You are correct about Miraphones. To me, I feel that I'm restricted, especially when playing in the extreme low register. Compared to an old Rudolf Meinl BBb I played on last year, the Miraphone doesn't come close. Just my $0.02 worth on Miraphones. Anyways, concerning Amatis, I purchased one in '96, model ABB323 (got rid of it shortly thereafter)and was very disappointed, but that's what I get buying a tuba I've never played on before. Definitely learned my lesson that time!
