Awesome tubas. I love my 3302. Price is a little high in my opinion, but not unreasonable. Someone should jump on this. They don't come up for sale very often and play virtually identically to their CC counterparts. You won't regret it!

These are great tubas! :tuba: I remember when the VMI 3301/3302 BBb tubas came out. WW&BW was the importer/seller of these. I think the late Charlie Krause owned one of these when he worked @ WW&BW. I tooted on one for a long time and could not put it down because it played so well. Think of a German version of a King 2341 and you have this. Actually, IMO, a better tuba than the King 2341. Wish VMI/B&S still made these great tubas :idea:

I remember 10 years ago, when Brook Mays was selling these for $2800 for 4 valve model or $3000 for the 5 valve model with a case. I picked up one, didnt care for it and sold it a couple of years later for more than what I paid.

Inflation in tuba market is painful.

I worked for brook mays around 2002 (took over for Charlie Krause when he got out of the business) and I sold a bunch of them.

I never thought they were amazing tubas z but really solid without major flaws. At the time I thought the king was a better BBb, but long term the build quality of the VMI would have made it a better choice than the king

And yeah, they used to be an affordable tuba. I could have sold one for less than $3000 any day of the week.

Stopped in and played this horn yesterday. It’s a very nice example and will get you that nice big German sound. Very easy to play low. Intonation good with a couple of slide pulls. If you’re looking for an all around Bb, give this one a go!
