FS: 6/4 Conn/MM/Kanstul BBb tuba $3500

Postby Adam C. » Tue Aug 13, 2019 7:29 pm

I am selling a unique 6/4 BBb tuba. Converted from a Conn 20J, it has a 4 valve MM valveset with easy slide access. Includes an unlacquered 20" Kanstul upright bell and the original recording bell, plus a custom Cronkite bag (maroon color, fits with the upright bell only).

Pull ring on first slide. 4th valve slide is well-aligned and has ~9-10 inches of easy pull, allows for nice adjustments down to low C. Typical large Conn slightly flat 3rd partial F, 1-3 to raise pitch or just blow it high in louder passages. High Bb is high, likes to be played 2-3. Otherwise very accessible intonation.

This instrument will put out some sound, either velvety string bass or athletic crunch depending on what you give it. Recording bell option makes for a perfect Dixieland or outdoor gig horn. Kanstul bell looks and sounds great.

Located in CT, willing to drive a reasonable distance to meet buyer. Buyer covers any shipping and insurance.

Pictures include a PT-6 for size comparison.

Edited to include asking price of $3500. Feel free to make offer, not looking for trades.
