Gronitz PCM 4/4 Piston CC Tuba

Item Details

The Gronitz is built in Hamburg Germany by Dietrich Kleinehorst, one of the great brass instrument builders of this age.  The PCM means 'Piston CC Medium', and is a 4/4 size, four piston, one rotary valve tuba, available in silver plate, lacquer, or raw brass. At times this has been one of the most sought after tubas. They are made from very lightweight sheet brass with a wide bell flare. The tone is warm and velvety, and it can sound like a much bigger instrument, though maybe with not the extreme volumes available of a 6/4 tuba.  This standard size is a lot easier to handle though.  Similar models from other makers would be the Hirsbrunner 290, the Meinl Weston 2145 (which plays nothing like this but looks similar), and the Adams CC.  This tuba is well rounded and excels in most every situation, orchestral or chamber music, recording studio or orchestra pit. The tuba is handmade in Hamburg Germany with beautiful craftsmanship. Pistons are made by Bauerfeind .  It's a really  beautiful instrument with a liveliness you don't easily find from larger makers.  This tuba is sold without case, but we can adjust the SKB390W hard case for a snug fit.


5.25.17: We have one PCM in stock in silver plate at a special price.  This one was the showroom display model at the Gronitz factory.  It's in new condition, but has a few marks from handling.

Included:  the tuba is sold without accompaniment
