TE vs Die Tuba
TE: Has already shipped tuba's over and therefore less probrable that Tuba's are damaged during shipping. (shipping insurance can be purchased). Have piston valves (for those who enjoy that kind of thing)
Die Tuba: Has choices of raw, nickel or silver plating. Have choices of origional valves or of having them replaced by german valves. Have option of hard case or gig bag. Have rotary valves (for those who enjoy that kind of thing).
This is just what I have observed the sound of them shoudn't be better for either as they are all made in the same place. However because they are hand made I have been told that individual models are likely to play differently
