About your reference to G tubas. I know there is little enthusiasm for DCI (Drum Corps International) here, but all "baritone bugles" are key of G and some of them have 4 valves and OK intonation. Also the "contras" are now available with 4 valves and are in the key of GG. I don't know how good they are, but some of the three valve models I've played were ok. Wouldn't it be easier to modify a horn that was already in the key of G?
