    Cool! I still have it--I haven't heard back from Snorlax, let me check with him to be sure he isn't wanting to buy it, and if not, we can work out details. Thanks!

    I live in Pendleton, not too far away from you, and I work in Indianapolis. I’ll send you a PM with my cell number if you’re interested and would want more info by text. 🙂

    You’re right, this case is very similar to the case for my Mack Brass euphonium, although it is quite a lot smaller, and the overall package is quite a bit lighter. When I get the chance, I’ll try...

    Neither, it’s lacquered brass. Sorry if this is hard to tell in the photos!
  8. FS: Schiller "British Brass Band" 3-valve compensating baritone

    Sold, thanks!

    Since purchasing my Wessex "Maly" travel euphonium, this horn never sees any playing time, so it's time for it to find a new home. I bought it new from Jim Laabs Music and have...

    I apologize for the lengthy delay in replying...yes, I am! I'd been playing the tuba more in preparation for a Christmas concert, but in the last couple of weeks I've been more euphonium-focused and...

    Shipping crate from Wessex:

    I received the "Maly" in an incredibly short time. I placed the order on Friday, 11/23. They shipped the horn in the early afternoon (UK time) Monday, and it arrived at my door in Indiana in the...

    I did...$1400 instead of $1750 for the lacquered version, this just barely put it in range of what I could spend. I was looking at the Mighty Gnome too (tornister CC tuba), hoping that one of them...

    Incidentally, I have switched mouthpieces back to the included one, which I am growing to love. I think it’s labeled “Wessex JT”, I assume for “junior tuba”. I wish they sold this one—I’m a...

    The threads on my Elf were clean and smooth right out of the box and the valves have worked great with minimal oiling. I did have a similar problem once with a Mack Brass tuba, but it turned out...

    Ghmerrill and others, would you expect an older used horn to be better in terms of false tone ability? All the used Eb tubas I’m finding are 3v horns as well. In my price range, I think I’d be...

    Another thought from me: there are probably two good reasons to buy an instrument (or anything, I suppose) for yourself. 1) it fills a need you have; 2) you just really like it.

    I had a chance to play one of these at NABBA in Ft. Wayne yesterday and I loved it! I didn't realize I needed another euphonium, now I'm coming up with excuses to buy this little beauty.
