The point I was trying to make is that NONE of my horns are what I consider to be usefull in serious ensemble playing. All have intonation problems and quite frankly, I am not what I feel to be the caliber of musician to quality for such serious work. I like the King bell-front mainly because it gives me the projection of the forward facing bell without the bulk of a sousa. The sousa is just a lot to lug around. They're great for those time when you have to stand to play but don't make much sense otherwise. I forgot to mention, all of my tubas/sousa are Eb instruments.
