I have a Mirafone 186 4 valve BBb tuba for sale. It is in reasonably good shape with a few dings on the bottom bow and first branch. The bell has been wrinkled but it straightened out quite well. The bell ring is tight. The stem on the first valve was bent and I have been able to straighten it to allow it to function well in its normal travel. The lacquer is in good shape except for around the trim ring on the bell. This tuba was obtained from Kansas State University by a piano technician that took it in trade for some work that he did. I think that they offered it to him because of the valve problem that made it not usaable as it was. There is no case or mouthpiece with the horn. I am asking $2800. I can e-mail pictures to anyone that is interested. You can also call at 402-596-0820.
