Still digging the Rudy? Intonation is good enough to pass the bloke test?

...candidly (considering this is a 6/4 tuba with an .866" bore), it's remarkably good.

- I have to favor a low B up just a bit (I could readjust the #2 slide trigger to allow for it, but that would mean manning that trigger for all of the other #2 slide pitches).

- I have to favor A♭ at the bottom of the staff at little bit.

- I have to nurse G up in the staff down just a bit (or if fff - such as the last note in Scheherazade, play it with 4th valve)

That's it. :|

With the smaller half of the mouthpipe replaced with a smaller taper, I'm offered remarkable control of slurs and diminuendos.

Tuba is the little Schuster & Co. Army model, the one that seems to get played the most these days. Except now a new horn might be shouldering it out: a 4V King Raincatcher. Amazing playability and sound.

Well, maybe not everyone*, but you're on the right track.

Welcome to the Happy Jumbo Owners' Club. :)

*Gotta take into account that some people's back, shoulder, etc. would not be so happy with a Jumbo. So far, so good on mine.

Two pics, one with my new PT20P, and the other with my Melton/Meinl Weston 186 BBb at the 2013 Akron TUBACHRISTMAS. Side note, I had a Christmas tree on my bell. Definitely my best decoration this far, aside from my fireplace and mantel I put in my sous the year before.
