I bought a st petersburg from the tuba exchange about 2 years ago and i have mixed feelings. I must say that it had excellent sound and response, but the TE valve linkage sucked. i have heard from many sources that the version from die tuba is the best of the three versions i have encountered. the only negative things i can say about it are it is uncomfortable to sit with (at least until you find a way to avoid or remove the brace at the bottom of the horn, and the te valve linkage sucks.
on the lighter side, the tone is good, it projects well, is easy to play, and light to carry.
