I saw that as well, and all I have figured is that, due to the relatively small bore size for a four valved BBb (.6 something..), it is reffered to as 1/4. But still.. 1/4? In proportion to 4/4 to 5/4, that's not 1/4. Oh, well. Sounds interesting, I guess. Business ploy. Wouldn't you feel special if you had a 1/4 tuba, even if it weren't really that?
