First, I play a BBb horn (Yamaha YBB641 to be exact) and one of the things that makes me interested in a CC tuba is the (up to now) little playing I have done in an orchestral setting. A BBb is a gas in the key of E major, lots of 2-3 combinations, difficult finger transitions and stuff. With a CC, my teacher has demonstrated to me how it is much easier.
Bottom line, what are you going to be playing? My son tells me it's a circle of fifths thingóbut then he's serious, I'm just a hobby player.
