This is the new 4/4 size BBb tuba from Miraphone, to be introduced in 2016. Developed with Dirk Hirthe, professor and tuba soloist, this new model compliments the sound and response of the larger 5/4 Hagen 496 and 6/4 Hagen 497 tubas. The advantage to the 495 is that its moderate 4/4 size is easily handled by most players.
The 495 is available with yellow or gold brass body, and in clear lacquer finish or silver plate. We plan to stock the 495 in yellow brass lacquer, but other models can be built to order in 60 days.
This tuba is sold without case, but several choices of hard cases and soft cases are available. Please contact us directly if you seek something specific.
