In addition to the BBb 25 I'm selling, I Also have the:
2145 Meinl-weston CC
4 piston steel valves (Big Valve)
Bore: .748in - .787in
5th valve rotary valve (.807in) thumb operated
Bell diameter: 16.5in
This full-sized tuba is small in appearance but surprising due to the power and projection of the sound emitted.
This is an ideal instrument for general playing, especially if you own only a single tuba or need a high quality instrument for the unpredictable demands of free-lancing. This instrument is at home as a solo instrument, in chamber music, in average-sized orchestras, or lighter orchestral repertoire. The piston valves feature over-sized valve buttons for ease of use and the highest quality piston valves on the market today. This instrument was designed in cooperation with Sam Pilafian.
Great condition, it was my jazz and quintet horn for years. It did a fabulous job with the Interlochen Academy Orchestra as well. I'll negotiate serious prices. I live in Green Bay WI. Email me if you're interested.
