Conn BBb 5J 4 Valve Bell Up Piston Tuba Ser#402598

Additional Information: This is a great playing tuba!  It has a nice fat sound to it and plays well up and down the register.  Overall it is in very nice shape with some bumps and bruises from typical player wear for horns of this size.  There is a patch on the bottom third valve tuning slide by the water key and a brace missing from the bottom of the bell to the inside body wrap (brace not included).  The bell has a decent wave across the top where the lip was at one point pushed down and someone has done some light repair work to try to bring that back. It plays beautifully with a full Conn sound! This is a freight item only please contact us for a shipping quote.
