B&S Perantucci PT-20P 4197 5V Piston CC Tuba


Sold Out

Item Details

This is an easy playing medium size piston CC tuba made by B&S in Germany. The piston valves ensure easy slurring and its large bell has a classic broad American sound in the style of the old York tubas.  I bought this from Robert Tucci.  It's a new instrument but he squirreled it away at Lausmann Mundstücke to use for testing new tuba mouthpieces fresh from the machinist.
