FS/FT Conn Frankentuba $1500

I have a Conn BBb Frankentuba that was built by Art Hovey out of a Conn upright tuba and some Conn sousaphone valves. It's a massive horn with a 22" bell and 4 front action valves and it has served me great so far. I'm only parting with it to get a CC. I'll sell it or trade for a CC tuba. $1500 obo. Located in Florence, AL.

This is the tuba on Art Hovey's website. I have can give more pictures upon request.

How is the intonation? Also, what size/kind of CC are you looking for?

Intonation is really decent for a frankentuba. I've never had any issues with it on that front. I just don't play it anymore. As for the CC, I'm looking for anything 4/4 or bigger, 5 valves preferred, valve type doesn't matter.
