Urgent Sell: Frankentuba - JinBao/Conn 20K 3/4 BBb - SOLD!

Cute, light BBb 3/4. It's leadpipe and first wrap are all custom, some bows from a King 1140, and finally a JinBao F body. It plays nicely, especially with a Helleburg-style mouthpiece. $800 OBO + shipping.

I've been using this as an experimental horn for larger valves on small tubage. Had it rented out last semester, but I need auto repairs done, and I have another 3/4 BBb. Gave some final tweaks to leadpipe and bracing. Cool little dixieland tuba :)

I bet those valves really make that thing nimble, and I'm glad you found a use for my old F tuba bell. It looks like a much better fit for a small BBb than an F! Every instrument J.c. makes is a good one, and this is a steal at that price. Someone is going to get a great horn!

Oh, man! That thing is cool.
What can you tell us about it?
Intonation issues?
Videos or recordings?
