    1920's Triumph 3 valve B flat tuba by the Salvation Army in silver plate.

    Lots of plating wear hear & there but generally still in nice condition.

    I have tried to show the many dings & dents in the photos.
    Valves work nicely and it blows with an even tone and a great tuba sound, modern pitch A440.

    This is the compact version which sits in the lap with the bell at head height, similar to E flat models and would suit a person of smaller build ideally.

    Fully serviced, no case, supplied with period mouthpiece but using a modern small shank one vastly improves it.

    Collection only, Heathrow area, close to M4/M40/M25/M3
