Bump for Adam, he is a great person and is selling at a great price.

He FaceTimed me earlier this week and compared the horn to an Ursus, and I thought this horn sounded very similar to a new Ursus he was testing. The Ursus had a great middle register to it, while I thought the sound consistency was better on the 2145 in all ranges. I’ve recently heard him on a Wyvern and a Miraphone 188 and this horn has been the best yet.

Honestly, being quite familiar with this model, this horn would be everything 95% of professionals would ever need, from quintet, to solo, to orchestral. For those 5% who prefer using “lap sousaphones” in their orchestral auditions, well this horn would be a great Brahms/Meistersinger/etc horn to add to the arsenal.

Thank you very much for the kind words. It really is a great playing horn, I just stumbled upon something that suited me better for a price I couldn’t pass up.

I know it's early to Bump, but I have a couple updates.

Surprised this is available. That’s a great example of the 2145. I wish I could buy it.
Witty signature line.

Re: FS: PRICE DROP MW 2145 CC MAW/PVAK $5,750

Postby adsteve » Sat Sep 14, 2019 7:07 pm

BUMP: Price drop to $5,750. Again, this include MAW Valves which really open up the horn and make it respond better. It also has a PVAK Kit and an MTS hardcass. It’s it is a local pickup I can toss in a Protec gig bag. But if I’m shipping, I can’t fit the gig bag into the case.

Feel free to make me an offer, I’m looking to unload this pretty quickly.

I’ve sold a tuba to Adam in the past. Very easy to deal with. Always a pleasant experience.

Seems like a good deal with the MAW valves included........

BUMP: This horn is OFFICIALLY back on the market. The deal I was working on fell through due to logistics.

Again, this is a FANTASTIC example of this horn made better by the addition of MAW valves and a PVAK kit. The horn will come with the MAW valves, PVAK Kit, original valves, MTS Hardcase, and a Protec gig bag if it is a local sale. The horn will be on trial for part of next week, but I wanted to bump this back to the top now that it is no longer on hold.

Asking price is $5,750+shipping. Reasonable offers entertained and I am a motivated seller.

Do the math, people...

How much do MAW valves cost?
How much does a PVAK cost?
MTS Case?
Gig bag?
Clean, serviced, ready to go...

Then subtract all of that from $5500. You're going to see a number that starts with a 4, and well below $4999.

If this was advertised as "MW 2145 only, stock, no extras. $4xxx", would that look better?

Also, if you take this to BBC, for a few hundred dollars they will work their magic and apply the BBC mods that they used to do for the BBC model 2145 (except for the larger bell of the 2145). Those BBC 2145s we're pretty sweet horns. I'd bet that applying those mods to this 2145 would be :) :tuba: :!:
