Places to Test Tubas

Postby Kpen » Mon Apr 15, 2019 8:00 pm

Hey Tubenet, I was wondering if there were any places near Metro Detroit (less than a 5 hour drive) where I could possibly test some Tubas. I went to Custom Tubas in Ferndale Michigan but they did not have anything in stock. Thanks in advance!

The warehouse in Michigan was closed last September to consolidate all Wessex stock in one warehouse in the UK. Not that matters to customers, as Wessex now gives FREE shipping to anywhere in the USA and most orders are received in less than one week.

The new showroom near Chicago provides a much better experience for customers to try the whole range of Wessex. We try to have an example of every model in the showroom.

It is only 20 minutes from O’Hare airport. The address is;

344 E. Irving Park Rd. (IL Rte. 19)
Roselle Commons, Roselle, IL 60172

Please ring 616-843-6888 to make an appointment to visit.
