That would be the 3200. A fine F tuba, that doesn't come around too often!

The original mate to that horn was the 3200FA-5, which is no longer advertised but could probably still be purchased. The two new F tubas are the XL, which has a different wrap, and the new smaller F, which also has a different wrap.

The older version of the 3200FA-5 was sold under the label KURATH and was identical to the original version of the 3200 except that it did not have a patented Willson Rotax 5th valve, but a generic rotor. (Mine looks to have been made by J├╝rgen Voigt in Germany.) These are more handmade than the later Willson 3200s and play really well. They are also very heavy, and are rather rare. If you come across a Kurath F tuba that is essentially the same as what you are looking for and would be very much worth looking into. There have been a few up for sale here over the last five or six years.

Good luck!

For all you do, this " target="_blank's for you.
