Both the PT-6 and the PT-6P are superb tubas, with excellent tone, reponse, and intonation. The PT-6 is smoother, with more connected, almost liquid, slurs,
while the PT-6P has more core to its sound and plays a bit punchier. The PT-6 is remarkably consistent from horn to horn, while some PT-6Ps (particularly the earlier horns) are said to be less consistent.
