About a month ago I posted two Mirafone CC's for sale and the possibility of a yamaha F for sale. Well neither one of the CC's have been sold and I now have the Yamaha F on the auction block. I'll go over the horns again for those interested.
Five valve CC tuba built in '95, stripped lacquer well maintained, dark sound good intonation, valves are in great shape with quick response, a great all around horn. This horn is in near mint condition.
If interested contact Jeff Alvarez at 407-249-2797. Price c.$3750
Reason for selling, because he bought a new 4/4 Nirschl.
Mirafone 188-5U CC:
Five valve CC tuba built in the early eighties, previous Tommy Johnson horn. Plays great with superb intonation, quick response, lots of projection & good valves. TheThis horn has some wear and tear but still plays well.
If interested contact me, Matt Gilchrest at 407-273-3795. Price $2500 OBO.
Reason for selling, I just bought a VMI MC 6/4 PV.
Yamaha YFB 621S:
Five valve (4p,1r) silver plated 3/4 F tuba. This tuba is a good all purpose F tuba with good projection and an outstanding low register(plays like a CC in the pedal range) This horn is also in near mint condition with just one wear spot on the plating. I have used this horn in an orchestra, quintet and wind ensemble (to replicate a british band sound) and have always been pleased with the results. I bought this horn from a respected tubist who won the national MTNA competition with it. It is a good tuba.
If interested contact Matt G. See number above.
Reason for selling is I just don't need it anymore.
Note: All tubas are Y2K ready.
If you attempt to email me it may take some time for me to reply seeing as it is my wife's account and I don't get to check it regularly.
