Rudy/ Martin 5 valve Eb Tuba For Sale $700

Postby Adam Peck » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:07 pm

I've decided to sell my Rudy / Martin Eb frankentuba finished by Norm Epley. It started as most of a Rudy Eb with the mouthpipe missing and only rotor valves 3 and 4 extant. Norm added a Martin front 3 piston set and made a faux 4th valve linkage and a thumb 5th valve trigger. Valves have great compression. I can play all notes in tune and the horn can play suprisingly loud. 34 " long. 13 1/2 " bell. c. 720 " bore. I must say it plays better than I had expected it to. 4th valve ball linkage has popped off once while playing it. Mouthpiece sensitive and a Laskey 30 C works well in it. I'd like to keep it but our '67 Rambler Rogue convertible needs work. No case. I should be able to ship it to most locations for $70-$90. Located in Muncy, P.A. Pictures to follow. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_ ... 1281303311" target="_blank" target="_blank


I would like to add that I would not recommend this horn as a main bass tuba for grad school or for someone to use for advanced recital work. It is a fun, playable frankentuba at a reasonable price.
