I have gotten many calls on the Gronitz F tuba. I have ordered two more so in the meantime, I would be willing to sell this one and wait for the next batch for myself. It's a 5 valve (4+1) Brass. It has a big sound, but with a darkness and a warmth that I have not been able to get out of my Yamahas. The pitch is excellent and the high range has a nice ease about it. The 5th valve is a dual purpose valve. Ic can be tunes to a tritone, or to major third (like the old Mirafones). I have been using the tritone tuning with some interesting results. $5100, no case.
