let me truly explain the difference between the two. Both tubas are exactly the same size in bell, body and everything. these are the true differences.
S Model
1. brass tuning slides,,,, nickel silver on pro
2. the tubes where the braces connect are lacquered/brass,,,,nickel silver on pro
3. plain back rotor caps,,,,engraved on pro
4. plain ferrules where main tubing is soldered,,,,2 lines around top and bottom of ferrule on pro
5. both have nickel silver bell ring
6. i have found that the pro is slightly easier to center but has a brighter sound
7. both have the same new DVS system which is made of a plastic end with a stainless mini ball in it and i stainless screw that holds it onto the arm
8. both have unidirectional arms on all 4 rotors

i honestly like the sound of the S model better
