For years I owned and played a Rudolf Meinl 3/4 CC and a Rudolf Meinl 5/4 CC. For all practical purposes, the Rudi 3/4 CC was my F tuba. The tone quality, agility and ease of high-register playing made it unnecessary to own an F tuba. Before I was able to buy the 5/4 CC, the 3/4 CC was my only horn, and I really was not suffering at all ;^) Personally, I'd have very little use for the PT-10 if I had a Rudi 3/4, they are similar-enough in size. The PT-10 would be a good companion to a larger BBb or CC.
