I purchased (OK, my dad bought it) my Mirafone 5 valve in 1980 or so and still receive great satisfaction playing it, however I am curious as to what model I own. The serial # is clearly marked on the bell, but I have no idea how to determine the model. Anyone?...
When I was in high scool it seemed enough to my fellow tubists that I OWNED my own tuba. Now-a-days it seems everyone is quite versed on their instrument's model, bore size, bell diameter, etc.
