WTB: 5/4 or 6/4 CC Tuba near Chicago

Postby Awegner2 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 1:39 pm

Hello TubeNet,
I'm interested in making the switch from my 4/4 BBb VMI 3301 to a larger CC horn. I'm not hellbent on anything specific other than the following stipulations:

It must have piston valves
It must have more than 4 valves.

I'm fairly new to the larger CC tubas, but thus far I have tried out a PT-6, MrP, Wessex Chicago York, and a Miraphone 1293. I really liked all of the tubas that I've tried so far. The MrP and the Miraphone had stellar free-blowing characteristics. The Wessex and the PT-6 that I played had outstanding intonation. I'd prefer not to travel more than 200 miles from Chicago to try out a horn but I'm a fairly flexible human. Thanks in advance.

Andrew

Matt Gaunt has (had?) an MRP, and he is in Chicago.

My budget is anywhere from 6-10K and I'm looking to buy some time before the fall.

If you are willing to compromise on your piston stipulation and distance, then I've got a stonkingly good PT-6 for sale in th eUK.

Ola, while I loved the Mr P I played, I'd really need to be able to drive some reasonable distance and spend a fair amount of time putting it through its paces before making a purchase of this magnitude. Also, I do heavily prefer pistons.

Bort, thanks for the post. Something to consider. I see your ribbon has a PT-7 (soon) in it. How familiar are you with that horn and how does it compare to something like a PT-6p?
