These tubas (or at least the ones I've tried) are pretty darned easy to play and have easy intonation. Price ain't bad if it's a solid instrument and the cases aren't crap.

If good valves, those put out a righteous sound with very good intonation...other than a sharp Eb in the staff...and with sousaphone-easy false tones. The thing that goes bad (soft and mushy) on those cases is the curved area for the bell elbow.
