Conn 20J BBb tuba, 3 valved, front bell.  Large bore, huge horn, but easy to manage and easy to blow.  If you aren’t into the recording bell, this bell can be turned around and the horn played like a French horn, giving you the flexibility of having that upright bell sound.   Valves are excellent…#2 valve was just professionally re-lapped.  The same repairman took the lead pipe off and completely de-dented and relacquered it. He also professionally patched a microscopic crack from a previous owner’s attempt at dedenting of  the tubing leading out of valve #3.  All bracings are tight…NO resolder work apparent.  Plenty of minor dentage throughout…from a previous owner.  My photos really  exaggerate their depth. Dents that remain are plentiful, yes, but they are all shallow, not affecting the round shape of the airstream throughout the horn.   The finish is extremely shiny.  The inside of the valves and the slides look almost like new.  The 20J has those  famous short stroke offset valves that are so difficult to make yet work so well!.  All the slides pull as they should. New corks on the spit valves.  Corks and felts looks good on the piston valves—they are NOT clanky—they are very fast and responsive.  Bell reads Conn Elkhart, Ind, USA.  Serial number is 878362, dating it to 1960.  COMES WITH THE TWO original WOOD CASES, in GOOD condition
