When I was in college in CA, we had a weekly tuba class every Thursday. During one of these classes we decided to do a tuba comparison. We lined up everyone's horns in a row. One by one, we each played one etude and 3 excerpts on EVERY horn. The rest of the class sat with their backs to the player and took notes.
Much like what Leland suggested, it was uncanny how each player sounded his/her best on their own horn, with just a few exceptions.
