    Price is negotiable, especially if purchased as a pair. Both are played regularly in a Championship section band.

    What are the differences between the 991 and the currently produced Besson BBb tubas (994?)

    No idea mate, I just posted what I was told. It could be the age of them that makes them 991's. The EEb's, which haven't gone through as many changes as the poorly intonated BBb's are still 981's, although there are other models as well!
