SOLD: Eastman 562 4v BBb

I just received this used tuba a few weeks ago. It is a SOLID instrument with great intonation, easy response, and an easy low range. It’s not cosmetically perfect (the bell is nice and shiny), and Matt Walters did some dent work on it previously, but she’s a very nice player. Still has the tag on it. I also vented the first valve. All slides move easily, especially the first and fourth. I guess this is supposed to be a 4/4, but it is not a small tuba. It’s more like a 5/4, but it steers easily like a 4/4. Black zippered case included. This model is based on the GR-51, and it plays every bit as well as the GR-51, but at a fraction of the cost.

Reason I’m selling? I bit the bullet and ordered a Miraphone Hagen 496 5v.

cool sounding horn, the Beer Barreled Polka reminds me of a more civilized and in-tune "Banda" style players' bass lines.

This is a seriously good tuba. I’ve had a couple of tire kickers, one somewhat serious, but no takers. Their loss is your gain.

The store from which it was purchased is well-represented here on Tubenet by the repair/design/sales/player/guru who put my order together, made sure it was clean, working, etc. He said that if I wanted a better large BBb tuba, I would have to get a Hagen. And that’s exactly what I wound up doing. But the 562 plays closer to a Hagen than the price would indicate.

I have a student that is interested in the horn if things go south. Let me know what the future of the horn is.
