FS - Meinl Weston 5450 Thor $9,600 OBO

Greetings!

I am putting my Thor (big bell) on the market to purchase a 6/4 CC tuba. This instrument has served me amazingly since I purchased it new from Baltimore Brass in 2013. I selected it in-store from a batch. All valves and slides are in great shape and maintenance has been done by the amazing Joe Felton in Kansas City. There is a small dent in the first valve slide, the bell has been rolled out from a small crease, and there are spots on the leadpipe. Aside from this, it is in very good shape. I'm asking $9,600 but am willing to negotiate to get it sold. It comes with the ubiquitous Supersac gig bag that's in good shape. This horn has done everything I've asked and more over the past 6 or so years, and it will serve someone else equally well. I'm attaching pictures with this post. Please feel free to DM me or email me at maxwgerhart@gmail.com" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank with any questions. I'm based in the Kansas City area.

Thanks!

You need to list a location for the horn as per the posting rules above.

Your horn looks to be a good one.

Since buying, selling, and SHIPPING tubas can be such a PITA these days, if you are willing to entertain the idea of a trade for a 6/4 horn then say that in the ad copy (it is easy to edit your post and title if you wish) and list what 6/4 tubas you might be interested in owning.

Trades have saved me *many* hassles and miles on my car, since I no longer trust a horn to shippers. Trading also makes you set a value of your horn based solely on playing qualities rather than sticker price. I have done some very nice trades over the years that were *not* of equal dollar value, but that were outstanding musical choices. I have traded both "down" and "up" in financial terms, but every time, I have "profited" by having a horn that ended up being more valuable *to me* than what I had before. And my search and sales and shipping fiasco was melded into a single long day of driving and no money changing hands.

Best of luck, and keep an open mind.

Elephant,

Thanks for pointing that out! I edited my original post. I'm already getting another instrument and just need to sell my Thor. I appreciate your input however!
