FS: BMB 6/4 CC

Postby Ethan M » Sat Mar 11, 2017 4:04 pm

Hey all!

I'm putting my lacquered, 5-valved BMB 6/4 CC up for sale. I bought this horn about a year ago from a professional and member of this forum, and have used it extensively in bands since then. I've used it mostly in large ensembles, such as my university's wind ensemble. It's a joy to play in full ensemble settings! It's got a big, bold sound that makes for a great foundation. As with any horn this size, it takes a bit of work to play in tune, but it's absolutely manageable. The horn comes with the original gig bag and hard case, which are in good shape, though the hard case is missing a handle. The thumb-ring, which I elected not to use, is included along with a pair of screws. I found it easier to play this horn with a tuba rest, so I also have a BBC tuba rest that I am willing to part with. I used either the (included) Barth Helleberg or my (not included) Sellmansberger Orchestra Grand cup and shank with the horn, and found both to be good matches.

Condition:
This horn is in quite good 'used' condition. I was told that it served as a demo horn for the company before it was sold to a previous owner. There is evidence of some bell damage that has been repaired, some dings in the bell, and some imperfection near the bottom of the bell stack. Other than that, there's a minor dent in the bottom bow, but not much else to speak of! If you look at the album link at the bottom, I tried to show those imperfections. The lacquer is in good condition, and I just spent a few hours cleaning it out, so the slides and valves are in great working order.

Improvements I had made:
--Valves realigned a few months ago.
--First valve slide vented
--Small length of tubing inserted between the MTS and valve section to eliminate a bore gap. This is something my professor recommended having done to help with an intonation issue I was having. The second-space C was running rather sharp, but this fixed that issue, and improved intonation in general. The tubing is removable, though I haven't tried to move it since it was put in.

Location, Price and Shipping
--Horn is located in or near Lincoln, Nebraska.
--Asking price is $5500
--I still have the box this was shipped to me in, so I am willing to ship (preferably Greyhound) at the buyer's risk and expense.

Let me know if there are other photos you need, or any questions you might have. Feel free to make me an offer.... the worst I can say is no!

This horn was previously mine. Seriously a great tuba for someone who wants a big CC tuba and doesn't want to spend a ton of money. Someone should buy this quickly!

Thanks Andy! I should've also mentioned that I'm willing to drive a reasonable distance to meet a buyer halfway and avoid shipping. Let me know what you've got in mind and we can work something out!
