I'll second that 5v VMI (model 3302). Got one, works great, bigger sound than almost any other 4/4 tuba, great pppp sound.
Can anybody here say if VMI/B&S is checking out future possibilities for BBb versions of the PT-6 and PT-7? Everyone talks about CC tubas being generally preferred because of orchestral keys, but most players are in bands; by the same argument, BBb tubas would be better suited to band key signatures. Is there market potential for high-quality BBb tubas?
If not, that explains why I'm not in marketing! :)
