Item specifics

Condition: Used Brand:

j howard foot

Up for auction is this J. Howard Foote Eb tuba caputured at a garage sale and afterwards played by a local tuba player for a while. The valves and slides are in working well. Cosmetically is as shown in the photographs with dents and worn finish.
Comes with what may be original mouthpiece and liar. It still sounds good (I'm a tuba player myself).
The dates engraved on this may prove interesting.

Dimensions are approximately 34.5" h x 18"w x 12.5" diameter bell

Engraving is as follows:
