Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreEdmonton South, Alberta
I've tried out a bunch of smaller tubas, and I rented this one recently. It has a suprisingly big sound for such a small tuba (the case is the size of the smallest Yamaha, and that's one of the smallest out there). The tuba seems to be put together the right way, not as good as Yamaha can do it, but far better than you would expect for $1800 less! The valves and slides aren't very smooth, but I've noticed this in a few cheaper tubas recently. I think a shop could take care of that. It has large wheels mounted well outboard on the case, so it's sturdy to tow, and has two handles, unlike a Yamaha. It should be a decent horn for students and outdoor gigs.
