I was excited when I heard this tuba was available out there, but only until I saw the bell-front configuration. Everyone I've ever known who owned a Kruspe tuba raved about it's sound - even with all the extra plumbing it'd have been a find, my sense though is in this case with the bell-front all bets are off there. The guy I bought my very first tuba from (Norm Bartold in So Cal) had a Kruspe f that my dim memory tells me was the sweetest-sound I have "ever" heard from a tuba. Hopefully someone stateside has the cajones to get it and we equipment weenies will hear more of it.
