There's another of Dr. Young's pages on optimizing tuning at the link below. In it, he in passing mentions a 3-valve setup that results in (2,1,4) semitone descent for each valve, respectively instead of the traditional (2,1,3) semitone operation.
Since I earn a living as a computer geek, this power-of-two setup of the valves has me intrigued. Has anyone ever encountered a tuba set up like this or experimented with such a setup?
