Pre-owned, this instrument is in perfect playing condition, but is in very well used and cosmetically, is well worn.

At least 80% of the silver plate is worn away to natural brass and there are lots of small dents and scratches. None of these affect play and all the wear, marks, dents and scratches are purely cosmetic.

All components are free and working exactly as they should. The valves are excellent, tuning slides operating freely will a firm pull/push. It's an instrument that has travelled the world, is still playing great and is good for another 70+ years if looked after.

A word on the case. This tuba is supplied with a Yamaha hard case which has seen better days. It's still functional but only just. It has two additional catches fitted which can be used with padlocks. The original catches are present but are not stable. We will supply 2 padlocks with keys (these will be packed inside the case for delivery). The case will be secured for delivery with cable ties. Worth noting, we are only including the case in an effort to get the tuba delivered safely to you. We recommend a new case, but those with a leaning towards "make do and mend", should be able to prolong the life of the case with some added TLC.
