From Adams:

Adams tubas, handcrafted from plate, combine superb tuning and intonation with effortless response. Their comprehensive overtone spectrum ensures a rich and beautiful tuba sound throughout all registers. These instruments blend perfectly with any orchestral configuration and their firm and stable resonance and colors lend them a very vivid presence. They are the perfect tubas for ensemble players, yet they also have the grace and power to meet the exacting requirements of solo performers.

The Adams 4/4 Custom Series Tuba is available in Bb and C. You can also choose piston or rotary valves and customize your bell and finish. Here are the specs for the Selected Series models:

"The Adams Bb tuba simply is what it needs to be: a real foundation stone in any orchestra, large or small. Adams has managed to overcome the rigidity that characterizes many Bb tubas in the world. The instrument has great response and fantastic intonation. It is a modern instrument that represents an improvement on everything else available."
