This is the ultimate step-up concert horn for the advancing student or local symphony performer. It features a full .732" bore, 17-2/5" bell, 4 front-action valves with contoured nickel silver pistons, and nickel outer slides. Its beautiful rich tone, ease of blowing, and positive response make it capable of the most beautiful music.
The innovative design of the Jupiter 582 tuba is unique. The valve tubing is an open wrap, unlike anything seen before on the market. The 4 front-action piston valves have a moderate throw due to the good sized bore of the instrument. Good to look at and plenty of sound.
Big bore, big bell, and 4 front-piston valves.

Comments about Jupiter 582 Concert Series 4-Valve 4/4 BBb Tuba:
I bought this tuba to replace my old Amati Bb which served me well all these years. When I first tried it, I was amazed by the sound and the power. I play in a 60 musicians concert band and even if I'm alone to play tuba, it has enough power to be heard. I also do a lot of brass quintet and it delivers everything I ask. The lower register is easy and full. I bought mine used and I'm quite satisfied with it. My only concern was the 2nd valve tuning slide that is always a bit flat but I was told it had been corrected with the more recent models that can be recognized by the 2nd valve slide going upward instead of perpendicular to the valve. Great buy!!!
