Over the years, I've sold less than ten new Willson euphoniums (to friends) and only one CC tuba (to my best friend). Willson instruments are available to me, but I won't be ordering them for stock, unless I throw up a big website.
Like I've said quite a few times on this bbs, selling over-$4000 tubas is a very specialized business, and unless a store is gigantic (like wwbw / B-M) or specialized (like Dillon or Baltimore Brass), unfortunately most of the expensive tuba lookers end up being merely tuba denters or just bullshitters - sort of like BP.
