Is the new King the only true American sounding tuba
currently being made? I understand that a few love
getting their hands on old Conns, the 5J doesn't seem
to achieve past Conn success'. If a pro was to purchase
a BBb and was looking for the American sound, what might they
choose? And to the euphers, what of the King horns? The band is
considering the whole line for low brass.
Also, had anyone heard of a toy trumpet that King made back in the
day, I hear the Smithsonian has one.
