Marzan CC Piston Solo Model Tuba- Price Drop- $3,200

Postby Stephen Shoop » Thu Jul 19, 2018 8:04 pm

For sale is my 4 valve piston solo model CC Marzan tuba in very good to excellent condition. The horn comes with a nice side loading gig bag that fits it like a glove. I have owned the instrument since 1978. When I was a student at Indiana University, Harvey Phillips borrowed the horn for a week or two. He told me that Fred Marzan used his (Harvey's) as a model for this tuba and wanted to call it the "Phillips model." Several years ago, I had Dennis Houghton (Houghton Horns) replace the original leadpipe with one that is slightly larger. The tuba is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area. I prefer not to ship... but the issue is not out of the question. I'm willing to travel a reasonable distance to meet potential buyers. Two pictures are posted on Dan Schultz's (The Village Tinker) Marzan tuba page- http://thevillagetinker.com/Marzan%20Horns.htm" target="_blank. Additional photos available upon request. $3,500 plus shipping. Steve Shoop- 972-898-2922 (voice/text); stephen_shoop@yahoo.com" target="_blank... or you can send a pm.

Nice tuba!

LONG ago, I played in a community band where another player used one of these "small" Marzan tubas. A nice-sized CC tuba (not too big or too small) and a very nice sound. No clue why Willson doesn't still make a tuba of this size (ok, they do, the model 4400... but it's grossly unpopular). Anyone looking for a smaller (but not Yamaha-small) CC tuba should give this a serious look.

PS -- anyone who doesn't know Steve, he's a professional, a great player, and a great person.
