Wear & Tear Observations: This instrument is in a good condition for its age. There has been a repair made from the bell to the bottom bow. The repair has been done very well but has left the instrument with a fairly large, obvious mark.

There is a small amount of wear to the lacquer and a few scratches and dents from general use, the usual you would expect from a second hand Tuba.

There are some dents in the bell from where the mouthpiece has been dropped on to it. This instrument was used professionally in the forces.

Supplied with

This instrument is supplied in its original case with wheels and two handles. A silverplated unmarked Mouthpiece is also included.
