Can we get definition of small and large bass tuba? Are you meaning small as in 2182 or perhaps Miraphone 180 small? Are you meaning something like MW 45 for big or does something like a Besson 981 qualify as large bass tuba?

Ah, point of information, who's going to collect all the other tubas and who's going to pay for all the 186's? I would think we would get a volume discount but an order that large will take a while to manufacture. Maybe Wessex can help us out.
