Not all Alexander tubas have horrible intonation. My 163 CC only requires one alternate fingering and one slide push. Yes, I have played other Alex's that had more problems. Maybe I just got lucky.
BTW - Interestingly enough, the 5th valve on my Alex is a 1/2 step. Has anyone else seen this before?
