 horn that could be used for many different gigs/ensembles! Here is a video of it in action…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw1gLsPmfbw

The horn is in great condition. It’s been recently cleaned and plays great! There are a few small dents on the bow near the 4th valve slide and a couple tiny dings in the bell. The Altieri case is in excellent condition. The hard case works but is well-worn from travel.

If interested, please email andy@theabels.org" target="_blank" target="_blank.

Hi Andrew,

Fantastic playing! I found myself wanting to watch the entire video until the end! Very convincing playing and interesting to the listener!

Is this one of the newer ones (made in Germany) or one of the older ones (made in England)?

Thank you Mike!

About the horn...I'm actually not sure. I bought it new at Dillon Music in 2012 if that helps.

I picked this instrument out personally for Andy when he was my student in Seattle. It’s a great example of this model and Andy is a great young man to work with. Buy with confidence! GLWTS!

Link won’t load in YouTube.
All that, plus $8.00, will get you a venti at Starbucks.
Or in my case, a large can of Folgers.
