For Sale…

VMI/Neptune Mel Culbertson 5198 6/4 CC Tuba

Selling my Mel Culbertson Neptune. Sadly, it does not get used all that much anymore and I no longer need it. There are a few dings and scratches on the bottom bow and the bell. There are also some spots where the lacquer has worn off. Otherwise, the horn plays great. Huge, dark sound!

I am asking $7,500. I am willing to entertain other offers. I am not interested in a trade. The horn comes with a well-worn pro-tech gig bag. The horn is located in downtown Los Angeles.

If interested, send a PM or email at andy@theabels.org" target="_blank.

I’ve played this horn and it is quite good. If you’re looking for a PT6P on steroids...this is your horn!
Good luck with the sale!

I was going to buy your tuba, but I don't like how your toes look.
