FS: B&S 56AFT $8,000

Postby TJGraf » Fri Nov 10, 2017 3:15 pm

For sale is my B&S 56AFT. I purchased this horn at ITEC 2016 with the guidance of Aaron Tindall and Derek Fenstermacher. The horn is in great mechanical condition and only has a few cosmetic dings in easy-to-remove places. About a month ago, I had a Saturn water key put on the main slide, which opened up the low range noticeably and made the horn a little more free blowing and smooth. It has a big, open sound and keeps the color of a traditional rotary valve F tuba.

When I bought it, they were selling for around $11,000 new (I don’t know the current pricing but I can’t imagine it being much different). I’m asking $8,000, which includes the B&S gig bag the horn came with and some great Cuban food if you come pick it up in Miami! I am also willing to discuss shipping.

Pictures will be posted this evening when I get back to my computer.

If you’re interested, send me an message here on tubenet or an email at tjg84@miami.edu" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank

Fascinating. How does the Saturn spit valve open up the low range, and make the horn more free blowing and smooth? I mean, it's just a valve soldered over a hole.

I’m the wrong person to ask about how the equipment works; I have not studied the physics behind it. This is just my observation on how my horn felt/feels to play before and after the key was added. I had it put on per Dr. Tindall’s recommendation, and multiple players who are familiar with my horn said they felt the same difference.
