I went to the custom web site to read about the PT Eb tuba. How much are they? How are they? It says 3/4 or 4/4 size. Is that two different models or is it a big 3/4? The Nirschl sounds pretty good too. Any comments?

From the web site:

Perantucci "EEb" tuba, 3/4 or 4/4 size, large .745" to .825" graduated bore, non-compensating, 4 piston and 1 rotary valves, 18" wide-tapered bell.

The new B&S Perantuci PT-22P is the latest in EEb tuba design. This instrument features a "York" style wrap, large piston valve group, and a medium flared bell for maximum projection. The PT-22P is at home in large ensemble as well as chamber and solo settings.

Walter Nirschl WN-20

The WN-20 is CMC's first exclusive EEb tuba. This instrument features 4 front action piston valves - 1 rotary valve, graduated bore of .750" to .807", and a 17.75" "American Style" bell. The WN-20 has lightening fast response with the clarity of an F tuba, superb intonation, and a wonderful expansive low register. This instrument is so versatile, it's at home in any musical situation. Available in brass lacquer and silver plate.
