My poor Neo BBb is suffering from a seized 1st valve slide and I can’t budge it.
Any tested methods or ideas to safely move it?
It’s my own fault for neglecting the poor thing. I may otherwise have to resort to finding a Tuba doctor in Yorks to help. :)
In lacquer and about 4-years of age and lovely condition, barely used (due to time constraints!), slight/minor marks to bottom bow (small scratch to area) + tiny 'pin' dent (makes no difference cosmetically/playing-wise).

Any second, third or fourth section bands looking for a EEb bass player?
Ideally West Yorks, or South Yorks depending on mileage. Or wind bands too.
Ideally looking for 1 practice weekly, 2 ok if not miles away. Looking to resurrect my EEb lip from BBb for a change. ;)
Drop me a PM. :)
Any Champ/1st or 2nd Section bands in West Yorkshire (can't go further afield at the moment) needing a BBb Tuba?
I can only commit to 1 rehearsal a week though, more if availability is there.
Drop me a PM. :)
I'm considering a change of pace to get back into higher level section banding.
Got my own BBb Tuba and can commit to most nights of practice, although Monday's are particularly difficult due to work commitments (lots of bands seem to practice on a Monday!).
So, anyone looking in my area for...
I'm on the look out for a quality gig bag to fit my Yamaha Neo BBb, any suggestions please? I've researched a few already, but without seeing them in person it's difficult to judge.
Needs to fit the 19.5" bell and give good protection. Happy to pay more for decent quality.
Does anyone have any good ideas on how I can protect the bottom bow of my new lacquered Neo BBb and the bell rim (in particular)?
These points are most prone to scratching/damage (via placing on the floor) - I've already picked up some minor blemishes on the bow, despite careful handling...

Wessex EEb Tuba (Lacquer), no marching rings - just over 5 months old, flawless condition (not even been out of the house yet!).
Selling as don't require an EEb at the moment and space is tight! :cool:
These are currently new at £2,320, details here: http://www.wessex-tubas.co.uk/eb-bass-tuba/...
Now then this isn't from an old pair of socks down the bell or an old cheese buttie that's got lost. ;)
I have a band BBb Tuba; when I got it originally, it needed a darn good clean up. After replacing all the valve guides/springs/dampeners etc and washing it through in the bath with soap (much...
Does anyone have a rough idea of the cost to replate an EEb or BBb Tuba in silver plate?
Also, is it possible to change silver plate to lacquered?
Any recommendations for repairers in the UK much welcomed.
I'm after some individual copies of BBb Bass band parts (mainly Championship/1st Section level standard test pieces) for home practice purposes.
I don't want to commit copyright theft and end up in clink, etc, so happy to buy the original parts or purchase legally online and download/print if...
