The 186 CC is about the best all-around tuba in the world today.

The 186 features a .772" bore plus a 17.75" upright yellow brass bell with a nickel-silver garland for excellent resonance.
There is significant red rot on the knuckles between the rotors. the leadpipe has been replaced, and the horn was recently cleaned and serviced. The bell had come dents on the bell, this has been repaired. This horn is still a great player! A great professional model instrument for the price!
