As said already, most people invest in a good quality CC first and then buy the best F they can afford. I was lucky enough to pick-up a used Hirsbrunner F for a fraction of what a new one would have cost. Finding a used one is difficult at best because no one ever wants to sell them! They also don't make many new F's simply because they are so expensive and many people aren't willing to pay that much for an F. It sucks they cost so much, but, I wouldn't trade my Hirsbrunner CC or F for any other tubas out there! Just be patient and if you really want one, it'll eventually happen.
