This is a desirable early version of the one piece flange TB-1 with the slightly thicker “Fat Boy” rim. This example is quite clean and is all original expect for the head and the modern Prucha flange that was cut by the Huber shop to accommodate the wider rim. A possibly original skin head is included, as well as the very broken original flange.

It sounds and plays well in the present tenor configuration, but the neck doesn’t fit perfectly with the new Prucha flange. Given that the next owner will likely convert it, I opted to not have the neck cut to fit that more optimally.

Comes shipped in a period case from a Kel Kroyden. Thanks for looking and please reach out with any questions.
