FS: C.G. Conn 52J CC Silver tuba

$6,500, OBO
Make: C.G. Conn
Model: 52J
5 Valve (4P/1R)
Silver, satin finish
4/4 size
Comes with hard case and mouthpieces

Asking price is $6,500, but certainly negotiable. Very sad to part with this horn, but I no longer play. Bought it new back in 2009 and it got me through 4 years of undergrad music school at Arizona state. Recently had it cleaned and aligned, so it's in great condition.
Currently located in Denver, CO

Good looking tuba, in great shape. Makes me smile to see a modern American made CC tuba. :)

Man, I always see other 5X Js like mine that look so clean and makes me question ever decision I've even made in life. Do you wear a full body suit made out of silver polish clothes when you play?

Like some folks say, these play bigger than they look. I recently changed to MAW valves and found a MP I'm happy with to make it ever larger in presence. Nice horn.

Oh, I just had it cleaned and polished right before taking these pictures. It was not so pristine before that, lol
