Being neither a runner boy for Joe nor an F tuba fan, I still take a great interest in these GDR era instruments, that were and are very common among pro tubists over here. A section mate of mine played this model. OK, it had spiral springs, but the instrument basically was the same.
I happen to gave a 1985 catalogue, which documents this very model. A scan in high resolution .pdf format can be found at the link given below here. The file also documents the 4+2 F version, the 4 valve CC, and the 4+1 BBb, all from the top-pro B&S line.
