The miraphone 186 tubas my navy band has are total pieces of uncenterable junk. Every time I play it, it's like Wrestel Mania III trying to get it to hit partial I am shooting for. Any dynamic louder than 1 F makes the notes in the upper regesters split. Trying to play it in tune is another seemingly imposible challenge. It doesn't ballance the band, has great difficulty centering, and refuses to conform to the tuning practices of the western world. If your 186 sucks, your not alone.
