Used Marching Brass Specials

Occasionally, our manufacturers contact us with some overstock specials. The list below features various King marching instruments that have been used by drum corps, as demo instruments at conventions, or by various other performing groups. This is a great opportunity to supplement your marching instrumentation at a fraction of the regular price. The chart shows the model number, description, quantity currently available, and the price. If you are interested, you must speak with your PMC road representative or contact Eric Matzat at (417) 234-2524 or Please let us know if we can assist in any way.
