You're right. The only BBb to CC cut I want to do, is one that will take a marginally usable or unusable BBb and make it into a really good, solid CC tuba. For that reason, I have only done one so far, where I took a 3-top-piston Conn BBb made prior to 1920 that had little or no historical value, and that had suspect intonation at best, and turned it into a 4-piston/ 1 rotor CC. The tuba is not perfect, but it plays better as a CC than it ever did as a BBb.
