Comments about Allora AATU-105P Series 4-Piston Valve 3/4 BBb Tuba:
Yea, the title says it all. I purchased this tuba a while ago to use in orchestra, until I could get my hands on a CC tuba. To be completely honest, i don't know why I didn't send it back. I didn't play it much until after the 45 day warranty was lifted, and I have discovered some nasty things about the poorly made Chinese horn. 1) this is in NO WAY shape or form a responsive tuba. It is extremely difficult to try to push out anything below F (below the staff) 2)the tuning is absolutely awful 3)the 4th valve serves absolutely NO purpose on this horn in the pedal range. There is so much back pressure with it you can't even play a pedal Eb without busting a gut 4)so easily overblown. Try to bring it above fortissimo, and the tuba rattles and shakes like nobody's business. 5) do your self a favor and don't buy this horn; or any other horn like this
