That version of the PT-4 had a 19" bell and was about 42" tall,
as opposed to the current version's 35". It was much more along the
lines of traditional "German" style tubas. The ones I've played
seemed to me to have a little more edge to the sound and better
projection than the new model. The new model seems to have better
intonation and quicker response. To put it another way, the new
model would be handier in a quintet but, my opinion, the older model
is probably a better orchestral horn.
