Those 6v jinbao F tubas with wonky intonation.. I have a theory about fixing that problem & want to try it out cheaply.

I'd be interested to know what you find out on this. I played one of these before I got my BMB F, and thought it was a shame that it had a decent sound, but such unworkable intonation issues.

Has a 6 valve model come out that replaces this one?

I had one of the Jinbao 4+2 F tubas. The uneven taper made it a terrible tuba, but the cylindrical valve section made it a wonderful cimbasso conversion when I had it mated to a small euphonium bell section.
