Martin Mammoth BBb Tuba – $1,750.00

Martin Mammoth BBb tuba, .710″ bore, ser#209668 , 24″ recording bell, made in 1960.

This late-production Martin is my current gig tuba, until it sells. The valves have been recently restored, and look and feel like new. This Martin has the original bit set, and an added water key for the 1st valve. The instrument is virtually dent-free, and is simply a lot of fun to play. The Martin Mammoth has the smallest valve bore of all the American 6/4 tubas, and body tapers that are therefore more conical than other 6/4 tubas. The net result is that the Martin is easier to fill up than larger-bore 6/4 tubas, providing more sound with less effort, is easier to play in tune, and offers more agility than most large tubas when playing very technical passages.

Please call Lee for more information about this great tuba!

Wessex Gnagey Model Eb tuba, serial Number 0317024, silver-plated, 4 piston/5th rotor graduate bore .677″-.734″, 16 3/4″ bell

diameter, with bell protector insert, gold-plated mouthpiece and wheeled hard case.

This very-nearly-new Eb tuba was used approximately 4 hours by the original owner, and might as well be new.  The body of this

tuba compares closely to that of the 983 Eb tuba, and is equipped with a non-automatic-compensating valveset, giving the tuba  

an open and free-blowing quality, very good intonation, and powerful response.  The tuba is equipped with a 1st slide T-handle, and

also has 3rd and 4th slides on top for easy manipulation, although I doubt that you’ll need to do much in the way of slide-pulling.

The seller tried it, liked it, but ultimately decided not to pursue playing Eb tuba, and this is to the buyer’s advantage.  This basically-

new outfit is being offered at an exceptional price, and I expect the tuba to have a new owner very soon………………………$3,650.00  

Hollywood Winds Eb Baritone Saxophone


Hollywood Winds Eb Baritone Saxophone, serial number B13527, model S80-BE, low A, copper-tint body, clear lacquered keywork, with 

mouthpiece, Rovner ligature and cap, and wheeled hard case.  This visually stunning low A bari sax is a beautiful player.  Originally bought as

instrumentation for a student jazz band circa 2011, the instruments were ultimately not put in use, so the instrument remains in substantially new

condition.  This being bought by the Bix Beiderbecke Society, the only signs of use are a small “Bix” etched into the bell and neck.  An obvious 

Selmer Super Action 80 copy, it is a marvelous-sounding player, and only needs someone to play it…………………………………………….$2,750.00
