That's interesting. I usually think just the opposite. Why would I buy a new Hirsbrunner for $17000 when I can get one that's already broken in for $2000 less. My philosophy is that $2000 is $2000. If a used one fits my bill, then why spend another $2000. If a tuba is taken care of it will last a lifetime. Why does it matter if it is used today? If I buy a brand new tuba, someday it is going to be a used tuba. Would you spend $2000 on a new Weril if you could get a used one for nothing? In either the Hirsbrunner or Weril situation you are still saving yourself $2000. $2000 is $2000.
