Spend a little money and come to the Texas Bandmasters Association meeting in San Antonio the end of July. Your band director should be able to get you a badge as a participant. The dates of the show are, for the public: July 29, 30, and 31. Most of the major tubas will be represented.
If you would like someone to play some of the horns for you, come by the Houston Band booth. I will have my horn there playing a few notes when I can. I would be glad to talk with you and to listen or even play a horn or two for you so you can get an idea of what to look for when you get closer to the purchase. E-mail me off list if you'd be interested.
