188-5U "Pro" Model from Circa 1982. Old Tommy Johnson horn. All five valves are vented. This horn has an excellent response and intonation. It has it fair share of dents, but none affect the playing condition. There is no corrosion and the valves have been well maintained. This horn is a great entry level CC or a good second or third horn. Spatulas have quarters soldered on for finger placement (not for looks). Horn is lightweight and plays great. If interested call Matt at 407-273-3685.
Price: $2750.00 Firm.
TE 186A-5U. Horn was built circa 1995. Lacquer has been stripped everywhere but the first valve slide. Quarters have been soldered onto spatulas (double layer). This horn playes well and has a very dark sound for a 186. It is considerably heavier than the 188, but still has a good response. Intonation is good with an even sound through all registers. There are no dents in this horn and the valves are as good as they come. This horn would be great in a quintet setting or for use in lighter orchestral repertiore. A great all around CC. Call Jeff at 407-249-2797 for more information.
Price: $3500.00 Firm.
Also Selling a YFB 621S (Yamaha 3/4 F tuba, silver plated). This horn will be available for sale in about a month or so (it's on loan). If interested call Matt (see # above). This horn is a solid all purpose F tuba once owned by Chris Olka and played by him to win the national MTNA competition. This horn has great valves and is virtually dent free.
Price: $3950.00 Firm.
