Rick, our definition of double brasses very much has been determined by the double horn.
As I write in my posting just above yours, the parallel configuration is only one of at least two options. The serial configuration allows for a gradual bore.
You might be right in your concept, that this is a plain 7 valve tuba, but the catalogued model name and the configuration clearly tell, that the ideology behind was to make a double tuba.
