Oh so you meant 4th space Gb so the equivalent horrible Aflat partial on the C? Everyone hates that partial, worst partial on the damn tuba, I did find a solution though.
Push in the 3rd valve slide. Pops right out.

Yep. MOST "response" problems on tubas are related to "trying to play a pitch relatively in-tune with the tuba not the correct length to do so".

I am physically incapable of cracking a high Gb, right up until I walk into an audition or recording session when the anti Gb force field hits me. Or at least thats what I tell the juries/music directors...

Or the one you have to hit with cold lips and a contrabass tuba at FFFF in Carmina Burana

I was talking about the one an octave higher, in the treble clef.
