Wisemann 900 SOLD

Hello, for sale is my Wisemann C900 tuba, 5/4 size, pitched in CC, 4 piston + 1 rotary, the brass/lacquered model. In the year or so that I've owned it, I've shifted my focus almost entirely to bass, so it's time to let her go. This is a really amazing instrument for its price, and is at least as good at the PT6P its based on. It has a big sound, good intonation, and in my experience is a breeze to play for its size.

There are a couple of little abrasions, but nothing substantial enough to call a dent (and everything is pictured). The leadpipe and thumb ring are corresponding parts from the PT6P - the old leadpipe was developing red rot and the thumb ring was not used by the previous owner, and he couldn't find it when he sold it to me. The new gold brass leadpipe had to be modified to fit right, but the work was done well and it still plays just as great as it ever has.

This includes the original "hard" case, which is pretty functional (but oddly doesn't fit great) and a great Cronkhite gig bag. I am located in the San Fransisco Bay area and would prefer not to ship... but if you want to pay for it I suppose I'm open to it. Looking for a flexible $5000.
Thanks for reading!
Joseph

Bump again. OBO is a key word because you have zero competition so far :')

One of the pictures seems to hint that the mouthpipe tube might be made of 80:20 (high copper) alloy brass. If “yes“, that would be a plus. If not, regular 70:30 would not be a negative.

Yep, that's right. The original was oxidized/corroded when I bought it - I think I mentioned it in the post - and I've heard from others that the stock leadpipes on the wisemann tend to do that. It hadn't leaked or broken, but the previous owner already had the replacement part on order, so he gave it to me a couple months later when it came in.

Additionally, the tuba is now on hold for sale - I'll update if it is back on the market, or delete when it is sold.
