How to sell a used tuba 45

#1 Post by scout63 »

Not sure where to post this. My son and I built this for him to use during is DJ career in college.
We couldn't have made a better choice- thanks for all of the advice from folks on this forum.
The question now is - How do I get rid of this thing? What's a fair price for a used Tuba 45 with an Eminence 12" driver?
The thing is nicked up, with a few beer stains (think college house parties), but it still sounds like the day we built it.
No bites so far on Craigslist- I'm wondering if I should call around to the local pro audio places here in Nashville.

Thanks
Greg

Because it's not a name brand - you'll have to find someone who knows what it is. Or, you could reach out to those frat houses where your son used it and see if they would like their very own kick-ass sub.....

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

You could try selling it here, in the "for sale" section of this forum.

It's unfortunate, but It'll likely be easier to pull the driver out, sell it by itself, and scrap the enclosure.

Looking through your post history, looks like it's a 3012LF, a desirable driver. I don't need one. But, for the right price, I'll take it off your hands.

Where are you located?

What kind of wood did you use?
2 DR250s, 2 27" Lab15 T-60s, 2 30" Neo Titan 39s, 1 Autotuba...and looking for more!

1/2” birch plywood.
Located in Nashville.
I’ll tear it down at some point and sell the driver. Just hate for the cabinet to go to waste. Didn’t realize there was a for sale section. I’ll try it there. Would love to see a budding DJ put it to good use.
Thanks
Greg

Here's a vote for the strength of the cabinet design- the kid with the bandana is the DJ- the two kids in the background would be dancing atop the Tuba....

If anyone knows of a kid getting started in the business, please message me- this would be free to a good home with pick up in Nashville.
