I own a couple of your products. They are good for the price. The mouthpieces give a great core to the sound and make my horn have even wider slots.
Mack-a-clone 186 Chairman Mao
Blokepiece Imperial
Lignatone Eb Sigmund Freud
Amati Eb Klement Gottwald
Blokepiece Solo
Mack Brass Bass Bone Sun Tzu
Douglas Yeo Replica Mouthpiece
Why have 3 valves when you can have 6 and a main tuning slide kicker???

I thought the secret was instead of giving 100% to music you need to give (yourself a tuba that is sized as) 150%

good, gud, gudder, and better don't actually mean much by themselves. You need a standard of comparison.
