I have played a friend's PT6 quite a lot and I found it to be a very fine horn. Its intonation is almost faultless. I got a chance to meet Floyd Cooley from the San Fransicso Symphony when he came here to Australia in 1997. He said that the PT6 was a superb instrument, easily on a par with his handmade Walter Nirschl York copy.... big words!
Opinions on the Perantucci "brand" in Australia are generally high with most professionals choosing the play Perantucci F tubas in particular (Steve Rosse for instance).
