This is a classic Miraphone CC tuba is a big tuba in a compact wrap. Popular through the years as heard by great players in orchestras and on film scores, this tuba boasts reliable German craftsmanship.
This tuba comes from the original owner who bought it new in 1990. It is yellow brass with a nicke-silver leadpipe. The 5th valve is equal to a 2+3 valve combination which was standard on Miraphones at the time. The 5th valve slide moves very smoothly and has a trigger option (provided) but not currently installed.
Condtion on this tuba is excellent considering it is over 30 years old. The valve linkages (older plastic style) were replaced just last year. The lacquer is about 90% and ther is minimal denting. The bell has never sustained any significant damage and the garland is in excellent condition. Just serviced and ready for a new home.
The tuba is provided with the original, plywood hard case and a Miraphone C4 mouthpiece.
