Description: Tuba - 1939 York CC 4/4 for sale
Am selling a 1939 4/4 York factory-original CC tuba. i.e this has not been cut-down.
Original owner was Arnold Jacobs who then sold it to Bob Tucci in 1966. It was then bought by the Principal Tuba of the New Zealand SO in about 1981 who then sold it on to me in 2000.
Bob Tucci told me there were only a dozen or so of these factory-original 4/4 Yorks made.
It has 4 piston valves, and a tuning mechanism on the 4th valve slide.
It has plenty of lacquer wear but is essentially in great shape. Plays really well with an amazing sound.
It comes with a gig bag and a well-worn plywood trunk.
Price is $US8000 + shipping (probably about $US300 to the US).
