This is a medium size BBb rotary valve tuba made by Miraphone in Germany. The model 282 body size is about 7/8 of a full size tuba, but its dual bore valve section and vertical tuning slide allow a booming low range. This is one of the more nimble rotary BBb tubas, and it's nice for smaller sized players as well. Options include having the leadpipe placed lower, or a fixed thumb ring to prevent loss. Sold a la carte. Miraphone gig bag or Winter hard case available.
The nickel silver mouthpipe resists corrosion, and the 282 design allows no allow water to pool in the leadpipe if the horn stands on its bell.
