I'm currently playing an Alex F and though I love the sound, I'm looking for an F tuba with a more hospitable low range. I play in a quartet which includes a couple of Willson Eb's, and they're super horns, but I'd like to stay with an F just to make things easier on my little brain. If anyone out there has had any experience with either of the Willson F's, your comments would help motivate me to make the trip to DEG. I noticed the rotary version is a slightly smaller bore, is there a big difference between the sound of the rotary and the piston version?
