Item Details

A full-sized, 4/4 tuba with a centered, rich tone. Front action valves and an easy to reach 1st valve slide allow for fine tuning during performance.This is a professional BBb tuba made in the Eastlake, Ohio King Musical Instruments plant, owned by Conn-Selmer.  It is all brass with a nickel leadpipe for corrosion resistance.  Four front pistons have a medium bore of .687", and the bell diameter is 20".  This tuba is a nimble instrument for a jobbing player, whether in orchestras or bands.  It also makes an excellent instrument for school ownership as the large bell adds stability when the tuba is standing on the bell.  The front pistons are less susceptible to damage than fragile rotary valve linkages, and are easily repaired. In addition, the entire body of the tuba unbolts to allow easier repairs.  This has a classic velvety American sound with a beefy low range and a fast response.  Includes a hard case made by MTS in Elkhart, Indiana.
