.......that you are the only tuba player in a quality 40+ member wind band. Let us also assume that you play a BBb tuba and has about $10K to spend on a new tuba. What kind of sound would you want and what kind of Tuba would you chose to achieve that sound?
I would chose a Miraphone 187 with 5RV which should give me a good foundation and blends well with the band, yet clear and projective enough for fast passages.
Thank you for any input. This would help me to make an important choice with regards to an instrument purchase for the band.
Have a nice day.
