For Sale: 3/4 5 rotary valve Rudolph Meinl CC Tuba. Includes hard case and gig bag. Asking price is : $4500. That price is firm, but I can be budged a little bit.
The tuba was made in the 1970's and has had a total of three owners to my knowledge. The lacquer is all original. Lacquer is worn away in the typical wear points.
There are a few dings in the bell and a few dents on the body. None of these dings/dents are detrimental to the pitch/sound/response of the tuba.
Considering the age (20+ years) the tuba is in VERY good condition. The horn plays VERY well in tune, has a WONDERFUL response, and an AMAZING low register. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at home or email me:

Also, if you plan on attending the 1998 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, IL, we could set up a meeting for you to try out this instrument while you are in town.
