I don't have a tuba yet, but I haven't played a CC yet where I was satisfied with it's low register (no, I haven't looked around much) and many BBb's have only four valves. I was thinking specifically of a St. Petersberg, but the question was hypothetical. And to answer your question, I thought that adding a fifth valve would help with tuning as well as low C and B.
