Miraphone Hagen 496 Tuba, with MTS Hard Case and Gig Bag

Due to a change in playing habits and my inability to be comfortable on the BBb tuba, I’ve decided to put up for sale my Miraphone 496 Hagen BBb tuba. It is a great instrument, and it has served me very well. I am the second owner, with the instrument originally being purchased from Dillon Music. Description of the instrument:


  • Key: BBb

  • Bore: .835″
  • Bell: 17.7″
  • Bell Material: Gold brass
  • Number of Valves: 4
  • Valve Position: Front

The tuba has just been cleaned, all new bumpers have been replaced, as well as a few dents taken out of the bell. There are some dents in the bottom bow, as shown in the photos below. Hard case and gig bag are in perfect condition.

Prefer cash, money order, or bank check. PayPal and Venmo can be taken, but all charges will be payed by purchaser. Located in Raleigh, NC. Will drive to meet someone, shipping is possible but at buyer’s expense. Please contact me if you are interested.
