I have made the decision that I am giving up playing the tuba and sticking with bass trombone, so I am selling my Besson Sovereign 982 Silver EEb tuba. It was purchased new by me in 2009 from Normans. It is in virtually ‘as new’ condition apart from a couple of minor dents on the bottom section. The bell is immaculate, as it has never been stood on it’s bell, I have always used an instrument stand. It is perfect to play, the valves and tuning slides move freely. The hard case is also umarked. If any band or musician is interested in purchasing my tuba please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would obviously like to get as much as I can and I would welcome offers. I see that a new one today would cost nearly £7000. I’m reluctant to put it on ebay, so I thought I would offer it here first. I am in Horsham in Sussex. Phil.
