One little advantage to this, given where you live and depending on your haggling abilities is that if you bought at tuba at the Brasswind, you could have it shipped to you and avoid paying sales tax. At say, 7%, this would save you about $350 on a $5000 tuba or nearly $500 on a $7000 one. But please, don't let a couple hundred bucks be a significant factor in which tuba you end up deciding on--many will tell you that the "right" tuba is worth immeasurably more than just "a" tuba.
