Maybe it is because there aren't as many people out there playing Eb abd F tubas as there are playing BBb and CC horns. Also it could be that most of us who do use them for special purposes and not as their main axe. I use both but the F is for solo, tuba ens., and quintet while the Eb is for brass band stuff. Personally though, I feel that my sound (good or bad) comes from my lips and I don't notice a large difference in it no matter what horn I play or what key it is in.
