Well, I played the Hirs for several years. It was a love hate relationship.
The horn is great, in my opinion, for one thing. Performing in a euph section in a band.
I think it falls short as a solo instrument, because of the sound quality
and falls short as an orchestral tenor tuba. Too much bark in the low range.
Try a besson, it has the sound,
try a yamaha 642, best compensation range that i have played
