it is a VMI2103 not a 2301 and is VMI's model 103. the problem is that we added a 2 to the 103 because a Company in Texas was telling all the band directors there that their tuba was the same as ours and it is not.
you can visit by searching Vogtlandische Musikinstrumentanfabrik and you should get their web site.
the Hilgers model is a smaller BBb tuba that looks like a Miraphone. it is not the 103
