In Reply to: Used Military Tubas?? posted by TubaJohn on April 12, 1999 at 22:01:32:
I'm not an old military guy but I think I can help. Most services have warehouses where these instruments are kept. When new instruments are purchased, they replace the old ones currently in service. It is my understanding that the old instruments are sent to this warehouse where they are refurbished and sold at auction. Maybe someone out there can elaborate on this process and would maybe have some info concerning these auction.
