Looks like a nice deal...
From the owner:
"Freddie" is about 30 years old. (Serial Number 81845) Built in the 70s, the horn has 5 normal rotary valves and the 5th valve is a thumb rotary that acts as a flat 1st valve that gives the horn wonderful intonation down low.
Attached are some pics of the tuba. It has been beat up a bit over time, but only have about 5 dents in him. I've taken a picture of the biggest. 'Bout the size of a 50 cent piece.
The horn is currently in the repair shop getting oiled, shined and chem cleaned. It will be ready on Friday.
It is a great horn....very used, but an awesome piece of machinery.
