new/demo JP 379B "piggy"-like 4-rotor BBb tuba

Postby bloke » Thu Mar 16, 2017 9:04 pm

...a lot of TubeNet chatter, lately, about "piggy"-this/"piggy"-that...etc...

There's currently a John Packer model 379B (if you will) "piggy"-style 4-rotors BBb tuba available which is discounted below our normal extremely low discounted prices, as it is an open-box/demo (new) instrument.

To be fair to other dealers, I'm not going to post our price here, and I do not ever post below-MAP prices on public boards.

It's a new-with-warranty instrument that has been to one or more shows.

These are large bore (19.5mm) with the same super high-grade rotors and linkage found on the other top-grade JP rotary tubas. The material is 80:20 "gold" brass and nickel silver. The paddles and carriage system are solid nickel silver, and not nickel-plated brass. The links are genuine Minibal.

case/mpc/oil included...and factory warranty.
You can message or email me for pricing of this (single) instrument.

The price quoted will include free shipping to the CONUS.
Priced to sell, I don't believe it will last very long, fwiw.

no...I am ~NOT~ offering, but - as can be seen from the picture, there is enough straight mouthpipe above the #1 rotor to add a #5 rotor - if the buyer is so inclined to add one (parts acquired wherever...) ...sometime off in the future.

Just fwiw...
* :arrow: The JP 379B is nowhere close to this price.
* :arrow: The JP 379B actually IS in stock - ready to ship.
* :arrow: I strongly suspect that you would like the JP rotors/linkage much better.
