In Reply to: DOES ANYONE HAVE AN ORIGINAL BBb YORK??? posted by JOHN on March 30, 2001 at 18:04:43:
I know of no York (CC much less BBb) 6/4 instruments in a 5 piston valve configuration. I do know that the Thein brothers custom-built a largish CC in 5 pistons for the tubist in the Danish Royal Opera. But an original York BBb in 5 pistons? I don't think so.
5-piston BBb and CC instruments are very very uncommon.
