Hello all, 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 really an amazing instrument, most anyone will tell you the wisemann is one of the best tubas to ever come out of China, perhaps even more desirable than the B&S which it replicates (PT6P). I'm out of the loop on here, but it seems they aren't making them anymore either? Regardless, it is really an incredible value for the level it plays at. It has a great big sound, good intonation, and in my experience is a breeze to play for its size. There are a very small number of spots where the lacquer is damaged, but nothing substantial enough to call a dent (everything I could find 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 (original? I forget) 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. Along with the original chinese hard case (a little wear and tear, the wheels roll and it fits well) this includes a gorgeous chronkhite gig bag. Nearly all of you are familiar with these; needless to say they're really high quality, and not all cheap on their own. The bag is not a leather model, but its one of the slightly older ones (made by Glen, not just made by the company) and it is in great shape, fits the horn perfectly. I am located in the San Fransisco area and would prefer not to ship... but if you want to pay for it I suppose I'm open to it. I'll drive a considerable distance though. I am looking for $5500 (including the bag). I think the price is low enough as it is, but I'm hoping to sell this as soon as possible.
