I know that this comment will undoubtedly get blasted by the guys that hate them, BUT, if you decide to get a small horn for smaller groups and a big one for larger groups, AND, if you like the big mellow sound of an American style tuba, the Conn 20J thru 25J series are still available rebuilt and very reasonable in price. They are a lot of horn, but you just can't beat the big round sound you can get with one of them. I have even used a 21j with a brass quintet and it worked great.
