First, read what Leland posted because it is excellent advice. Second, remember that choosing an instrument is like choosing what you want on your pizza. Only you can decide because only you know what you like or don't like. You must buy a tuba that feels good to you and that does all the things you need it to do. The very last thing you want is to spend that kind of money and then wish you had something else. Lastly, check the archives of this BBS because this question has come up MANY times before. There will be many entries on the subject and lots of information to be had.
Good luck in your search!
