C disguised as a Bb

Postby bloke » Fri Aug 25, 2017 9:13 pm

I feel fairly confident that this is a B&S made C with a Bb conversion slide.
I also have a strong hunch that the bell would fit a B&S F tuba.

That setup sure looks like the Bb conversion slide that came with my first Mirafone in the 70s. I have not seen another, but it worked - not real well, but it worked.
