I want to buy an F tuba in the very near future, but I'm a bit confused. I play a German style F right now, and like the sound a great deal. The problem is that some of the more "American" horns, like the Yamaha 621 have a really attractive easiness about them. Although it is harder to change the sound characteristics of a yamaha, the ease of the low register is really attractive. Any comments?
