B&S 3100W PT-12 6V Rotary F Tuba


Item Details

This is a medium-large 6-valve rotary F tuba made by B&S in Germany.  We bought this one from Robert Tucci, so it's properly stamped "Perantucci" on the bell.  The true model number being 3100W, this is the sort of tuba one might play as a soloist, in chamber ensembles, and in smaller orchestras.  Use it in a larger ensemble if you seek a lighter sound than its slightly larger PT-15 / 5099 F brethren.

  • 1st valve left hand is whole step in C
  • 2nd valve left hand is 1/2 step in C
  • Lacquer finish
  • Includes B&S gig bag, sold without mouthpiece
  • Tapered Valve Bore : 748"-.826" / 19-21 mm
  • Body & bell: yellow brass
