Posted by Band Director w/ WAY too much money to spend on August 28, 1999 at 12:20:51:
I am in the process of get 6 new BBb tubas for my High school group. I have a rather liberal budget but perfer not to spend over $30,000 for all six ($5000 per instrument, give or take $500) I have been looking at the Sanders imperial, VMI 2103, VMI 3301, Miraphone Kaiser, and St Petersburg BBb tubas. I know most of the skinny on these horns except for the Sanders and Miraphone Kaiser. Could I get some educated feed back on any of these tubas?
I am particularly interested in who exactly makes Sanders Imperials - The guys at CMC didn't really care to tell me when I asked.
