Other Tuba Gear (2AW / Hard Case)

Vintage (Blessing??) 24AW mouthpiece (US shank) – $50/shipped OBO

Just found this in "that one last box" from my move 6 months ago, covered in tarnish. I used this mpc when I experimented with bass tuba in college (you remember those days). I polished it up to reveal a really nice-looking mouthpiece. Some mild wear on contact points, but nothing tactile. No dings, shank is true. I'm not sure of the manufacturer of this particular 24AW, but the internet seems to point toward Blessing (or Bach?). If I'm wrong, please educate me.

Shires #8 Tuba Mouthpiece (US shank) - $85/shipped OBO - SOLD

New Eastman “HD” Fiberglass Case - $150(??)/must be picked up in Brooklyn (I can deliver in NYC too)

As hardshell cases go, this is NICE! I just don’t have the room for it, and if I fly to a gig, it’ll be on sousa. This case (and modular foam blocks) looks like it can accommodate most 3/4 and 4/5 tubas no taller than 35” with a max bell size of 20”. I can post detailed pics with measurements later, but empirical evidence suggests it’ll fit Eastman’s 85X Ebs, 632 4/4 CC, and similarly shaped York/King/Conn/Yamaha horns. I can provide detailed measurements.

Just wanted to throw is a couple of Houser/Blokepiece component trade ideas, even if they’re obscure:

*Sellmansberger Imperial Cup and/or Shank
*Laskey Helleburg rim in Lexan or Gold H-Kote
