My BBb tuba is available for sale. I purchased new in 2010 from Custom Music. This instrument is a current model, and the link to the specs is here:

http://www.customtubas.com/proddetail.p ... 5_BBb_Tuba"



Horn is for sale with a blue cordura Cronkhite gig bag and an MTS case. Cases are in excellent condition. Asking price for the 3 items is $5700. No shipping is available, please try it before you buy it. I am 40 miles west of Lake Michigan.

The horn plays very well and I want to see it go to a player who will enjoy it. If you are seeking a broad, dark sound in the low register this horn is a good choice. There are a few very small dents from normal use.

Still for sale. I did notice a little lacquer wear for the first time today. Plays very well.

These are very nice tubas, and this is a very good deal for someone. Surprised it hasn't sold.

Good luck with it, John.

If I needed a BBb and/or had a few thousand extra dollars, I would drive out sometime next week to try it out. Nice horn!

Hi! Didn't see that the horn was sold. Do you still have it? I had a silver version of ths horn and loved it and, like an idiot, sold it. Wishing I had it back but I just saw your horn so I thought I'd check. Please advise at your earliest convenience!

Thanks!
Well...there it is!!!

Thanks for the bump. Yes the horn is still here. I have a hard case and a bag, and owing to the bulk of all that, I don't care to ship it. It's been priced accordingly. I started playing it again in a brass band, and it plays like a charm. If I sell it, I will revert to relearning the music on another instrument.

Summer time bump for a horn that you can test just one mile from the expressway on your vacation across the Great Lakes region.
