I played Roger Bobo's little gold-plated Yamaha F and it was the best F i've ever played in my lfe, i mean..DAMN, it was a smoooth and all great and that.
I own a Mirafone F tuba it belong to Cherry Beauregard with whom I studied for one year and it's a great F, very in tune and better than any PT-10s I've ever played.
So I guess the player could "train" the instrument, more or less.
You are what you eat, and tubas are what they get.
