I'm going to sell my B&S if anyone is interested. I've used this F Tuba for years and I love it in quintet and the typical orchestral pieces, but I simply don't need it as much anymore. It's got great intonation for an F tuba and petal C's and B flats pop out well, which are nice when the range is needed.
I can get by in quintet with my C Tuba and the F simply doesn't get played much. Plus, I'll never convince my wife we need a wakeboard boat with multiple tubas in the house.
It's a pre-Perantucci with 5 rotary valves. The 5th valve is on the right thumb unlike most of the older ones. It's raw brass and I don't polish it since it's got a nice vintage look to it.
It's got a hard case with a reinforced bell section. One cool thing about the case is the F fits nicely but I was also able to squeeze my HB-2 into it when flying.
If you're interested send me an email.
