Tom, every Zeiss tuba I have played has been exceptional. They are East German in origin, look alot like Alexanders, but the pitch has been way better. I found the sound to be very even over the entire scale. One that I played while I was in the military was one of the best BBb tuba's I have ever played. I wish I had bought it. I think they arequite good across the board. I play a Zeiss F tuba that has had major work done on it, ie; fifth valve added and dents removed. It plays very well, I would put it up against horns in the high price bracket. I wouldn't hesitae to try the instrument. Dave Fedderly doesn't sell junk, and my guess is it must be pretty good if he is showing it on the site. Try it first, but I wouldn't be suprised if you loved it.
