FT: Mel Culbertson Neptune 6/4 CC

Post by Isaiah_Buzdygon »

UPDATE: In order to be more explicit here is a list of tubas I am specifically interested in: PT6/P, MR.P CC, Miraphone 1292/3, Meinl Weston 3450, and 5450. Again, I am willing to listen to offers, but I figured this list may be helpful to some.

Looking to possibly move on from my Neptune. It is one of the piston models and is closely related to the PT7-P. As far as I understand, the only difference between the two models is that the Neptune has a 20.5" bell, which is a bit larger than the PT7-P. I very well could be incorrect on this so I wouldn't take it as a quote. I bought this horn during my sophomore year of college (2018-19). I used it throughout the rest of my undergraduate studies and I used it to get accepted into my current Masters program. It's a great horn and I have come to love it over the time I have owned it, but I am thinking of moving to something a bit smaller. The only modification is that the valves were vented by Matt Walters at Dillon Music. It has a good amount of cosmetic damage, but nothing that would affect playability. All dents and scratches pictured here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

Ideally, I'd love to trade for a PT6 (rotary or piston). However I'd be willing to listen to offers for a 5/4 or Large 4/4 CC tuba. I'm not really in a place where I could go a long time without a CC tuba so trading would be more ideal for me at the moment, but in the right circumstances I would be willing to sell.

I am located in Waco, TX. If you have any questions feel free to send me a private message or reach me at my email: isaiahbuzdygon at gmail dot com

Bump with an update. I have gotten a few questions on what my selling price would be. I haven't specified because I am still looking for a trade ideally. However I am going to list the tuba at $8,000. Please reach out if you're interested!
