BMB 6/4 CC J-865 $4200

Postby flyingdogs » Thu Oct 04, 2018 11:08 pm

Hello! I have a Big Mouth Brass 6/4 CC tuba, model J-865 that I'm looking to sell. It's four pistons with a dependent fifth rotor. I recently got the horn sonic-cleaned a few months ago, and I just got it back from the shop for dent removal. It has an even sound in all registers- dark, round, and present. Like all 6/4s, it has its set of intonation quirks. The first valve slide moves freely, and a rod on the second valve slide makes it easily accessible. The other slides are also right there if you choose to use them. I'm selling for financial reasons. My main horn is a do-it-all, and, in my current situation, it is hard to justify keeping this one. I have been successful using this horn as part of a section in wind ensemble, as the only tuba in orchestras, and even in smaller chamber groups.

The horn comes with a Helleberg-style mouthpiece, soft case, and hard case. I'm in SoCal and willing to drive a few hours to meet a serious buyer. Otherwise, shipping will be via Greyhound.

An Excellent deal on what seems to be a great horn. Having owned a BMB 6/4, and played one of the CC's, I'd say this is quite a bargain for someone looking for a great looking and playing 6/4.

What does "dependent rotor" mean?

The Dependent rotor is similar to what you would find on a Dependent rotor Bass Trombone; meaning, the valve is placed within the loop of a separate valve (in this case, the 4th valve). It means the valve wont be operable without using the 4th valve as well, but could also free up the resistance of the main bugle of the tuba by having fewer valves to blow through.
