My Gronitz F tuba recently survived six loadings and six unloadings on a complicated flight from Little Rock to Victoria, BC, and back in its Walt Johnson (medium tuba) case. Although I don't believe it was dropped from a height of 20 feet, I watched a couple of times as disgusted handlers tried to toss it. Nary a scratch (except a couple on the case).
