Quite possibly this is a land line. They did specify that you should call... :oops:

Behind the times and it's the seller's fault for not making all options of contact available. I was not available to call at the time at work. Modern age of communication, get with it or get left in the dust. I'd rather have called though.

Hi-
I just called the number. Spoke to a very nice older gentleman who due to age/health, can't continue to play the tuba. It is his horn. Horn does indeed play AND it is still available!! If I lived close to NYC, I would go over and get it!
Good luck!

If I were interested (and I'm not), and assuming it's in good playing condition, I would offer him more than his asking price.

Last time I saw a horn like that and referred a Tubenetter to it (here locally) I saw it up on Ebay for twice the price. :?

Would probably be a killer horn for 1000. Drop 500 with Matt Walters to service/tweak.

But if you call Matt in July with a big project like this, be prepared to WAIT! :D

Received tuba today. Got some damage in transport but it plays amazing! I'm not your pro player, just easy Dixieland and oompah type of playing but I haven't played anything that's so free blowing and slots so easy. Engraving states: Kalashen's Kaiser Model New York 1940. Assuming that's serial number that should placed it before 1905. Not sure where this website takes its estimates but that's where I got serial and years estimates: http://simonettitubacollection.com/instruments-listed-by-manufacturer/manufacturer-l-r/kalashen/

Thank you to OP who always finds something cool, it's usually out if my reach but since this one was so cheap I decided to take a risk and buy it unseen.
Who's the maker of this one? Cerveny, B&F?

It has some things that would need to be addressed and here are some photos. Any suggestions on possible rotor action assembly replacement? Rotors look like it's from the early 1900's, bell has some tears.
