Rudolf Meinl Perantucci Model CC Tuba – $10,125.00

Rudolf Meinl Perantucci Model CC Tuba, ser# 092338, .710″ bore, 18″ bell, 35″ tall
The Rudolf Meinl Perantucci CC tuba, made between 1988 and 1992, is a very close copy of a 1912 Conn Helleberg model piston CC, owned by Harold McDonald, then by Robert Tucci. This is a true hand-made replica of a Conn hand-made professional CC tuba from the shop of Rudolf Meinl. It is a truly fine instrument, that I play-tested with two orchestras and one band, and all I can say is that it is a great tuba. The instrument has two main tuning slides, one in the leadpipe and one after the valves. Rudolf Meinl offered an optional main slide with a 5th rotor, converting it to a 5-valve instrument. I have ordered the optional 5th valve and will include it with the tuba. The instrument has a beautiful Kariso hard case and a Cronkhite bag.

Please call for more details on this fine instrument.

Alexander 155 F Tuba – $5,750.00

Alexander 155 F Tuba, ser# 0379 , .720″ bore, 14.5″ bell, 37.25″ tall
This is one of the very best F tubas I’ve played, small enough to be really agile, but also capable of plenty of volume. The valves are in excellent condition, as is the rest of the instrument. The solid nickel-silver valve casings and gold brass construction are indications of a top-quality European instrument. Just to be sure, I practiced on it daily for over a week and used it for two commitments where it surpassed my expectations. I consider this F tuba a really special find, and think that you will too. This instrument comes with a chocolate colored cordura Cronkhite bag.

Buescher 685 BBb Sousaphone – $3500.00

Buescher 685 BBb Sousaphone, ser# 144142, .770″ bore, 30″ bell
This 1923 Buescher 685 is quite the player! We have taken this sousaphone out on a number of gigs and have received great compliments. This sousaphone features a 30″ bell that really puts out some sound. The 30″ bell would have been made as a special request for this model as the standard size was 26″. The bell is copper plated on the inside which gives this sousaphone a unique look. The majority of the instrument is raw brass. This sousaphone has four valves enabling the player to play more notes without the need for privilege tones.This sousaphone is made in such a way that it could be cut to CC (for an additional fee) if the new owner wanted. This instrument has been serviced here and is ready for your next gig!
