I have an opportunity to purchase a 3-valve BBb 19" bell front Buescher in almost perfect condition. This tuba is exactly on pitch, I mean, what all I've played on it (about three weeks) I've only had to adjust the main tuning slide once, and then only about 3/8" The only thing that might worry me is the age. It's between 45-50 years old, but as I said, in near perfect condition. The owner wants $750 for it. Your advice?
