I just looked in my Cerveny catalog and found six models of their big BB flats. All six have bores of .835" and bells of 19 3/4". The model numbers are 601; 701; 691; 693; and 696. All of these are 4 rotary valves except the 691-3. The 691-4 is available, also. I think these six tubas fall into the "Kaiser" class and are close to 6/4 in size. I have owned and played only the fabulous 601-5MR CC tuba, but I suspect these big BB flats are of similar quality. Maybe Jay has tested some of these horns.
