    I'm selling my Conn 34J tuba:

    BBb
    4 front piston valves
    6/4 size
    Made in 1921 by Conn, Elkhart, USA
    Bell: 22" upright
    Bore 0.810"
    Height: 40"
    Weight: 27 lbs.
    Silver plated

    This tuba is in excellent condition for its age and super fun to play, really easy blowing for such a massive instrument. Great for those outside and large concert hall jobs where it can produce a superb deep sonorous sound.

    Lots more information, pictures and contact details available at http://www.timhayton.com/Conn34J.htm

    Based in Oxfordshire, UK, can meet in southern England or will ship anywhere at cost. Offers around £2500 (4800 USD).

    Looks like a thing of awesome rudeness - I might have to drop in on Tim to try it before it goes...

    Hi Dave good to hear from you. Of course pop in anytime for a blow on 'the beast', although it may have to be in the shed - the neighbours 3 doors away are not too happy when it plays pedals in the house, their shelves vibrate along the terrace quite nicely :) Definately a shame to sell it but no work for me at the mo (damn credit crunch) so need the money.

    Hi Tim,
    I have emailed you on the email address situated on your website enquiring about the instrument.

    Looks a beauty!
