Thread: Anyone have a 6-valve C French Tuba fingering chart?

  1. Anyone have a 6-valve C French Tuba fingering chart?

    I'm not having much luck searching the web for one. If anyone knows where I can find one, I'd certainly appreciate it.

    Best to you!

    I see it follows the early Saxhorn pattern where the 3rd valve is 2 whole steps rather than the modern 1-1/2.

    3 notes and the truth.

    1966 Besson 181 highly modified New Standard, early model Wick 4AL
    1918 Hawkes & Son euph 3&1 original
    1917 Conn C/D/Eb mellophone original
    1915 York Bb tenorhorn original, Bach 5GS

  4. It is. the OP have not asked for a modern saxhorn finguering, so I just posted the traditional french tuba finguering.

    I find it interesting that the fingering chart doesn't show any use of the 5th valve at all. I don't play that instrument but it intrigues me... where would the 5th valve be used?
    Avid horn collector, check my profile to see what I've got (not enough room to reasonably squeeze 14 horns down here!)

  6. The 5th valve is like a 2nd valve, I use It on my French Tuba the same way as the 6th valve on my F tuba, just to "tune" some notes.

  7. Thank-you! I am trying out a Courtois to see if I want to buy it and this is very helpful.

  8. Do It! I love mine and would never sell It!
