I got to try one out a few weeks ago, and was quite impressed with the short, stubby, York-like instrument. The sound, response, and dynamic capability was better than a lot of new horns out there. Alas, I spoke with Thomas Getzen about it just a week ago, and he told me they have ceased production of tubas, and have no plans to start up again. If you can find a new one at a store, this is probably your last chance to own a new one.
