We have just got in Bubbie Eb/F mini tuba in stunning new finish of silver with gold fittings. It is available to order in both the UK and from our new distribution center in Michigan, USA.
Price in the UK will be £1,495 including VAT and in the USA $1,550 - however from now until the end of June we will sell at special introductory price of only £1,350 in the UK, or $1,450 in the USA for orders received with 50% deposit.
Note this new model Bubbie tuba has water key on the Eb slide and lyre block for use on standing gigs - where it is the perfect tuba weighing only 6 lb, or less than 3kg.

If you expect to sell those in the U.S. anywhere but in NYC and Miami, FL, you need to change the name to "Bubba".
bloke "who ain't ridiculing nothin', as all new models these days - seemingly - must sport a 'name'."
Joe, You will have to send me PM explaining - sorry I don't understand what you are talking about. 'Bubbie' was a word made-up by the bass player, Herbie Flowers, although through Google search for definition I see it is also Yiddish for 'grandmother' - but I guess must have some other less genial urban meaning?
nothing more than that...(Jewish use: "grandmother"...thus the NYC/Miami reference). Virtually every male in the "Deep South", however, is referred to as "Bubba" (slang for "brother").
It seems to me, though, that you Chinese vendors, Meinl-Weston, et al, should refer to these as CIMBASSO's (and, no, I'm not kidding). How many (original/real) 19th century cimbasso's (in all likelihood) were built like the (weird-shaped) modern-day ones? More likely, they were EXTREMELY SIMILAR to what you're selling there.
I also believe that you guys who are selling this stuff will sell a great deal MORE if you STOCK it (rather than accepting deposits for it)...but that's your business.
People should know that your USD ($) price (vs. British £ price) offers a VERY favorable rate of exchange for American customers.
This is what is recognized at the "Deep South"...the universal home of "Bubba".
WESSEX TUBAS do STOCK these and most of the other models in our range. In the UK after one year of trading, the majority of the instruments I sell are available immediately from stock - in fact a large percentage of customers try before purchase. Obviously starting in the USA we are not yet in that situation, but I hope by this time next year the situation will be much the same in Michigan.
