My perfect tuba would be great. A 20 inch bell, full size, maybe even 5/4 or 6/4. The bore would be from .720 to .800, and would have 4 front action valves. (short action preferably) It would have a dark, thick laquer, so you can have that full rich deep tone....kind of like one you would get from a Conn 20K sousa. I think the 20K is probably the kind of tone and sound that I like, I like the puffy, airy fluff sound you get out of it, and the lower notes are always rich and full. The high ones dont lack too much either. But, thats just my dream tuba.
