In Reply to: Happy New Year... Tubas for sale? posted by Billy M. on December 30, 2001 at 22:29:32:
Interesting coincidence that I was logging on just to post this for sale.
I have a Boosey (not B&H) Eb four valved compensating tuba that I'm selling. I bought it because I saw it on ebay at a good price, but I realize that I'm not ever going to fix it up because I really don't like 3+1 tubas. I bought it for $850, so I'll try to get $850. It needs some valve work (you may get away with replating only the first and fourth valves), but there are no dents that effect playability and the silver plating is in pretty good condition. I like the sound, and it has great response, but again it needs work that I don't have the money to put into it.
I'd also consider an Eb sousaphone as part of a trade.
