I looked at the deal for this thing and thought it was too good to be true, honestly. The seller didnt give much info. and the whole thing seemed shady a bit. But I took a chance, a leap o' faith if you will, and bought this fantastically rich sounding instrument.

Pros are as follows:
- Very good mid tones
- Its new for 1199 dollars? (when i got it)
- Absolutely beautiful case with burgundy carpet lining the inside, top notch, really.
- Came with a mouthpiece, I mean they didnt even mention that it would; thanks anyways lol
- Very easy to get back into the groove with this one. I hadn't played in 2 years and when I played again all the vigor that came with it back then surged back to me. There's power in this relatively scamped tubing of an instrument. Surprised me, yet again.
Cons are as follows:
- Lack of information will probably deter most of you from buying this which in itself is a stupid marketing move on the seller's part. But trust me, it got here.(In "fragile" labeled boxing)
- The delivery was about 7-9 days and they gave no option for a speedier delivery. So if you need something now I'd go to your local brass specialty shop instead of this.
- The rotars on this thing aren't as smooth as I had hoped, though with a bit of tinkering on my part I could probably get them unwound to not be so tight, so this is probably a future edit out. Just a heads up.
- The lows on this thing flub out occasionally when you are coming down a scale and try to hit them which may or may not be due to it being a 3/4 tuba and having more tightly wound tubing.

While there were some manufacturer's issues that had to be resolved and repaired ( Fulcrum bar for the paddles was found bent upon receipt...caused by improperly installed brackets ), the instrument is a joy to play for a smaller person like me. Also, experienced tuba players in my Portuguese band club said "Now that's a Tuba!" and would love to have one for themselves when they retire from marching. It is very responsive and produces wonderful tone easily, according to them. What better testimonial could be given than that?

I had not played in over five years. The horn I played in high school was a beat up, vomited-on, bat-containing sousaphone of 1960s vintage, and had dents the size of Texas in it. I bought another horn on Ebay several years ago for $350, and it sounded about as good as the sousaphone (plus had a valve that stuck and slides that did not move well at all). Sold that horn, and did not play again until I succumbed to the temptation of a brand-new horn with rotary valves, functional slides, no dents, and a hardshell case on Amazon.com.

Valves are all nice and reasonably quiet (a little clacky on the third rotor linkage), but can't beat the sound for the money.
