    hehe that seller has SERIOUS issues!
     
  6. Do you think he bought his Psychologists advice on e-bay too???
    It's almost - not quite but almost - worth ringing the Psychologists number that he has posted just to find out a bit more about what psychological damage playing this tuba actualy caused him - It's got me worried ;-)

    Geez this bloke has some major tuba issues.

    So..was it a BBb or a CC?

    He would never have ended up that way if he'd taken up the flugel :cool: . I have to say, if I was buying something on eBay, I'd hesitate to buy from someone who was so confused about what he was selling. What if it turned out to be an Eb tuba? :-D

    I think that depends on if you are playing treble or bass clef ;)

    Thanks, Peter.
    It's now coming up as an Invalid Item. Just as I was wondering how I might get it back to the UK!

    You could seal up the case with duct tape, and use it as a raft... might take a while to get back though ;)

    Gosh I'm full of great ideas... well full of something, anyway!

    You are asking for trouble Peter. Even I'm not brave enough to suggest that! ;)
