On the B&S rotary Neptune (PT-7 rotary), I just switched from the Stofer Geib to the G&W MMVI "Baer" (Euroshank). Both work really well, as does a three -
piece "Blokepiece" that Joe put together for me. I could easily live with any of those three.

Schilke 67 on an early (1990ish) Willson EEb 3+1 and either a Denis Wick 2XL or Perantucci PT-50 (depending on how I feel or have remembered to pack..) on a B&S PT-20 CC.Have tried various but still keep coming back to the Schilke... yet to try a Blokepiece but that's on my "to do" list.

Having played - hands down - the (new) best 6/4 piston C tuba (and face-to-face with the opportunity to pick one up for myself), I'm still - for now - staying away from (as I've stated over the past two or three years, and for the same reasons) 6/4 piston C tubas. Yeah... I was tempted (particularly with the really outstanding intonation offered with such a large instrument), but "going back and playing my own instrument for a couple of minutes" calmed that interest, and the dough receded back into my pocket.

bloke "It's really been an extraordinary fad, hasn't it? It's lasted about 37 years (dating back to the Hirsbrunner model 510 release, though a few handfuls of pre-fad Holton 345CC's were previously released), so far, and one or two of them - finally - have been released which are actually easy to play in tune - with one of them being financially accessible to many players...but I still view the fad (having been in and out of the midst of it) as the wrong direction to go - as far as a solo contrabass tuba in a symphony orchestra is concerned."

Bloke,
I never thought I'd say this, but I'd like you to enlarge on and explain what you're saying here about these CCs.
