Many old funky tubas are big question marks.
Take advantage of the BBC reputation and the fact that - once you're ready to move away from the $475 instrument - reselling it will, at minimum , put you back at dead even.
The $475 instrument is a very fine "bird in the hand". You can learn to play tuba with it without wondering if "I'm playing wrong" or whether "the tuba is malfunctioning". It will be you because that sousaphone WORKS. Just go get it. It's even U.P.S.-able.
