I used to play only BBb (about 20 years ago), now I see there is much emphasis on the CC.
What are the benefits of the different keys? Is the instrument more easily learned, depending on the key? Or is it the sound,etc?? I also notice that alot of players have tubas in several keys...

As I need to start over again, and played both BBb and E way back when, is there an advantage to going with one key over the other?
