Here is funny story. I traded my first tuba, a sanders, for my second tuba, a piggy. The guy I sold it to pawned it for drug money, and I found out which pawn shop it was at. I went down there, and they wanted $1000 for it. It was a great playing CC tuba, so I might have paid that to get it back, but I opened the bag (leather reunion blues) and looked down the bell and yelled "the bell is being held on with DUCT TAPE!!!" They lowered the price to $700, and I sold it a week later for $2000. I'll give you 3 guesses who originally put the duct tape down the bell, and the first two don't count.
