It was a fun (!!!) little tuba, and actually was the SECOND one that I purchased...
' got the first one (Wichita Band - 1975), and built a fifth valve for it... ' sold it and bought another one (barely used - 1978) and built a BETTER 5th valve for that (the "Bishop") one. ' have done much better since (with 5th valve add-ons) as that was well over two decades ago, and back when I considered myself to be a teacher/player and not an entrepreneur/fool.
YES, I like 184 tubas. I always speak in their favor. I almost got my FIRST one back a year ago, but its owner was absolutely INSISTENT on donating it to a school, so I suggested the most deserving school in town.
