solid tube is different than a cage o' wires in terms of internal field.

At some point, though, if you have enough wires, the cage will be 
identical to the tube.

I'd say off the cuff that when the spacing between wires is smaller than 
the distance to the tree (or broomstick) inside  the cylinder, you can 
start to ignore what's in the middle.
