Comments about Cerveny CCB 601-5PRX CC Tuba:
Great sound, a little tricky when it comes to slide manipulation. Really BIG horn, not for a wimp, takes a serious pair of lungs, but the results are worth much more than the price implies.
6/4 size, large bore, large bell results in a very dark, heavy, beautiful sound.
Bell wreath allows starting/stopping a tone with great control. The main drawback is that the 5th valve is played with the left hand, which can make it a little tricky manipulating the slides. The large bore and overall size can use up the player's wind pretty fast, but the sound it gets is worth the extra effort.
The quality of the sound is superb. I have yet to hear a tuba with better tone quality in all ranges.
I ranked it 8 instead of 10 because the slides can be a little cumbersome to move on the fly while dealing with a left-hand 5th valve. The brass is relatively soft, so you can't knock it around. The extreme low range comes easily and has a strong, dark quality, not flabby like some smaller-bore horns.
For the price you pay, the sound is truly a great value.
