tuba players in germany play F tuba as a standard instrument and BBb tuba for larger stuff, so without a doubt auditions have been won using a BBb tuba there. ;-)
afaik, BBb tuba is still the only key used in Russia.
I think Everett Gilmore (sp) may have used a BBb. Steve Rosse of the Sidney Symphony had a 5/4 rudy meinl BBb though i have no idea if he ever played it in an audition.
