The supplementary information is quite interesting. I made my first reply on basis of the initially mentioned need for a 4th valve.
If the kid is smart, and if he understands the theory behind diatonic scales, then I would see no reasons not to start him on a CC.
But finding a CC of the PT-1 magnitude and quality might be hard within the $3000 limit unless you go for used tubas. I know, that I differ with Tubanurse on this, but if CC then nothing less than 5 valves would do the job.
