It's a great horn! General condition is very excellent. Valves are superb. Intonation is very good and the first valve slide is "worked" for easy tuning adjustments using the left hand. I played two gigs with it this past weekend with a contemporary band (trumpet, trombone, tuba, guitar, keyboard, drum-kit, and vocals). The horn fit right in either walking a bass line or in harmony with the trumpet/trombone. It is also played regularly in a larger ensemble (20+ players) and I find the Cerveny large enough, with plenty of volume to spare....What I'm saying is that this is a very versatile tuba. Pictures are available for serious inquiries only.
I just took delivery of a B&S, and my wife doesn't believe I "need" two of these beasts. She is right of course!!
