FOR SALE: Gronitz PCK w/ softcase
This has been my main CC tuba since I purchased it in the Fall of 2007 from Fort Worth Symphony Principal Tubist, Ed Jones. (Hi, Ed!) It has served me very well. Great tone with an easy and full low register. Fast and smooth 1st and 3rd slides for easy fine tuning. I've played a lot of PCK's, this is still my favorite of them all. Includes a nearly new Blue/Black Cronkhite Case. I'm happy to answer questions, supply recordings, schedule a play test, etc...
Serious inquires only please. Pictures upon request as I cannot recall how to post them here. lol. This instrument can also be found for sale with pics on the Facebook Tuba Euphonium Marketplace and you can find videos/pictures on my Instagram account: TubaLifeLA

Unsolicited bump: This is a particularly excellent playing example of a PCK. I can vouch for that.

That’s the link to what looks to be the appropriate post.
