I wonder if that's why the shaped the Commitees bell the way they did
J. Notso Nieuwguyski
The horn is the sum of its parts. The bell shape alone says nothing. The Committee bell is matched to the rest of its concept.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
The reverse lead pipe set up is cheaper to manufacture.

I'm a tuba player who doubles on trumpet for fun. When we have to drop down into our petal tone range, we start using our extra 4th and 5th valves. When we do this we start to experience large amounts of resistance or what feel like back pressure to the air flow. This would be in reverse of what Bach is representing in their ad copy. Also for a tuba player to feel this resistance we are adding 18" or more of length to the horn. I doubt that the slight change in length of the lead pipe found in a reversed lead pipe would cause a noticeable change in feel.
Sound does not travel with the air flow through the horn. I watched a smoker who played tuba demonstrate this by playing while exhaling his smoke through the horn. It took several minutes for the smoke to start exiting the horn after he started playing. Air flow is used in the production of our buzz only. The resistance felt is from our need to make the volume of air in the horn move so we can produce our buzz.
