I was just at Buddy Roger's to buy some valve oil, and saw the MRP F, and immediately gravitated towards it. If I had the money, I would have bought this horn in a heartbeat. This MRP is one of the best F tubas I've ever played, hands down.

Stopped by and played all the instruments currently available at Buddy Rodgers. If you live in the midwest, it's definitely worth a visit. The Mr. P F tuba is a superb example of the make and definitely has an easier low range than the older German F tubas of the past. Also, they have a 4/4 Eastman CC that many will find as a perfect all around instrument. Both the 4/4 Eastman and JP 4/4 CC in stock play very easily. They also have the full Tucci mouthpiece line available.

All in all, you'll definitely find something you like, so take a visit.

Just swung by the shop yesterday to drop and pick up a tuba or two for some work by Chris Hite. The GR51 I played was really nice and the Eastman 6324/4 CC they had was one of the best I’ve ever played! Chris is putting Buddy Rogers on the map as a tuba shop!

I really liked the GR51 also - It felt like I couldn't miss a note. My next favorite horn was a surprise - the "Accent" BBb. I think it was this one: http://accentmusicalinstruments.com/pro ... 980l-tuba/. I might have my horns mixed up, but I think it was a clone of the current King 2341. It played remarkably well for a budget horn.

Will, you are correct. The Accent TU980L is based on the King 2341 and sports many of the same attributes as other copies. What makes it different is the gold brass bell and leadpipe, and that the valve section and leadpipe are soldered to the body with three-piece braces. The King and its copies often have the removable valveset and leadpipe.

I'm sorry I missed your visit but thanks for coming by the showroom. Hopefully, we'll meet up at a show soon.
