I played a Mirafone BBb for four years and had no complaints about it. The pitch was good, the D in the staff was the only one that ever bothered me. The sound was very nice. It had a nice centered pretty sound. That horn was better than a lot of pro CC tubas that I have tried. I guess the complaints people might have with the sound are in concept. It is more of the European Saxhorn style where as there is a trend toward the smaller bored but larger American Contra-bugle style horns. It all depends on what you are looking for, I did end up with a large contrabugle CC, but I had no problem with the sound of my mirafone.
sorry if I rambled,
