Surely the seller has had a mistake!

I will bet that this is NOT a BBb horn. There's not enough tubing. It's gotta be an Eb or an F.

Unless that's a VERY large instrument, I do believe that you're on to something...

Look at the tuning slide and think of Chuck's Mirafone that's for sale...

...Eb

If he can play just a l'il bit, of course an Eb tuba will blow an open Bb...

at first I was inclined to agree with you, but according to the listing, it's 40 inches tall with a 14inch bell, so I would say its a tuba.

Chuck,

As much as folks sneer and jeer at that seller, I've bought stuff from him before...It is what it is...

Bid on the pictures alone (ignoring the description), and assume (from his clearly spelled out feedback) that the item will arrive in somewhat worse shape than it appears in the pictures.

Ich denke auch, daß das Messingrohr länger sein würde, wenn es im Ernst eine BBbTuba wäre...

They said that they didn't think it was a BBb tuba.

I would bet heavily that it is an Eb tuba...If it were an F tuba, it would be difficult (though, admittedly, Mirafone accomplished it with their tiny 180 model) to find "room" for a horizontal main slide. Further, 3V F's are a bit rare, though 3V Eb's are not. Finally, if some bohemian blowhard determined that it was a BBb tuba by discovering that they could honk a "Bb" on it, this couldn't have been accomplished on an F tuba.
