comment Sousaphone repair suggestions
It's possible to replate it after soldering it, but I don't know the details of how it's done. Local music stores that sell band instruments can usually do that.

comment Digital Pianos vs Old Upright Pianos for classical music
I've had a Yamaha P60 on an ocean-going sailboat for several years and it's as good as new. Not as good as a new acoustic piano, but still good. Good advice on having it checked out by a tuner. Even if the piano is cheap or free, it's worth it.

comment Digital Pianos vs Old Upright Pianos for classical music
That's true, but I have used old pianos that are so far out of whack that it is nothing but a distraction to play them. It would be a good idea to play the old upright (or get someone else to, if the buyer is a beginner) for a while, loudly and softly, to see how what the action is like and how it holds the tuning.
