WTB: .615"/.650" id/od tubing OR B&H euph 3rd comp. slide

Postby funkhoss » Thu Oct 25, 2018 5:57 am

Hi All,

For years, I've had some pieces of rubber tubing holding the third valve compensating slide on my older Besson/B&H euphonium in an extended position, in order to make the "low C" (134 combination) more in tune. However, those rubber tubing pieces are now rotting, and I think it's time to actually make a proper "longer" tuning slide.

So, what I need is one of two things. I'd either like to find some tubing to make longer slide legs, or another third valve compensating slide that I can disassemble and use to the same end. The tubing, to the best of my measurements, would need to be .615" inner diameter and .650" (or .648" according to my calipers) outer diameter, with the outer diameter of course being the more important dimension. Anyone have tubing like this laying around? Or, the third valve compensating slide I think would work from ANY English made Besson/B&H compensating euphonium. A slide from a current production German made instrument would not work, however.

If you have either some tubing of those dimensions or an extra tuning slide laying around, please let me know: funkhoss@gmail.com.
