GC: "A Monster Eb tuba with great [everything]...

Postby bloke » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:18 pm

If you can get someone to build this one for you, I believe you would likely be pleased:

I could probably also toss in a .750" bore rotor for a 5th valve as well for a few more $$.

I’m not asking you to actually consider doing this, but am curious. Could this set be used to build a piston cimbasso??? I got to play a Kalison piston F one about 15 years ago and it was incredible!!!

I'm sure it could...The bore size is probably at the upper limit of what I would consider appropriate, but - that having been said - MOST cimbassos which have been sold (Jinbao, I'm thinking) are large bore.

Bloke,

A appreciate the time and thought you have put into this post, but I already have an opportunity to do a part new, part old rebuild from the person I got my current horn from. Still, your ideas really look good. Honestly, though, I'm hoping for a new build, something good, finished, and under warranty.

Even so, thanks for the time and the heads-up.

Thanks for looking.
What I'm trying to do is to not turn ORIGINAL threads into commercials.
I'm seeing that going on here, and it's annoying...so I'm trying to not do it myself.

Not like you don't already have enough to do (and the whole time vs. money vs. ROI thing), but methinks this could be a good bloke-completed project that could sell. If it played really well, then buff/lacquer or silver plate, then sell it.

Hmm... Satin silver with bright silver trim and bell interior... A fancy schmancy 4p 1r EEb Bloke-a-phone... who wouldn't want to own one?
