Better yet, something similar to the 184 with a 2182 bell.

Smaller bell, quicker response?

I guess I should explain my thinking. Nowadays, many high school players are being pushed into learning CC. However, as small and as un-moneyed as I was in high school, i had to settle for clinging on to a lovely 186 BBb for dear life. If there had perhaps been a cheap small CC tuba at the time, I definitely would have looked into buying one, especially as a junior or senior preparing to go off to school

I would not rule out adding a small CC tuba to range later (won't be this year), but think a front piston tuba would be more popular than high bell rotary version.

I'd love to see that, even if it is just as simple as maybe a 5 valve version of the 621 clone already out there. That is something that nobody has done before

Possibly with the larger 821 bell?

I'd like to see a CC 4/4 "Anton." I know you've got the "Mahler" but I just can't get over the looks of that tall bell.

The Anton will be in stock at Wessex Michigan store by the end of the month. I have been playing an Anton a lot myself of recent both with band and orchestra (Prokofiev 5 and Mahler 1). I have had no problems with intonation and love the sound from it. I have had positive feedback from conductors and trombones too.

A Moritz or Bruckner tuba (check out the Szentpali videos!) with a modern valve section!
