I do not have the case in the pictures anymore, and can take pictures the SBK385, Wessex Bag, and Wick pieces if people need me to.
Also, I have a folder with scans of the original brochure for this tuba for those that like that thing.

Long Story:

I have checked the serial number, I am pretty sure it is from 1982, and the local music store dealer that sold it then agrees with that date. I am the second owner, I have had it for 4 years. Horn is in great shape, and plays very well. It is small shank, so you need a "british shank' or the non L wick size mouthpieces which I will include. The horn plays very in tune, with no alternate fingerings for me. For those that know about a "fletcher cut", it has not been cut and plays up to 442 for me that way I play with a Wick 2.

I love this horn, but I do not play in a Brass Band anymore, and I need/want a Contrabass horn for the Concert Band playing I will be doing. I also have access to a great 15" bell version anytime I would like through work. I have a degree in tuba performace, but do not make any money playing tuba, I do that conducing thing now... So I cannot justify having more that one horn.

I would be interested in a trade for a large CC or BBb, must have 5 valves.
