FT/BO: 1933 H.N.White Symphony 1235 EEb *PICS*

Postby KingBassTrombone » Wed Oct 10, 2018 9:17 am

Same size and design as a King 1240/old 2340, with a 22" recording bell and 3 valves of 0.687" bore. Gorgeous frosted silver plate with bright silver bell cap and gold wash in the bell. Some spots of tarnish, and the gold wash is fading through to silver in some spots. Little dings and dents here and there, a little ripple in the bell curve. All tuning slides function, and at one point it was cut to modern pitch (was in low). Valves have very little compression and they're worn down to the copper... it needs either very thick valve oil or a valve rebuild. This is a great horn to learn Eb with, it blows very easily and response is point-and-shoot. I will include a well-matching H.N.White 26 mouthpiece if you wish, but any standard-shank mouthpiece will work.

It comes with its original case, which is in pretty good shape. I'm not willing to ship, but I can drive within a 3-hour radius of 43606 (Toledo, OH) to meet up in person. Paypal or cash is fine. PICS HERE: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2/fold ... kGpw-CGgaR" target="_blank

Here is a video of the tuba being played, it is the one on the left: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aluN4Dh78mQ" target="_blank" target="_blank

Price? Send me an offer!
WILLING TO TRADE FOR: a good Eb sousaphone, a beat-up BBb sousaphone (fiberglass is fine), compensating euphonium, Conn 20-I short-action baritone, or anything else unique that may peak my interest as a trombone/euphonium/tuba player.

There is a recording in Media of him playing it. I think it reads Eb vs. Bb bass lines. In fact, he plays all five parts. Two on trombone, with really good high chops for a 5B and two on a King baritone.The tuba sounds great and from what I could see of it, is in very nice shape. Ed
