I find your comments very refreshing. This business about BB flat vs. CC,
or E flat vs. F has reached the point of being absurd. I personally play
CC tubas because I feel at home in that pitch. I play a gigantic four-rotary
valve Cerveny bass trombone in F because it feels "right" in that pitch.
I think a player who likes his tuba should love and respect his instrument,
regardless of its pitch.
