The best thing to do is contact all of the major univesities and colleges in your area and talk with the tuba instructor. All tuba instructors know where the horns that are for sale are, or the contacts are in your area. People are always letting these instructors know when they have a horn for sale. They also know of other tubists in other cities who have gone to the major tuba stores and tried horns and can relay what the good horns are. You also may be pretty safe purchasing a manufacture like Yamaha that has consistancy in their production.
