I am planning to purchase a tuba for use in a community concert band of about 50 members.
We play indoors and outdoors. I live in Bismarck, ND. There isn't a tuba at a retail site in the state. Due to this, I am trying to put together the specificatiions for the proper tuba to buy to fit the need.
At this point the following seems like what is needed. A 4/4 BBb, 3 valve (preferably front with a front facing bell. We play for enjoyment. This rules out a higher level instrument. I feel that a good used tuba in King, Conn or Miraphone should fit the bill.
I would greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions any one might have for this project.
