    FS Sterling Virtuouso at ITEC

    I've listed my Sterling for sale on Tubenet.

    I will have it with me at ITEC. If anyone is interested, please contact me through the forum. Asking $4,500 negotiable.

  2. I have played Don's horn. It is a good one. It has the Bauerfeind valve set and the older style trigger assembly. This is a very good deal!...Doug

  3. How is a Bauerfeind valve set identified and was this a Sterling upgrade on the Virtuoso? I've always wondered if my Sterling 1065 is similarly equipped. Thanks!

    The original valve sets were built by Sterling (I watched one being assembled when I was there in the 1990's). They had a round valve guide that was secured by a little tiny set screw in the top of the piston. Bauerfeind uses the rectangular style common to most horns.

  5. Thanks for the clarification Dave! My horn definitely has the original Sterling valve set.

    I've had a chance to play Don's horn at Mike Milnarik's "Tuba Euphonium Workshop" today. This is a very nice horn. I also play a Sterling, but the "standard" configuration. Don's horn has a somewhat warmer and more focused sound than mine which is very appealing (I also like the sound of mine, but it is brighter). This is a good deal for someone who is ready to step up. -Carroll
