' sorry for the RM typo...There are a lot of posts below this one about RM tubas, and I carelessly used the wrong abbreviation. Of course the Fafner is a Meinl Weston tuba.
What else did I say that contradicts anything you say here, other than your opinions of Willson tubas?
I think the MW Fafner will give Willson sellers a run for their money, except for those " Only piston tubas are cool."-people (folks who overlook many excellent rotary instruments) that I've spoken of in other threads.
